It is a privilege to introduce you to Healing for Haiti, a New Jersey based 501 (c) (3) organization. This effort was started in February 2009, and has caused considerable excitement among those who have an interest in helping people in the poorest country in our hemisphere. Our Board of Directors are a highly motivated group, largely composed of medical professionals, led by Christopher Godek, MD, FACS, and renowned New Jersey Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon.
Much has been accomplished to date. Five acres have been purchased, which will serve as the site for our new clinic. This property has already been walled off and gated for security purposes. The first floor construction is underway. Our goal to provide healthcare to these dear villagers is in sight. Medical teams have been organized and stand ready to serve as soon as the building phase of this project has been completed.
However, there is much more work to be done. We have used all the monies we had for a "ground breaking" on November 12th of 2012. Although severely under-funded, the Board of Directors felt it important to begin. Every good work must have a beginning, and so it is with us. We are asking people who believe as we do that we are our brother’s keeper, we invite you to partner with us. Would you consider supporting us? We are a totally volunteer Board of Directors, who travel and work at our own expense. Our promise is that every dollar will be spent on behalf of the villagers of Jonc-Dodin, Haiti, securing a healthier future for them and their children by providing them with much needed medical care.
We are proud to announce that the first floor construction is complete.
Currently, we are in the process of fitting out the first floor of the medical clinic.
We have come a long way. Thank you to everyone who has partnered with us. Together, we can make this dream a reality.
If you are excited by what we are doing, would you consider partnering with us?

Meet the staff that makes Healing for Haiti possible. It is our objective to provide quality Medical care to the village of Jonc Dodin, a remote area of Haiti where there is no potable drinking water, no electricity, no sewage plants, and no medical treatment available.
The board has the expertise and capability to ensure that all of the money raised by Healing for Haiti will be used solely to build and equip the medical clinic in Jonc-Dodin. As a volunteer board, the directors reach into their own pockets for travel to Haiti and to cover administrative costs. There are no paid staff positions.
We are looking forward to finishing this health center in order to provide much needed medical care to the peole of Jonc-Dodin, Haiti. Would you consider a one time gift to help us finish the construction of this medical clinic?Villate Castor, President
