You Can Help St. Damien Pediatric Hospital Provide Lifesaving Care to Mothers, Infants, and Children

Global attention is being drawn to the deep-rooted inequity that still exists for health care access and efficacy around the world. The consequences of this tremendous inequity, especially among children, are morally unjustifiable. In Haiti, where nearly 1 in every 16 Haitian children dies before their fifth birthday, NPH’s St. Damien Pediatric Hospital is a lifesaver.

This stronghold of hope and healing is the nation’s premier pediatric and high-risk maternity hospital, and the only one that provides specialized pediatric cancer care. On average, St. Damien staff provide about 50,000 medical services a year to children, expectant mothers, and newborn infants.

But these nurses and doctors are responding to a need that they cannot answer without support.

An escalation in gang activity and civil unrest is hurling the nation into turmoil. In this country of 11.5 million people, the mortality rate for children diagnosed with cancer is a staggering 54% every year, and HIV/AIDS has left over 50,000 Haitian children as vulnerable orphans. Behind these grim statistics are mothers, fathers, and families who want nothing but a brighter future for their children. The problem they face is that, aside from St. Damien, many options are inaccessible, unaffordable, or all but shut down due to gang violence and blockades.

St. Damien acts as a lifeline for countless women and children in desperate need, and funding relies 100% on the compassion and generosity of people like you. Without you, thousands are at risk of suffering or premature death.

St. Damien is one of the few hospitals that offer specialized oncology, cardiac, HIV/AIDs, sickle cell disease, epilepsy, renal, dental, and emergency care.
