This beautiful, though isolated, fishing village in the far northwest region of Haiti has requested HR&DC assistance in transitioning their town into one of the five new cities HR&DC proposed in its original vision for Haiti. The community has many priceless assets and its residents have adopted our CEO, Jim Lange, as one of their own. Many projects are underway in Mole and several others are in the early stages of discussion. Here are several current projects in Mole-St. Nicholas:
Currently, an organization of US-based doctors is providing the only neurology and neurosurgical services available in Haiti. As these services are provided on a part-time basis, Haiti is left with no in-country support for brain injuries and illnesses for much of the year. This is a major healthcare capacity shortfall, and there has been no plan to address filling the capacity gap. HR&DC has proposed a program to the doctors, Haiti’s major medical school, and other of Haiti’s key stakeholders to oversee and manage the establishment of a new neurological center and the programs necessary to add this capacity to Haiti’s healthcare system.
