Making a Difference
Millions of people are hurting in Haiti, but we have developed a way to help ease the hurt and despair. Our well trained Family Nurse Practitioner students are able to practice independently in Haiti and care for a population desperately in need of health care!
PHH has graduated 68 Family Nurse Practitioners. In a few short months, our next cohort of students will begin their clinical experience in preparation of their graduation.
We have been able to do this only because of your donations. The impact of every dollar you donate will be amplified over the years, as these nurses provide much needed care; and as they teach future cohorts of nurse practitioner students. It has truly been a joint effort and we are grateful for your help and generosity.
Thank you! We appreciate your generosity!
IN MEMORIAM DR. PAUL FARMER 1959-2022
PHH mourns the passing of Paul Farmer, the first American doctor and academician who saw the major health needs in Haiti. He was, in a sense, our mentor though we never met him personally. He recognized the acute health needs of the Haitian people before he became a doctor. We are nurses who recognized that same need and are educating nurse practitioners to meet that health deficiency.
Dr. Farmer died unexpectedly in his sleep in Rwanda on January 21st as reported by Partners in Health, the group he founded. He was only 62 years old.
He left an inspiring legacy and a model that each and everyone can follow. However, the world is a less caring, compassionate place without him.
We will miss him.
