Lespwa Timoun

“Hope for Children”

Little by little the bird builds its nest.

Haitian Proverb

At Light from Light, we know this proverb to be true. Change doesn’t happen overnight, but we believe that the best change will come when communities are served by strong local leaders. 

Lespwa Timoun is a Haitian-certified NGO and a Ministry of Health-Certified Health Provider led by founder Carmel Valdema, RN. 

By empowering Lespwa Timoun’s work, providing them with resources that are not available in Haiti, and facilitating trips that allow US medical experts to serve in Haiti, we help create long-lasting solutions for Haitian communities. 

For more than 30 years, Carmel and the Lespwa Timoun team has earned trust in the surrounding communities, trained more than 215 resident physicians and nurses in Haiti, and provided both health- and education-related services to the most marginalized Haitians.
