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.
Health, Partnership and Community
This year, we wish to emphasize those core values that characterize Lamp for Haiti’s approach to work in Haiti; the values that are highlighted in our tagline: Health, Partnership, and Community. Each month we will publish a reflection on one of these three themes. The situation in Haiti is difficult, now. Our guiding principles allow us to keep a clear eye on our mission and that hope we have for a better future.
