Project #290 | Compassionate Maternal & Infant Healthcare in Haiti
Our Partnership with Heartline Haiti
The Heartline Maternity Center has cared for Haitian women since 2007. Sixteen years ago, when the doors opened to the Port-au-Prince community, there was nothing like it; no other provider was offering holistic care that stretched from the pregnancy test to labor and delivery to postpartum check-ups. It was – and remains – uncharted territory. Over the past two years, things have been harder than ever. The assassination of President Jovenel Moise in 2021 sparked what is effectively a Haitian civil war between the hundreds of gangs that now control Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince. For Haitian women, affordable healthcare has become almost impossible to access – all this in a nation where mothers already faced a 1:94 chance of dying from complications during pregnancy or childbirth.
We’re partnering with Heartline Haiti to provide high-quality medical care and health education to Port-au-Prince women. At the Heartline Maternity Center, women receive weekly prenatal check-ups, delivery care, postpartum and early childhood development classes, coaching on nutrition and breastfeeding, along with homemade meals and a vitamin regimen. Through our partnership, 167 women will receive these core services during the project period, and an additional 417 women will have the opportunity to attend the Maternity Center’s weekly clinics (which include pregnancy tests and ultrasounds) for the broader community.

Thank you for making this possible!
Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
