Family Health Ministries has had a relationship with the first BSN Nursing School in Haiti since it opened its doors in Leogane in 2005. Over the years, FHM has provided scholarships, mentored nursing students in research projects, provided clinical sites for nursing education and hired both undergraduate and graduate nursing students to work at the Carmelle Voltaire Women’s Center in the Leogane Commune.

In January of 2023, Dr. David Walmer joined the board of directors for the Haiti Nursing Foundation, which supports to the Leogane nursing school. Recently, Dr. Dave started a local group of friends and colleagues within the FHM community to increase the awareness and support of nursing education and nurses in Haiti.

If you want to participate in this group and spend time with David in his retirement, please send an email to and he will eagerly invite you to join this group.

Here is a video of two of the FSIL nursing students singing about why they love their country.
