St. Damien, Pediatric Hospital

Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

  • Plagued by both political instability and natural disasters, most people are unemployed and survive on less than $2 a day.
  • 138,000 children die of preventable diseases each year.
  • 1 out of 4 children is moderately to severely malnourished.
  • The current Cholera epidemic has caused 8,000 deaths.

St. Damien Pediatric Hospital Funded through private contributions to NPH worldwide provides high quality medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti. More than half of all patients are admitted for an infectious disease such as tuberculosis, malaria, and HIV while 25% are admitted for non-infectious diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and kidney infection. Most patients admitted are also malnourished. The outpatient clinic treats 100 children daily, for acute, parasitic, and bacterial infections. In specialized clinics, chronic conditions such as sickle cell anemia, congenital heart diseases (CHD), tuberculosis and cancer are treated for months or years if needed. St. Damien Pediatric Hospital and associated public health programs of NPFS reach over 80,000 children annually.
The number of patients that St Damien has treated has tripled since the devastating 2010 earthquake, an increase of 60,000 children annually. Due to lack of funding, we risk turning away 30,000 children.

You can help save the life of a child.
