On January 7, 2016, the Haiti Rehab Project proudly sponsored the opening of the Rehab Clinic of Artibonite in Gonaives, Haiti. Accomplishing this important goal – providing an area of 300,000 people access to rehabilitation services – was a culmination of many months of preparation and fundraising. Imagine so many individuals who have suffered a stroke, spinal cord injury, or car accident or those caring for a child with special needs that do not have the availability of crucial rehabilitative services. Now, those who desperately need these services around Gonaives, will not have to travel hours to Port-au-Prince to receive this care.
This clinic also serves as a central hub for our Community Based Rehab Program for the surrounding mountainous villages. We can reach even more people in the remote communities with this program. Our teams participate in mobile medical and rehab clinics in areas that have little or no access to healthcare.
