Help women in Haiti have access to urgent obstetric care to prevent maternal deaths related to childbirth 
Join us and fight against avoidable and unfair women deaths for every woman's life counts

Lutane is 37 years old, and death has always been part of her sad life. First her mother then her husband.

 

This pregnancy she had to face it alone. 


On June 3rd 2020 she gave birth at Hopital Notre Dame S.A. to a wonderful little boy. With no family member,  no money, her admission to delivery room should have been refused.  But touched by her vibrant vulnerability, our medical staff lavished on her, with love and respect, all the necessary care she needed. 

Lutane's story had a happy ending thanks to the care she was able to receive during her delivery at Hopital Notre Dame S.A. Lutane and her baby are now in good health and both have been discharged from hospital.


On behalf of all the Lutanes who come everyday to our doors without resources, we ask that you would open your heart and donate to Hopital Notre Dame Foundation so we can keep providing Free quality health care to those poor Haitian pregnant women and newborn babies.
Hopital Notre Dame Foundation is in urgent need of financial aid to support hundreds thousands of poor mothers.

With only $200 you can save the life of a pregnant Haitian woman from life threatening complications.
 

Meet Rikensy, born on October 17, 2019 in severe respiratory distress. Despite their low economic means, mom and baby boy have received necessary medical care. Thanks to generous hearts they are both out of danger. 

The reproductive life of Haitian women begins before the age of twenty and ends around 49. It is characterized by repeated pregnancies. The blood loss at each delivery and the short inter-reproductive interval maintain a state of chronic anemia. The level of maternal mortality is estimated at 480 per 100,000 live births, one of the highest in the world. Adolescent girls account for 15% of maternal deaths, and almost 4% result from unsafe abortions. The infant mortality rate 80 ‰ (CIA World Factbook - 2019).

Acute respiratory infections (influenza, pneumonia), malnutrition as well as diarrhea and infectious gastroenteritis are among the leading causes of death in children. Maternal and perinatal risks (congenital anomalies, intrauterine growth retardation, prematurity, fetal death, neonatal death, mortality and severe morbidity in women) in situations of social vulnerability are largely the result of barriers to access taking care.
