Give a Life!

Give another human being the chance to have a healthy life.

Right now, someone’s loved ones are praying their child, parent, or grandparent won’t die or be disabled because of a lack of medical care. In Haiti, without a local hospital with skilled medical professionals, people die, many, many people die. Children die, in shameful, horrifying numbers.

Parents die leaving their children to take their chances living on the streets. In the prime of their life, women and men become benched by disabling injuries or diseases that went untreated. People go blind for want of preventative care or simple treatments.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

Since 1986, Hôpital Sacré Coeur has served the 975,000 people of Northern Haiti with dedication, skill and love. Through full-service medical and public health education outreach programs, over 100,000 people a year receive the treatment and education necessary to stay alive and live productive, hopeful lives.

Mothers birth their children in safe environments. Breadwinners receive the medications they need so they can continue feeding their families. Children have a shot at a healthy future.

Start a new giving tradition. Give a Life!

Sponsor the work of a medical professional at Hôpital Sacré Coeur, be an Angel of the Day, or step up to be the Champion of the Month. Give someone, who just happened to be born in a low resource country, the chance to have a life.

Giving doesn’t get more meaningful than that.


SPONSOR A PHYSICIAN FOR ONE YEAR

Without skilled medical care, people in Haiti suffer needlessly, face life with physical compromise and often die.

With your gift you ensure that a competent physician works full time for a year at Hôpital Sacré Coeur delivering life-saving medical care to the poor. Whether in the field of pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, ophthalmology, cardiology, orthopedics, emergency medicine or internal medicine, the M.D. who benefits from your generosity will serve an average of 150 patients a week. That’s an average of 150 people a week in need of medical treatment. 150 people each week who have a chance to have a healthy life.

Your gift provides employment for a highly trained professional and gives Haitian men, women and children the chance to regain the physical wellness needed to put food on their family table, pursue an education, and give back to their communities. The cycle of needless suffering and death can be abated through your meaningful and impactful giving.

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed in the clinical area.

(We cannot accept Physician Sponsorship donations online because PayPal limits single transactions to $10,000 or below.)


SPONSOR A PHARMACIST FOR ONE YEAR

With the proper medication, many suffering people feel blessed relief and a vast improvement in their health. In any hospital, medical personnel and patients look to the pharmacist for procurement, management and appropriate distribution of medications and medical supplies. Hôpital Sacré Coeur’s team of pharmacists fills over 154,000 prescriptions each year. That’s a lot of relief.

Your generous gift provides full time employment for one year for a trained pharmacist at Hôpital Sacré Coeur’s busy pharmacy. In turn, the bottle of pills, operating room gases, and wound care dressings sent into action, by your sponsored pharmacist, brings heavenly relief and more hopeful futures for the 6,000 in-patients and over 40,000 out patients who walk through the hospital doors each year.

How meaningful is that? Just ask any person in pain what a pain free life means.

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed in the pharmacy.

SPONSOR A DENTIST FOR ONE YEAR

The teensiest of cavities can fell the burliest of men from sheer agony. Imagine going through life without a dentist. Unfortunately, in Haiti, dentists are few and far between. Fortunately, Hôpital Sacré Coeur has a rare, full service dental clinic.

Your gracious gift places a qualified dentist in the clinic, full time for a year. Thanks to YOU, children and adults in Northern Haiti don’t have to live with dental pain, broken teeth, abscesses, or debilitating gum disease.

Accident victims, who visit the hospital’s emergency room, have immediate access to dental repairs. People with serious jaw and lower facial disabilities have the option of a more normal life.

Your impactful generosity will place you higher than the tooth fairy in the lives of countless Haitians!

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed in the dental clinic.

SPONSOR A NURSE FOR ONE YEAR

Everyone knows the bulk of day to day patient care lies in the hands of the nurse. And a nurse’s hands are busy! They provide skilled delivery of medications, treatments and wound care. They keep track of vital statistics and make sure any changes receive prompt attention. And, the nurse finds time to offer the words of encouragement, the compassionate listening ears, and the fluff of a pillow or tuck of a sheet that all add up to a higher level of comfort for the patient.

