One month after the earthquake workload at HAH not diminishing

The last few weeks have been a blur. Even before the August 14 earthquake there was rarely a dull moment at HAH.

We would like to take a “petite pause” to share our heartfelt gratitude with each of you who have reached out to express your love and concern–for the Haitian people, for Hôpital Adventiste d’Haïti, and for each of us.  It truly means so much! We regret that we have not been able to reply to …

How HAH is holding up to yet another disaster

What is happening in Haiti that you are not hearing about on the news

In a text message to a friend on Thursday, Rob, a visiting med student sums it up: “Things are insane, but only slightly more than usual”.

New Record at HAH

During the month of October we performed more surgeries than ever in the recorded history of HAH. Our staff crushed the previous record from April 2018 when we did 101 cases. (That was with the help of a high powered visiting team) Last month we did 121 cases and these were all done by our …
