In 2008, MediNova NY (formerly known as NOAH NY) was officially created in order to promote a new focus in the manner that medical missions could be conducted in Haiti. After the earthquake of January 2010, MediNova NY maintained a presence in Port-au-Prince for 6 months to cover the tremendous critical support needs. As a result, we decided that our next step would be to increase our presence in the northeast Haiti, an area long neglected for regular medical care. In partnership with the Haitian American Alliance, EDRA, ADFE, Howard University, and HealthFirst, MediNova NY has conducted annual medical missions in the city of Fort Liberte and its surrounding towns with an all volunteer staff. Our medical missions emphasize on education for the local medical students, medical residents, and nursing students. Additionally in the northeast, we provide medical education conferences at the State University of Haiti – Limonade Campus, and offer a free diverse group of health and educational services to men, women and children.
Presently, the northeast area is experiencing economic and industrial growth with the new Caracol Industrial Park (CIP) that has approximately 13,000 employees. With the limited access to quality urgent care, MediNova NY is well positioned to provide such healthcare services to CIP employees and local residents with the construction of its state of the art urgent care center in Caracol. The Caracol healthcare center will provide education, and training sessions to Haitians, and American medical professionals in the various specialties. This is an ambitious but necessary endeavor that will need the ongoing support of our volunteers, corporate partners, and friends like you. With your loyal commitment, we can make a difference in saving Haitian Lives One Person At A Time.
Thank you so much for your past support of our work, and many blessings to you and your family.
