Friends of Haiti is a nonprofit, volunteer organization collaborating with the people living in the Thomazeau region of Haiti. We are devoted, through our mutual efforts, to improve their health and wellness and human and economic development.
Our vision is a Haitian community within the Thomazeau region where:
- The Haitian people we partner with experience improved living conditions through additional access to health and dental care, better availability to clean water and the opportunity for continuous education. We envision a level of economic well being that enables them to live with dignity.
- We are able to provide dedicated volunteers that have compassion, skills, knowledge and abilities needed to support our mission.
- We are able to efficiently and effectively coordinate and finance medical missions managed by Haitian providers.
