Our Mission and Vision

The Lamp for Haiti works with and for the people of Haiti to improve the lives of some of the most marginalized persons in Haitian society.

Our primary goal is to reduce mortality and morbidity, both to save lives directly, and to empower the residents to improve, for themselves, all other aspects of their lives. Our secondary goal is to build a durable local institution that becomes an anchor and catalyst for local community development. Finally, over time the Lamp intends to replicate this model of community-centered health care in other marginalized communities across Haiti.

Mission Statement

Through the provision of quality cost-effective medical care and humanitarian assistance, the Lamp for Haiti works with and for the people of Haiti to improve the lives of some of the most marginalized persons in Haitian society. Our work is done in collaboration with local residents, other Haitian professionals, and both governmental and non-governmental partners. 

Lamp for Haiti is non-profit, non-sectarian and apolitical. 

Transparency to the community, patients, donors, and governing bodies is a sine qua non.

Vision Statement

Lamp for Haiti envisions a time when the communities we serve will meet their basic health and humanitarian needs on a self- sustaining basis. 

To that end, Lamp for Haiti develops and empowers local professional and nonprofessional staff to carry out its mission, aligns its activities with the needs and interests of the local community, and cooperates in mutually beneficial and sustainable ways with Haiti’s broader network of health organizations.
