Promise For Haiti's Mission with Healthcare

About Hospital Bienfaisance of Pignon.

 

Hospital Bienfaisance ​provides healthcare​ for people in the northern Central Plateau of Haiti ​and seeks​ to provide ongoing training for doctors, nurses and specialty personnel while serving the poor and underserved in the region. The hospital is a modern 65 bed hospital with two operating rooms, a full lab facility, endoscopy, x-ray, and a complete pharmacy.  Hospital Bienfaisance exists to serve and provide care for all who walk in the door-- whether or not one can pay will not exclude someone from receiving care. Promise for Haiti subsidize​s​ the hospital’s costs incurred by providing services to those who cannot afford the care in-full or at all. We can only do this with the generous support of people and partners across the United States and within the Haitian community.

Become a health partner.

Unlike the US health care system, in Haiti there is not a prevalent health insurance sector or government subsidized health care programs, leaving many Haitians unable to afford quality health care. 

Here is how it works: As a Health Partner, your monthly donation provides needed health care for your Health Partners for an entire year. Your Haitian partners are enrolled in a Health Development Account (or HDA) when they contribute a small amount towards the account each year ($1-$20 per family) and your partnership fills the rest of the account. When they are in need of health care, they access their account at Hospital Bienfaisance for preventive and curative health care services.  Sponsor a family in Haiti.

Join us today and become a Health Partner of a person or family today, and help them afford high-quality health care services in Haiti!

Maternal Health and Maternity Waiting House

Maternal Health and Maternity Waiting House

The Maternity Waiting House (MWH) is a ten room birthing & housing center that accommodates pregnant mothers identified by Community Health Workers (CHW) as a high-risk pregnancy. MWH serves as a strategy for reducing levels of maternal and infant morbidity and mortality with early pregnancy healthcare and maternity care. In Haiti the Maternal Mortality Rate is one of the highest in the world, but at Hospital Bienfaisance this rate is 35% lower than the national average due to the high quality of care and educating the community on some of the causes of maternal mortality.

Prosthetics Clinic

Prosthetics Clinic

The earthquake in 2010, caused incalculable damage to the lives of many in Haiti and left thousands of amputees in the country in need of prosthetic limbs. Promise for Haiti and Hospital Bienfaisance partnered with Rotary International to develop the Jaipur House and Prosthetics Lab to meet the needs of the country's amputee population. In 3 years (2012-2015), the clinic has provided 145 prosthetic limbs to 140 patients! Even after earthquake victims are helped in Haiti, there will continue to be a great need for prosthetic limbs as a result of traumatic accidents in the growing country.

Cholera Clinic

Cholera Clinic

The earthquake in October of 2010 and with Hurricane Matthew in 2016, a nationwide Cholera epidemic has hit Haiti and is expected to get worse. The Cholera Clinic has been established at the hospital to continue to treat patients with this deadly but curable disease. The need continues as Cholera is expected to plague the country for years before it is once again eradicated. Treatments for Cholera and prevention education continue to be a high priority around fresh water supply & sanitation. Everyone has the right to clean water.
Dental Clinic

Dental Clinic

Promise for Haiti has partnered with Comite Bienfaisance to operate a Dental Clinic on Hospital Bienfaisance grounds.

With thanks to many supporters and partners we can help bring healthy smiles to thousands of patients in Pignon Haiti every year!

    Nayda and Naydoline are 10 year old twins who attend Sonshine Christian School in Savanette, Haiti. They have sponsors and are able to attend school, get a meal and dream about their futures. Promise For Haiti has partnered with H.E.L.P. to serve over 2,000 students annually with 9 schools in Haiti's central mountainous region. Each school has its own well for clean water, however there is an impending risk of needing to close 2 schools in 2018 due to lack of funding. Sponsor a child's education and demonstrate the value you place on helping others as a family, a school class, church group, or business.

  • Kominote Bondye - Church Partnerships

    Kominote Bondye - Church Partnerships

    Roughly translated, Kominote Bondye is God's Community. Since our formation in 1981, Promise for Haiti has been partnering with churches of all denominations to fulfill our mission to be Christ's hands and feet in Haiti. Churches have joined hands and helped in a myriad of ways from raising funds, feeding children, building latrines, holding Bible classes, and praying over our mission. They have given up their time and energy to put together teams to fly to Haiti and lovingly serve.
    Offerings, change drives, and other fundraisers have paved the way for new schools and quality healthcare. It has also shown the love of Jesus Christ in the process.
