For You Haiti exists to assist, uplift and enrich the lives of the people living on

La Gonâve. We seek a holistic approach to the challenges faced by the children and families on the island that takes into account three primary areas of need: 

education, medicine, and nutrition.

Cathy has spent the last 3 months in Adventist Hospital in Port au Prince after having major spinal surgery. Without this life changing surgery Cath would have eventually been unable to walk. Cathy’s Mom was with her everyday, and our FYH Medical team has just welcomed Cathy and her Mom home to La Gonave. She will return to Port au Prince once more to have her HALO Track removed. We would like to thank Childspring International, her phenomenal surgeon, and the team at Adventist Hospital for their dedication to Cathy. This would not have been possible without you!

Clavensky lives in a rural area of La Gonave, Haiti. He was born with a club foot. 

For You Haiti arranged surgery for Clavensky at Haiti Adventist Hospital. Everything went so well and Clavensky has made a full recovery!
He can now wear shoes for the first time in his life, is walking properly and leads an active lifestyle.

It is such an honor to see Clavenksy’s straight foot and to be on this journey with him and his Mom!

Gorgeous baby Darmalie was born on La Gonave Island with Spina bifida. Spina Bifida can result in many disabilities, including paralysis of the lower body and legs, causing walking difficulties or inability to walk.

The growth on Darmalie's back, a meningocele needed to be surgically repaired by a Neurosurgeon. 

Our For You Haiti team accompanied baby Darmalie at just 9 weeks old to a hospital in north Haiti where she received her life changing surgery! Darmalie is our youngest patient to date!

Dalenson was born with severe cataracts in both eyes, meaning he was blind from birth. 

Dalenson’s life sadly consisted of sitting in the dirt and eating it. He was not walking or talking and was suffering from severe malnutrition.  

For You Haiti was contacted by doctors on La Gonave who had seen him and asked for help for him. We arranged an initial consult with an Ophthalmologist in Port Au Prince who confirmed the diagnosis and arranged his surgery. 
Surgery was successful however Dalenson had to learn to use his newly acquired sight, like a newborn. 

With much support and encouragement through weekly visi...

All 300 students were SO thrilled to welcome For You Haiti’s amazing Ambassador, Tom Bull to school for the first time! The children were all very proud to show Tom their school books and around their classrooms. Tom visited la Gonave for 3 days on behalf of Brietling, USA and visited many regions of the island. Tom stayed with his sponsored child, Darlie’s family and spend lots of precious time with her. 

It was such a positive visit for everyone involved. We can’t wait to welcome Tom back to the island again soon! Thank you for changing our lives, Tom!!! We truly love you! 

To see a video of Tom’s wonderful tri...

 We all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Hungry Tummies is a simple program that aims to put food in the bellies of hungry children as they arrive at school. Not only does this program encourage children to attend school, but for some, this meal might be the only food they receive that day.
