Welcome To Lamp For Haiti
A Powerful Force For Health And A Beacon Of Hope In The Community We Serve
Who We Are
We are a nonprofit, nonsectarian, apolitical organization dedicated to providing health care and humanitarian aid to improve the lives of some of the most marginalized people in Haiti, among the poorest in the Western Hemisphere.
We deliver quality medical care to the community of Cité Soleil, a slum on the outskirts of Port-au- Prince. Our committed staff has weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, civil unrest, and political turmoil to provide life-saving medical care to more than 15,000 patients a year.
Many Haitians live on 50 cents a day and can only dream of regular visits to the doctor, leaving many to suffer and die from preventable and treatable diseases. Lamp founder, Dr. James Morgan, knew that a brighter future and tremendous human potential could be unlocked with improved health.
The cornerstone theme we are embracing this year at Lamp for Haiti.
We appreciate everyone who has generously supported our 2022 Spring Appeal helping to bring back to pre-pandemic levels of service the Women's Health Program!
We have not, however, reached our goal! We are therefore extending our campaign by two weeks. PLEASE GIVE NOW so that we can reach our goal of $50,000 making it possible for Lamp to once again hire a full time OB-GYN to lead the program, and to expand the full range of services.
The Women's Health Program is central to who we are! In Cite Soleil, 70% of mothers give birth at home. Providing a full slate of maternal services - prenatal check-ups, prenatal vitamins, full laboratory work-up, ultrasound, fetal doppler, hygiene kits, well baby visits, and health education, is critical.
This means, too, that the overall number of patients seen by the Lamp for Haiti Health Center will increase by 50%!
