The Colorado Haiti Project has been working with community leaders in the rural town of Petit Trou de Nippes for over 28 years, supporting community-driven programs in education, community health, water and hygiene, girls’ and women’s empowerment, and agriculture. We provide resources to Haitian leaders, building bridges from the U.S. to Haiti that provide vital support for local vision and leadership.
The Colorado Haiti Project was founded in 1989 by three Episcopal priests: Haitian Father Octave LaFontant and Coloradans Fathers Dayle Casey and Father Ed Morgan. Over time, we have transitioned from direct service missions to a strong emphasis on local leadership. Today, our work reaches a broad audience both within and outside of the Colorado and Haitian Episcopal communities. Our work is not specific to one faith and does not advance a particular religious ideology.
It is a privilege to introduce you to Healing for Haiti, a New Jersey based 501 (c) (3) organization.

Our Board of Directors are a highly motivated group, largely composed of medical professionals, led by Christopher Godek, MD, FACS, and renowned New Jersey Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.

IHDO is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 1999 to provide preventative women’s health care in Haiti.
Cervical cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer related death in Haitian women. Pap smears prevent cervical cancer, but, like many other preventative screening measures, are not widely performed in Haiti. IHDO runs an annual health screening campaign – coinciding with Haitian mother’s day at the end of May – to perform pap smears and physical exams. More importantly, IHDO’s physician and nurse volunteers train Haitian doctors and nurses how to perform pap smears and on the importance of preventative health care, so they may continue this important mission and change the face of healthcare in Haiti.

he mission of KORE Haiti is to support the Haitian community by addressing educational barriers, access to healthcare, and economic sustainability through diverse partnerships. Why health, education and economic sustainability? Our primary objective is to improve the overall health of the Haitian people. However, social determinants of health teaches us one cannot work without the other, the fate of each are intertwined. Overall health cannot be ameliorated without focusing on the root of the problem. We aim to address the challenges that impede overall health of the Haitian people.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) was founded in 1971 in France by a group of doctors and journalists in the wake of war and famine in Biafra. Their aim was to establish an independent organisation that focuses on delivering emergency medicine aid quickly, effectively and impartially.
Three hundred volunteers made up the organisation when it was founded: doctors, nurses and other staff, including the 13 founding doctors and journalists.
MSF was created in the belief that all people should have access to healthcare regardless of gender, race, religion, creed or political affiliation, and that people’s medical needs outweigh respect for national boundaries. MSF’s principles of action are described in our charter, which established a framework for our activities.

Primary Care Haiti is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to saving lives by changing the healthcare paradigm in Haiti. We focus on primary and emergency care, supported by community education. We raise and distribute funds to make it possible for Haitian healthcare professionals to be trained in preventative and emergency care, and provide Basic Life Support and Advanced Cardiac Life Support.
Primary Care Haiti distributes donated medical equipment and educates Haitian doctors and nurses working in rural towns. We concentrate on preventative medicine, specifically, physical exam skills, cervical cancer screening, and the management of chronic diseases like high blood pressure. We also teach the rapid-response skills needed for Haitian healthcare professionals to be ready for any emergency.
Cervical cancer – the number one cause of cancer in women in Haiti – is one of the reasons we focus on preventative primary care. This year, Primary Care Haiti partnered with MobileODT – an Israeli company whose innovative mobile colposcope has revolutionized cervical cancer screening – to perform hundreds of cervical cancer screenings in Haiti. We found many asymptomatic women with abnormal cervical cells which would have surely progressed to become life-threatening had we not conducted this simple, yet life-saving, screening exam. Our goal is to purchase more colposcopes and expand the use of this technology throughout rural Haiti so all women have access to cervical cancer screening and rapid treatment.

The St. Luke Foundation is a Haitian run organization that provides education, medical care and dignified humanitarian outreach to over 150,000 people per year through life giving programs that employ over 900 Haitian staff. Father Rick Frechette, an American priest and doctor, started the work of the St. Luke mission in collaboration with an inspired group of young Haitian leaders, who, together, saw a different path forward for their country.
Founded in 2001, the St Luke Programs grew out of the programs of Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs, which Father Frechette started over 25 years ago. As the young people of NPFS programs grew into adulthood they sought to create a completely organic and native organization whose goal would be to propel change and progress in Haiti. This initiative became the St Luke Foundation. While the St Luke Foundation is a separate entity, there is a great deal of collaboration and shared vision and leadership between St Luke and NPFS Programs. Between the two programs we provide education to over 10,000 students annually, medical care to over 200,000 annually and employment to over 1800 permanent staff.
We at St Luke are grateful to benefit from long term support and friendship from our international partners at the Francesca Rava Foundation (NPH Italia) and Our Little Brothers and Sisters Europe. For more details see our Ambassadors Page.
