By taking stock of the past year, we see the results and impacts generated. For América Solidaria - Haiti, this year has been rich in experiences, challenges and achievements. There’s still lack of many actions and hands to end the inequities in Haiti, but we are on the right track and we thank you, collaborators and all those who in one way or another support this cause, because we are sure that it is worth the contribution we are bringing together.

According to data from the Haitian Ministry of Public Health, only 37.3% of births are attended by a health professional, the maternal mortality rate is 380 children per 100,000 live births and infant mortality is 69 deaths per 1,000 live births. Despite everything, according to UNICEF, the situation is improving; it is excellent news because, among all, we contribute to improve the situation.

The contribution of GlobalGiving donors contributed to the implementation of the program "Care for the young and newborns in Haiti" which was implemented in 2 institutions of vulnerable localities of Haiti: in the department of health of Sant Zanj Makenson, a school in Wharf Jerémie at Cité Soleil and Klinik Saint Esprit in Croix des Bouquets. As a result, we provide prenatal medical care, general medical care, nutrition education for pregnant women, as well as postpartum care and counseling. Without these initiatives, many pregnant women of those localities would not have access to any kind of medical care.

Since the beginning of the campaign to date, we have received 35 donations, raising a total of $ 665, which has enabled 46.2% of our target to receive direct attention and participate in workshops of prevention. As for the work done, Natalia, a Chilean professional volunteer from the Cité Soleil project, explain: "We have been able to certify that the only way to obtain a change in this system that only deals with some and leaves the others outside is uniting the will and understanding that the poverty of some makes us all poor ", because for example, Marie-Louise, a pregnant Haitian mother attended the center, for lack of timely care elsewhere, lost her twins during childbirth.

In America Solidaria, we are very grateful to all those who value inclusion and who help to improve the lives of pregnant women so that they have greater peace of mind during pregnancy and have better tools to care for their children born in Haiti.

We invite you to continue to join the cause and invite others to come along. Thank you very much for continuing to walk with us and continue to say NO to inequalities in Haiti! Your contribution is very precious and will be very usefull!
