Imagine living in a world where children die of diarrhea, high blood pressure and diabetes go untreated, and even mild infections are life threatening. All because of an overwhelmed and ill-equipped health care system. Americans are now facing just this possibility due to the coronavirus pandemic that has led to such unprecedented disruption in our daily lives. Unfortunately, this terrible situation is an everyday reality of life for most Haitians.
With few doctors and clinics, even fewer well-equipped hospitals and almost no ICU beds, people die or suffer complications from preventable and treatable problems every day. And now the coronavirus will exploit this systemic weakness with potentially catastrophic results. Please help HVF as we build healthcare capacity in Dondon. Not just for difficult times like these, but for everyone, every day. Certainly, we all deserve high quality care, pandemic or not.
We have the land, we have the plans and we are interviewing contractors. The coronavirus pandemic may slow us down, but it will not stop us.
