SAVES LIVES AND PROVIDES HOPE FOR HAITI’S FUTURE
Project Medishare is dedicated to providing comprehensive health and development services and building capacity in Haiti. Project Medishare’s work saves lives and forms the foundation upon which larger social change is built.
The organization treats more than 180,000 people annually and operates the country’s only critical care and trauma hospital, the only Newborn and Pediatric Intensive Care Units for the sickest premature infants and children, multiple rural community health clinics, a major cholera treatment facility and the nation’s most advanced prosthetics facility. Project Medishare also mobilized the first medical team on the ground in Haiti just 12 hours after the devastating 2010 earthquake. Learn more about Project Medishare and how you can help.
Project HOPE Art worked in the pediatric clinic at Project Medishare creating murals, flying cranes, beads and coloring projects with patients and their families. Passing the hours in a hospital room is one of the hardest things a patient and caregiver can endure. Giving patients a creative way to break up their day and a beautiful result to hang on the wall can reduce stress and create a calm atmosphere to heal in.
