Our mission is to strengthen the foundations of progress in Haitian communities, empowering them for long-lasting change.
WHAT WE DO
WHERE WE GO
Light from Light partners with the Lespwa Timoun Clinic which means “Hope for Children.” Light from Light was instrumental in the purchase of land in the Crois-des-Bouquets area just outside of Port-auPrince and helped build a permanent home for Lespwa Timoun that opened in 2014. Lespwa Timoun is open 5 days per week. The clinic served over 32,000 Haitian children in its first 13 years with 1,000 children in the nutrition program monthly now.
Carmel and the clinic staff also host nutrition clinics in 6 different remote villages. The clinic treats an average of 1,000 medical patients each month with General Medicine, Pediatric, Obstetrics, and Gynecology services available. The clinic offers laboratory, ultrasound, EKG, vaccination and pharmacy services on site. Lespwa Timoun also offers a demonstration garden where Haitian parents can learn to grow crops necessary to better feed their children.
