SOLUTIONS FOR HAITI DEPENDS ON ...
FBSAHaiti was founded by Eddy Destiné, who believes a solution for Haiti depends on Haitians. Mr. Destiné established FBSAHaiti in the year 2000, with the vision of changing the living conditions of the people in La Plaine, Croix-des-Bouquets (on the northern outskirts of Port-au-Prince).
He created a medical clinic to address both medical and social issues of the people and in 2001, Mr. Destiné gave up his home to convert into a medical clinic. FBSA was officially incorporated in 2001. After much hard work and renovation the doors opened to the public in 2003.
Since then, FBSAHaiti has accumulated a well qualified staff, vaccinated over 25,000 pregnant women and children, and continues to help in any way it can to improve the physical and social lives of the people of La Plaine.
FBSAHaiti is recognized by the Haitian government. This means that FBSAHaiti representation can attend many town meetings and participate in the improvement and decision making for the future of La Plaine. It also means that they can receive vaccinations from the Haitian Health Department, which have been received from UNICEF.
CURRENT PLANS - A NURSING SCHOOL
The next step is a nursing school. Students will receive an excellent education, preparing them to provide nursing skills throughout Haiti. The program started in 2014 with 10 students, taught by highly accredited medical professionals.
Our hope is to continue to grow, so that can improve our service to the people in our neighborhood. Our goal is to grow the nursing school to 80 full time students. And this is a rendering of a hospital we hope one day to build.
