Friends of the Children of Haiti
Friends of the Children of Haiti (FOTCOH) provides life-saving support to over 15,000 Haitians patients at the FOTCOH medical clinic in Jacmel, Haiti. Every year, hundreds of volunteers travel to the FOTCOH clinic to provide medical care to Haitians in need.
Richard and Barbara Hammond starting traveling to Haiti in the 70’s on medical mission to providing life-saving support to the Haitian people. In 2000, the FOTCOH clinic was completed in Cyvadier, Haiti. 6 times a year, volunteer medical teams travel to the clinic to treat patients, and in between, mini clinics are run by a Haitian doctor so patients can continue to receive the care and medication they need. The clinic sees upwards of 15,000 Haitian patients each year.
Friends of the Children of Haiti works to:
– Bring doctors, nurses, EMTs, pharmacists and other medical professionals to work at our clinic to triage injuries, treat illness, offer prenatal care and perform major surgery
– Fighting hunger with our Medika Mamba nutrition program.
– Creating economic opportunity by training and employing a Haitian staff at our clinic
