Healing the Children

Sustainability Spotlight - Haiti

kids in haiti

After the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010, the Oregon Western Washington Chapter of Healing the Children responded with a lasting commitment to Haiti.

The crisis in Haiti continues…

  • 50% of children are unvaccinated
  • 60% lack access to basic health care
  • 83% of population lack basic sanitation
  • 49% lack access to clean water
  • 1 doctor for every 4,000 people
  •  

ORWWA has taken a leadership role in sustainable medical development in Haiti. In addition to our direct aid to children through medical teams in Haiti and our international inbound program, we are also working to improve the medical infrastructure in Haiti. Our training programs for teenagers are one example. The need for first aid training was identified in a community needs assessment, so our ongoing medical missions help to train and certify teenagers as medical facilitators.
