FOTCOH’s 6,000-square-foot clinic was built in 2000 in Cyvadier, Haiti – a rural village area outside of Jacmel (the closest metropolitan city). Many patients walk for more than a day to receive care at FOTCOH’s clinic.
The Clinic’s main floor consists of exam rooms, a lab, and a pharmacy, as well as restrooms and a laundry room. The second story offers a kitchen, dining room, two bathrooms, four open sleeping rooms, and access to a deck overlooking the sea. The top floor includes a living room, a workspace, three bedrooms, and a bathroom. The clinic is situated on 16 acres.
On the roof of the clinic, a newly-installed solar panel system provides basic power to the building. The roof also has two large water storage tanks which provide potable water to the building and hot water for the kitchen and showers.
Without the FOTCOH clinic, our patients would suffer the same high mortality rate and short life expectancy that is pervasive in Haiti. Learn more about the medical programs that take place in FOTCOH’S clinic.
FOTCOH leads care for Haitians in underserved rural areas in the southern peninsula of Cy-vadier, a region where medical access is greatly lacking. Most medical charities serve more densely-populated areas, including Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince. Haitians travel from rural areas surrounding the region to receive treatment on an ongoing basis.
