Give another human being the chance to have a healthy life.
Right now, someone’s loved ones are praying that 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, many people die.
Parents die leaving their children to take their chances living on the streets. In the prime of their life, women and men become disabled with 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 a total of over one million patients in 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 live healthy, productive, and hopeful lives.
Mothers birth their children in safe environments. Breadwinners receive the medications they need so they can continue feeding their families. Children have the opportunity for a healthy future.
A core of dedicated, skilled staff secures Hôpital Sacré Coeur’s place as a Haitian success story.
Your sponsorship of Hôpital Sacré Coeur staff will make remarkable success possible.
* You directly impact the delivery of quality healthcare.
* You provide employment which keeps families cared for and together.
* You help improve the quality of — and in many cases save — countless lives.

In turn, the bottle of pills, operating room gases, and wound care dressings sent into action, by your sponsored pharmacist, will bring heavenly relief and more hopeful futures for the more than 6,600 in-patients and more than 62,000 out patients who walk through the hospital doors each year.

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 each 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 each Hôpital Sacré Coeur nurse sees in one year.
That’s a lot of nursing back to health . . . all thanks to YOU!

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 to Hôpital Sacré Coeur seeking care.
More than 100,000 people a year visit the Hôpital Sacré Coeur campus. Over 400 full and part time employees dedicate themselves to making sure their healthcare needs are met and each patient is treated with the upmost dignity, respect and compassion.
Please help keep the hospital properly staffed to face whatever medical needs walk through the door.
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.

SET A BROKEN ARM FOR 4 CHILDREN
Children bump, skid, stumble and crash their way to adulthood and every parent logs a notable amount of time in the emergency room or doctor’s office while the latest misadventure gets patched up. Rarely does the bumbling of children turn unalterably tragic, except in Haiti.
In a nation smothered in poverty, poorly nourished and malnourished children do not have the strong immune systems to speed on the healing process. A general lack of vaccinations such as tetanus turns every cut into a potential death blow. Sources of injury and incapacitating infections lurk on every makeshift play area.
Without skilled medical care and treatment facilities, many a Haitian boy’s and girl’s life has been cut short, simply because they were a typical child. At Hôpital Sacré Coeur, children’s injuries get patched up with excellent medical care. With your loving gift, you cover the costs of a broken arm repair for 4 children.
Thanks to you, tears are dried, and the children are out the door to enjoy the delights of simply being a child. Isn’t that a precious gift!

PROVIDE A DIABETIC CHILD WITH INSULIN FOR ONE YEAR
Each of the more than 120 pediatric patients at Hôpital Sacrè Coeur — aged 5 months to 24 years — lives with Type 1 diabetes, an affliction with no cure. Each youngster must receive multiple insulin injections daily in order to live. There is no wriggle room with Type 1 diabetes: without insulin, the child dies. It is that tragically simple.
Thanks to the immensely successful Pediatric Diabetes Program at Hôpital Sacré Coeur — one of the very few in the nation — these children receive insulin, medical management, group support and training.
With your gift, you will provide one child with a year’s worth of insulin, a glucometer and related supplies, hospital medical care, and even transportation to and from Hôpital Sacrè Coeur. Each child also gets a specially crafted clay pot to keep their insulin climate controlled — a necessity where refrigerators are a luxury few can afford.
Quite simply, you give the gift of life to a child!

PROVIDE PAP SMEARS FOR 75 WOMEN
Cervical cancer is a leading cause of death for Haitian women and the Pap Smear is a critical diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, the test is not widely available to women because of the lack of Pathologists, the experts who interpret the test, and the shortage of laboratories to prepare it. When women are able to get a Pap Smear, it often takes 3 – 6 months to receive the results.
Not so at Hôpital Sacré Coeur! Pap Smears are a routine procedure with results delivered that day.
Imagine the relief a woman feels, knowing the results and having any issues addressed quickly and at the same facility. For Haitian women, this rare reality is miraculous.
Your gift will provide 75 women with the miracle of getting a Pap Smear. The relief you provide to these women is truly priceless!

COVER THE COSTS OF A NORMAL DELIVERY FOR 5 BABIES
Currently 80% of Haitian pregnant women are delivering babies without a skilled birth attendant. These infants often arrive on the dirt floor of a flimsy shack. An unsterile knife or machete cuts the umbilical cord. Without proper equipment and skilled attendants complications are not properly addressed. No wonder Haiti has an exceptionally high infant and maternal mortality rate.
Hôpital Sacré Coeur offers a rare, stark contrast to this way of birth. Excellent obstetricians and maternity medical staff, sterile delivery and operating rooms, a neo-natal intensive care unit, and a robust pediatrics department all work together to keep birthing a health child a healthy, joy filled occasion.
Your compassionate gift covers the cost of a medically safe and dignified birth for 5 precious babies.

COVER THE COSTS OF A CHILD’S EMERGENCY APPENDECTOMY
Many parents know that moment of panic when their child’s presumed stomachache presents as possible appendicitis. Their heart beats faster than the clock. Moments count. A burst appendix spells serious complication and even death. In the US, the child is rushed to the emergency room — in most of Haiti that is a rare option.
Thankfully, Hôpital Sacré Coeur has one of the best ERs in the country, top notch pediatricians and surgeons, and even an ambulance to speed the child to urgent care.
Your generous gift covers the cost of an emergency appendectomy for an extremely sick and scared child.
Without doubt, the parents will be singing your praises for helping their child dodge a potentially fatal bullet.

PROVIDE 75 WOMEN WITH AN OB-GYN VISIT
Women’s health contributes greatly to the cornerstones of family and community vitality. Regular visits to a gynecologist and, for those pregnant, an obstetrician go a long way toward ensuring a woman is healthy. Due to a severe lack of OB-Gyn specialists in Haiti and a lack of personal resources, typically Haitian women seek medical help when their conditions are farther advanced than women in developed countries.
In northern Haiti, women find answers and blessed relief at Hôpital Sacré Coeur. Equipped with a variety of diagnostic tools, caring and competent medical staff and comforting surroundings, women get their questions answered and their health issues addressed in a timely manner. The women, their families and their communities’ benefit from their renewed and sustained good health.
Your exceedingly generous and compassion gift covers the cost of 75 women getting an OB-Gyn visit. That’s 75 extended families and their communities that benefit from a woman in peak shape and condition. Talk about having a significant, positive impact!

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!
