Remembering Paul Farmer

 

Those of us working in global health who were fortunate enough to cross paths with Paul were blessed.  Paul was an icon that brought the work that we care so much about to the world stage.  We will miss him but will continue to be inspired by his legacy.

 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends and colleagues who are grieving this tragic and unanticipated loss.

 

To another 25 Years!

Our 2018 Gala and Silent Auction was a huge success!  Thank you for spending your evening with us as we celebrated the last 25 years of Family Health Ministries and looked towards the future for women and children in Haiti.  We had a record number of supporters this year, with over 300 of you participating either in person, online, or by sponsoring the event and giving auction items.  Together, we raised over $62,000 to support the Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Health Center in Tom Gato, enough to fully fund clinic operations for one year.

Meet Soinie. To say Soinie is an inspiration is an understatement! This determined lady is breaking the mold in order to build a better life for her family and the community of Fondwa. Soinie (pronounced swah-nee) has joined our construction crew to build FHM’s Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Health Center.
Many Haitian dishes are not complete without “pikliz”. I’m a Southern gal and cole slaw is a common side dish where I’m from. Well, pikliz looks similar to cole slaw but less creamy and a lot more spicy! Haitians use it as a relish to spice up their dish, takingRead More
