Haiti Needs You is the outreach arm of Instruments of Health, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. We provide:
The average income of 96% of Haitian families is only $1 per day, all of which is spent on food; typically, one daily meal consisting of only a small serving of rice. Often Haitian families must make a horrible choice: feed their family or take a dying child to an expensive doctor. Because of this social injustice, many Haitian children and adults die needlessly while others suffer in pain their entire lives.
Medical and Dental Services
We recruit medical and dental professionals and volunteers to travel to Haiti and share their skills, healing the poorest of the poor.
Our non-medical volunteers provide skills to improve everyday lives. We have built tarp roofs for those living in corn stalk homes to shelter Haitian families during the rainy season. We have built latrines to provide a cleaner, healthier environment by eliminating the spread of fecal bacteria to drinking water.
We have worked and interacted with Haitian school children, conducted in-home water tests, and delivered water filters. We have organized college and high school mission groups that deliver their group’s unique services.

We are always in need of medical professionals, including doctors, nurses, and physician assistants, dental professionals such as dentists and hygienists, and general volunteers willing to lend a helping hand. Go to our Get Involved page to sign up.
