All donations benefit Promoting Health in Haiti, a not-for-profit with 501(c)(3) tax exempt status, formed by nursing faculty at Hunter-Bellevue School of Nursing at Hunter College, to help improve the conditions of nursing school in Haiti. Donations may be made online through Paypal or by mail via check and are tax deductible. Consider a donation in memory of, or in honor of a special nurse in your life. Thank you for joining our mission to improve nursing education in Haiti.
Funds will be used for many purposes, including:
- Run a Family Nurse Practitioner program, to educate nurses in primary care. This is the first such program in Haiti. This education will enable local, rural communities in Haiti to have a qualified primary care provider. These nurses will reduce rates of infant, child and maternal mortality, and provide care to the elderly and those with acute and chronic diseases.
- Sponsor trips to Haiti for Haitian American nurses, to consult with the Ministry of Health and the Chancellor of the University of Haiti, to create a baccalaureate and a masters nursing program in Haiti. This will be the first public BS program for nurses in Haiti.
- Provide educational technology for the School of Nursing in Port-au-Prince. The school collapsed during the 2010 earthquake, destroying everything inside.
- Sponsor nursing conferences in Haiti and the US.
