Hope Health Action is a Christian NGO with a mission to build long-term partnerships with local communities and health systems to facilitate sustainable, innovative and life-saving health and disability care for the most vulnerable. We seek to bring hope, health and action to the world's poorest and believe every person has the right to quality health-care without discrimination.
Half of the world's population lack access to essential health care whilst those with disabilities in developing countries are amongst the most vulnerable and marginalised. We're passionate about changing this by equipping and empowering locally lead community and facility based health projects in Haiti, Uganda and South Sudan.
We have been working in Haiti since 2007, where we co-founded one of the leading hospitals in the north, HCBH, working alongside a Haitian team to provide access to critical and comprehensive health and disability care to the community. In 2016, we expanded our work into East Africa, where we support refugees displaced by the conflict in South Sudan, now living in BidiBidi settlement. who are faced with significant challenges on a daily basis, including access to health and disability care.
In Haiti, HCBH which now treats over 30,000 patients annually and employs over 300 Haitian staff across departments including maternity, pediatrics and rehabilitation. In East Africa we work with our partners to deliver food aid, agriculture projects and distribute wheelchairs to thousands of individuals. In 2022, we opened New Hope Rehabilitation Centre, which provides prosthetics, orthotics and physiotherapy services to the refugee population. Our future goals are to expand these services.
