Celebrating our 30th Year

October 1, 2022

Our 2022 Gala and Silent Auction was a huge success!  Thank you for spending your evening with us as we celebrated our 30th year in Haiti 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 $128,000 to support the Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Health Center in Tom Gato, enough to fully fund clinic operations for one year.

We are thankful for all of our many donors and supporters. It is only through our collective work that we can bring change to Haiti. Their gifts have allowed the Annual Gala to grow into a signature event over the last 15 years.  We are also grateful to have had three of our special friends and colleagues from Haiti – Leon Dorleans, Michael Anello and Marjorie Merisier – present at the event to highlight our 30 years of work together.

Family Health Ministries’ programs are funded, in large part, by small gifts from local businesses, faith organizations, and individuals like yourselves.  These grassroots donations mean that you a part of something bigger than one person, one church, or one community.  Together, we are supporting our Haitian partners in their efforts to build and sustain healthy families.

To the next 30 years! May we continue to work towards a better tomorrow for women and children in Haiti.
