Santa’s life is far from easy. She lives in the remote village of Capotille, nestled deep in the mountains of northern Haiti. Her parents and 11 siblings share a small home and make money selling items in the market. As hard as they work, their circumstances barely get them through each day with enough to eat.
When people become sick in Haiti, their options are limited by the area in which they live and the resources they have to afford medical treatment. Danita’s Children dreamed of providing quality care in a clean facility, where healing is possible for all families. The Medical Center at Hope for Haiti provides families and children access to life-saving health care.
Our medical center serves children from across the country. This three-story, 17,000 square foot medical facility, is a place of healing. Our medical staff is able to diagnose patients with on-site radiology and lab equipment and treat patients with an on-site pharmacy.
The medical center is being equipped to offer surgical and inpatient care. We also provide health awareness education programs to inform the community on how to prevent disease and better maintain care for themselves daily.
The medical center is a place of hope for parents and children. Danita’s Children chooses to take a holistic approach to healing, focusing on the physical well-being of each patient and the emotional and spiritual needs of each child and family we serve.
The medical center’s operations is sponsored by faithful donors while operated under the direction of executives from Ascension Health, the largest faith based/not-for-profit health system.
