People For Haiti
People for Haiti Friends, Family & Supporters
After 10 years of People for Haiti devotedly serving medical needs in Haiti, the unfortunate time has come for us to close our cherished organization. Our dedication and passion for serving in Haiti made this a very difficult decision. As most of you know, it has been a couple years since a PFH medical team has been able to travel to Haiti due to safety concerns resulting from increased civil unrest and our ongoing concern is compounding due to COVID-19. We know cannot bring a team to Haiti for the foreseeable future, so as much as it pain us, we know the time has come to turn over our work in Haiti to soon to be Haitian medical doctors, Roosvelt and Geraldine. Thanks to your donations, PFH sponsored their medical school education in Haiti and we are ecstatic to announce that they both will soon complete their training. We are incredibly proud of Roosvelt and Geraldine and we know they will both carry on our mission of providing medical care in Haiti.
We sincerely thank PFH’s founding members, Leo, Guiga and Robert for their vision and passion that impacted thousands in Haiti. We thank Papa Mike and Mama Bonnie for their tireless work in Haiti and for always welcoming us back to our home in Haiti at CBCH. We thank our missionaries who trusted in us, traveled to Haiti with us and made a difference in the lives of hundreds each trip. We thank Tom Launder for maintaining our PFH website that helped spread the word about needs in Haiti and brought countless resources and missionaries to our team. We thank all of our PFH Supporters like Jerry & Barb Graham who provided financial support and supplies that were crucial to our mission trips. And we thank our PFH Family of translators, security and everyone else in Haiti who supported our mission and served by our side for so many years. We truly owe a heartfelt thank you to so many people and though we can’t possibly name everyone, please know we are forever appreciative of the many ways you supported our humanitarian work.
Though PFH is closing its doors, our individual support for Haiti can continue through our friends at trusted partner organizations. We encourage you to continue supporting these U.S. based 501(c)(3) organizations near and dear to us that we worked closely with in Haiti:
Cabaret Haiti Mission (supports CBCH children’s home and schools)
Executive Director: Mike Snider
T.H.E. Mission Haiti (provides educational scholarships in Haiti)
Executive Director: Charity CFO: Christa
We cannot thank you enough for all of your support through the years! Our collective efforts resulted in 34 mission trips and over 50,000 patients receiving free medical care. We continue to receive messages from Haiti thanking us for PFH’s support and telling us how the medical care and educational sponsorships changed lives. Not only were lives in Haiti changed, but we know each of you that traveled with us are forever changed and your hearts are committed to serving others. It was truly our honor to serve by your side and we hope to serve with you again one day. You are, and always will be, beloved PFH Family!
With Utmost Appreciation,
Tammy, Christine & Lonnie
PFH Board of Directors
