Challenge

From a distance, Borgne appears to be a picturesque seaside community with beautiful beaching and a lush river. Up close, the 100 square mile community hosting 80,000 residents, shows the struggles and hardships living in extreme poverty. Residents have limited access to health care in their rural community. Infant mortality is high and life expectancy is half of developed countries. Women and children are the most vulnerable with diseases of TB, malnutrition and infections.

Solution

The H.O.P.E. medical center offers affordable health services to the women and children in the community. The center offers labor and delivery services, vaccinations, Tuberculosis treatment, post-natal care and infant/child check ups and treatments.

Long-Term Impact

We believe the best solutions for achieving a meaningful impact in Haiti are rooted directly in the community. Maternal and infant care will provide a better outcome for the entire community and for future physical and social well-being. A healthier family unit will optimize learning, work, self-sufficiency and survival.
