Haiti Update: Working in One of the Toughest Places


During these past several months, Haiti has faced its most violent period ever recorded. Among our hardest hit projects has been the Cité Soleil clinic, located in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince. 

Despite the unprecedented violence and instability, Medicines for Humanity (MFH) and our partners have continued to provide essential health services to the most vulnerable populations. There have been some noteworthy outcomes during the past three months.  

Maternal health care has continued with 1,128 antenatal consultations. These services are crucial for the well-being of both mothers and their babies, ensuring safe pregnancies and healthy beginnings for newborns. 

Care for young children also continued. The clinic carried out 3,864 consultations for children under the age of five. These consultations are vital for early detection and treatment of illnesses, which can be life-threatening in such a vulnerable population. 

These numbers are not just statistics; they represent the lives of individuals and families who have been touched by our work. They are proof of the dedication of our team to keep the Cité Soleil clinic operational and the resilience of our partners and their commitment to their community. 

Medicines for Humanity remains committed to continuing its mission in Cité Soleil and beyond, despite the challenging circumstances. We extend our deepest gratitude to our supporters and partners who make this work possible.
