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!

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.
