OSAPO Clinic

In the ten years of our existence, more than 151,200 people have been treated at the clinic and received appropriate medication, and 1,920 operations have been conducted. Of these 151,200 consultations, 85% were women and children. More than 1,600 children aged 0 to 5 years have been treated, restored to good health, and received nutritional supplements.

The original hospital is shown... construction on the 2nd floor is underway.

Education

Currently, the majority of Haitians lack access to quality education; a prerequisite for sustained social and economic development. Despite improvements in enrollment and the commitment of the Haitian government to strengthening public education, challenges in funding, teacher training, and access remain widespread. These issues put a generation of Haitian youth at risk of lacking the knowledge and basic skills necessary to succeed in the labor force.

Haiti currently has 15,200 primary schools, of which 90% are non-public and managed by communities, religious organizations or NGOs. The enrollment rate for primary school is 88%. Secondary schools enroll 20% of eligible-age children.

OSAPO also offers med students from various colleges to experience Social Global Medicine in Haiti.

Micro-Credit Program

Positive outcomes with the first 15 households have led us to increase the loan per woman to $250 in the next phase of the program. The women participating have been empowered to take care of the needs of their family such as food, health care, and school fees. The long wait-list for participation in this program is a testimony to the success of the program, which we would like to expand in the years to come.

Food Security and Safety

In October 2016, Hurricane Matthew, a catastrophe of a magnitude never previously experienced, hit Haiti. The three regions most affected were Grand-Anse, Sud, and Nippes.

Thanks to the help of our supporters, OSAPO was able to assist affected families in the south for a month:

  • More than 10,000 tarps were distributed to replace missing roofs.
  • More than 5,000 persons were treated and received medication.
  • 3,800 food kits were distributed to affected families.
