Our Mission is to improve the quality of life of the poor people living in rural Haiti.
Haiti Help Med Plus was founded and initially funded by a dedicated group of Haitian professionals living in the U.S. and in Haiti.
We share a common goal: actively participating in the sustainable socio-economic rebirth of Haiti.Find Out More
With the success of the initial Hospital project, we have expanded our mission to provide the assistance and tools necessary to create a self sustaining community. Our new projects include:
Public Health Promotion
Housing and Sanitation
The Hospital in Paillant completed and inaugurated July 24, 2010.
We are currently completing the addition of a surgical suite, a dental and an ophthalmology clinics.
We will start very soon the construction of a community center and we are making some progress in reviving the coffee production to give the poor farmers a way to earn some income.
As a public health student, my time spent in Haiti helping in the clinic and throughout the community was invaluable. It was extremely inspiring to see Ralph & Ninotte’s selfless passion for empowering the community of Paillant through so many different outlets. Being able to volunteer in an impoverished community left me with a deep sense of gratitude for every opportunity I have been given thus far, as well as motivation to continue helping in any way I can. I look forward to hearing updates on all of the exciting projects Haiti Help Med has implemented and hope I will be able to return to Haiti with this phenomenal group someday soon!

The trip to Paillant was a humbling, inspiring and unforgettable experience. Thank you for your incredible hospitality! You and Ninotte have such tremendous passion and love for the people of Paillant and Haiti, it was a joy to be part of your trip. I can’t stop talking to everyone I know about the people, their needs, and the beauty that is Haiti. Schella Orcel 11/27/09
Dear Ralph- the experience I had during the four days we spent in Haiti will be one that I will never forget. The beauty of the people and the country have left an inspiring impression on my heart, and I look forward to going back some day. Hopefully next year we will see more doctors from the Medical Society make the trip as well. If the stories of the incredible need we encountered don’t impress them, the description of the wonderful meals and hospitality you and Ninotte shared with us certainly will.
I feel fortunate to have shared a very moving experience with a team of such caring and talented people. I wish you all a blessed holiday season, and I hope our paths cross again.. Thomas Kelley, MD 11/28/09
I didn’t know what exactly to expect during the trip, but I can tell you I was very pleased with everything I experienced. The time spent at the clinic and in the small communities surrounding Paillant was rewarding. Max Lallemand 11/25/09
Hi Ralph. I think the story I told about my experience in Haiti has to do with how my spirit was lifted up during our trip. Prior to leaving, I had been doing some soul-searching about the kind of person I would like to be. The longer we stayed involved in our work in Paillant, the more I felt that my spirit was moving in a positive direction. I remembered a novel titled “Heart of Darkness” (this was the basis for the movie Apocalypse Now about the VietNam war). The lead character ventures into the jungles of Africa and becomes progressively more disturbed the deeper he travels into the wilderness. In Haiti, I felt exactly the opposite. The deeper we journeyed into the countryside, the more enlightened I felt that I was becoming. And with each person we helped, my soul was increasingly enriched beyond a level I could have understood before making the trip. In a sense, I was experiencing a “Heart of Light.” It was a chapter of my life that I know will have profound and lasting effects on who I am as a person. Thomas Kelley, MD 4/14/10
