Hope & Health in Haiti
Help us bring Hope & Health to Haiti
Phase 1 Goal: $3.5 Million
The La Gonâve Wesleyen Hospital has been operating as the sole hospital on “the forgotten” Haitian island of La Gonâve since its founding. This year, the little hospital was able to deploy two medical teams and resources to the Haitian mainland to provide life-saving care for survivors of the terrible August 14, 2021 earthquake while still continuing operations as usual.
Now, World Hope International is partnering with Build Health International to improve the hospital’s capacity to serve the local – and national – population. The first phase of this campaign will focus on new and improved facilities, support systems, human resources, and vital resources.
With your support, we can continue to build health and hope in Haiti.

This new Oxygen Generation Plant will include a Pressure Swing Absorption (PSA) filling station, allow for low-pressure distribution via a manifold, and oxygen tanks to support NICU and ICU patients.
Since assuming leadership at the hospital with board control, World Hope International (WHI) made a commitment through CCIH’s 30×30 Health Systems Initiative to strengthen access to essential medicines and supplies, financing, health information systems, health workforce, leadership and governance, service delivery, and community services at La Gonâve Wesleyan Hospital in Haiti. This campaign and Phase 1 updates to the hospital’s facilities, infrastructure, and resources will help make it possible.
World Hope International will continue to partner with Build Health International to facilitate and implement the strategic updates to La Gonâve Wesleyen Hospital being financed by this campaign, ensuring that the hospital can continue to build quality health and real hope to the community and the larger island nation.
