Lamp for Haiti

Shining A Light On Health, Partnership and Community

Lamp for Haiti provides primary and urgent health care services for the poorest individuals living in Cite Soleil, Haiti. In 2006, Lamp for Haiti began its mission with the development of a health clinic to provide affordable, quality services in the Bwa Nef section of Cite Soleil, where there are no health care facilities for the community's 35,000 residents. Through collaborations with local partners and the hiring of a full time Haitian medical team, the Lamp for Haiti health clinic has grown from a one room facility into a full fledged health clinic complete with exam rooms, a women’s health and child nutrition program, an x-ray room and on-site laboratory.

Our 10-person medical team treats an average of 1,000 patients a month, addressing child malnutrition, providing pre and post natal care and combatting preventable diseases such as diarrheal illnesses, hypertension, acute respiratory illness, tuberculosis and HIV.

We request that patients pay an equivalent of 25 cents for each doctor’s visit, not out of need, but rather to empower them to feel invested in their own well being, giving them a hand up versus a hand out.
