Hopes for the future of Neonatal Care at HCBH

The Neonatal Intensive Care unit at our partner hospital in Haiti has been incredibly busy in the last few months, taking in additional patients from other health facilities that had to reduce services or close due to political unrest and fuel shortages. One day, there were 21 babies in a ward designed for 8, including 4 sets of twins.

One mother told us; "I am very happy to have given birth to my twins at HCBH. I was properly treated and the nurses made me feel at home and that's the kind of insurance I need to show that me and my babies are protected."

We're very happy to say these little ones recovered from their conditions, including jaundice and were discharged after a few days.

668 babies were admitted to the Neonatal Care Unit (NICU) at our partner hospital between July 2020 and June 2021. At times, the incredible team of Doctors and Nurses were treating over 20 babies in a unit designed for 8. This significantly impacts patient care.

Haiti struggles with the highest rate of infant mortality in the western hemisphere. For a long time, we've wanted to expand this unit to provide high quality, life-saving care to more babies and we are still working hard to achieve this goal. We aim to start actively fundraising towards this project in 2022 and hope that you will join us in our journey to dramatically improve care for new-borns in northern Haiti and help save the lives of thousands of babies in the years to come.

We thank you so much for your continued support of our maternity and paediatric care at our hospital. Lives are saved every day thanks to your support.
