A Special Message from Dr. Barth A. Green
As I reflect on this year, I am so proud to share with you the incredible progress that has occurred thanks to your dedication and support. Project Medishare’s programs have expanded to serve more people and employ more Haitians than ever before. We now serve more than 180,000 people annually around the country, and operate the country’s only critical care, trauma and rehabilitation hospital, which houses the only Newborn and Pediatric Intensive Care Units for premature infants and sick children, and the only Intensive Care Unit in the country with ventilators for critically ill adults. We are building capacity in the healthcare sector by training hundreds of Haitian doctors, nurses and allied health professionals using our “train the trainers” model. Project Medishare continues to run multiple rural community health clinics, a brand new maternal health center, a cholera treatment center, and the nation’s most advanced prosthetics facility. Another exciting accomplishment is that, in collaboration with our partners, we trained and now employ the first-ever emergency response EMT/paramedic team.
Despite of all of these advances, dirty water and malnutrition remain the leading causes of death for children in Haiti. In order to address these problems, we are building clean water wells, distributing aquatablets, opening a new factory to produce Akamil (a mix of locally grown crops infused with micronutrients) to put an end to starvation, while creating jobs and economic opportunity for local farmers, and the list goes on. As we approach the two-year anniversary of the devastating earthquake of January 12th, 2010, Project Medishare needs your help NOW more than EVER to sustain these groundbreaking programs. The holiday season is a special time for giving, and this year, why not give the gift of hope and life through Project Medishare? With just a few clicks, you can support these lifesaving programs in honor of your friends, family, colleagues, and loved ones. Giving selflessly to those less fortunate during the holidays is the most meaningful and gratifying gift you could give.

At the School Based Health Center, all of the children get check-ups with pediatricians, vitamins, vaccinations, and health education to teach them important prevention methods.
