Our mission is to improve the health of the people living in the greater Petite Rivière de l'Artibonite region of Haiti.
On January 12, 2010, Haiti was hit with a 7.0 magnitude earthquake that devastated the Caribbean country. Detailed reports of just how severe the destruction was motivated a group of doctors & nurses from North Country, NY to go to the people of Haiti and help as best they could. Under the sponsorship of New Hope Baptist Church in Watertown, New York the team traveled to Haiti and set up desperately needed health clinics. During that week, the team cared for 2,643 people.
The work that was accomplished and the destruction that was witnessed left it’s mark on each and every member of the team. It was decided to form a nonprofit organization to continue serving the people of Haiti. Northeast Hope for Haiti is an all volunteer team made up of doctors, pastors, deacons, nurses, construction workers, homemakers, etc. Through the efforts of Dr. Walter Dodard, a native of Haiti, we have a permanent base of operations in the village of L’Artibonite.