Your kind gift places one nurse at Hôpital Sacré Coeur for one year; a year’s worth of medical skill, caring and comfort for the average of 780 patients and their families a HSC nurse sees in one year.

That’s a lot of nursing back to health and wholeness…all thanks to YOU!

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed in the clinical area.

SPONSOR AN ANCILLARY STAFF MEMBER FOR ONE YEAR

blood-bankHospitals are busy places that require lots of trained professionals to deliver full service patient care.

And that is just the tip of the long list of people who dedicate their working lives to keeping people alive and making people well.

Your significant sponsorship will provide a year’s employment for one of the unsung heroes and heroines of the Hôpital Sacré Coeur who diligently work behind the scenes to keep the hospital running smoothly.

You give the gift of employment and in turn they will devote their attention to doing the best they can to keep Hôpital Sacré Coeur one of Haiti’s best run hospitals!

BE AN ANGEL OF THE DAY AT HÔPITAL SACRÉ COEUR!

A lot happens in the course of a day at Hôpital Sacré Coeur. Patients arrive at 6 am, many having walked 10 miles or more, to get the medical attention that is in regrettably short supply in Haiti. All day long people stream into the hospital; mothers to deliver their babies, patients visiting one of the many clinics, and others in need of emergency care. In one day and under one roof patients consult with the doctors, complete all of their laboratory tests, return to the doctors for results and receive medications from the pharmacy. A day can mean life or death for those who come seeking care.

Over 50,000 people a year visit the hospital campus and nearly 350 full and part time employees work hard to make sure their healthcare needs are met and the patient is treated with the upmost dignity, respect and compassion. The cost per day of keeping the hospital properly staffed to face whatever medical need walks through the door is $3,616.

There is a Haitian proverb that says “Men anpil chay pa lou” – Many hands make the load lighter. With your generous sponsorship of a day (or more), you ensure that Hôpital Sacré Coeur stands ready to change the lives of hundreds of impoverished Haitians for generations to come.

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed in the clinical area.

Angel of the Day Sponsorships can be given as gifts in memory, in honor or to celebrate special days such as birthdays, anniversaries or feast days. Treat a loved one or yourself to this very special gift. Community groups, schools, churches and families may consider fundraising to collectively sponsor a day or more at Hôpital Sacré Coeur.

An acknowledgement card will be sent to the sponsor and recipient. The recipients and sponsors will be remembered in the recitation of the Our Father (“Papa Nou”) by the patients and staff of Hôpital Sacré Coeur.  Sponsors may be publicized in our newsletters, web site and in the CRUDEM annual calendar unless they request otherwise.

BE THE CHAMPION OF THE MONTH AT HÔPITAL SACRÉ COEUR!

Being born in a low resource country is no reason to be sentenced to a life without access to skilled medical care. At Hôpital Sacré Coeur, we are honored to relieve unnecessary suffering and cheat death of a much too early claim on someone’s life. Haitians are a hard working, resourceful, compassionate and resilient people. Every day they teach us how to live in gratitude and how to love one another no matter the circumstances.

Not a week goes by when many of the nearly 350 staff members of Hôpital Sacré Coeur voluntarily work extra hours and go the extra mile to serve the patients and their families. Hôpital Sacré Coeur is not just one of the largest employers in the northern region of Haiti; it is a place where nearly 350 employees live out a vocation and mission to care for their neighbors. To the people of the region, Hôpital Sacré Coeur is a living miracle. As one villager said, “We cannot conceive of Hôpital Sacré Coeur not being open. The thought of it, terrifies us.”

With your extraordinary donation, you ensure that the hospital is fully staffed with dedicated professionals for one month. In turn, thousands of people experience the answer to their prayers and receive the medical care they and their families need to continue their lives and to be a blessing to others.

For less than the cost of a luxury sedan, like the BMW 7 series or a Mercedes S Class, you have the unique honor of staffing an entire hospital for a month and directly impacting the lives of thousands of people. Without a doubt, your generosity will save a life; probably many lives. Talk about significant impact!

A gratitude plaque with your name or the person(s) you are honoring will be placed at the entrance to the hospital.
