Mobile Clinic and Healthcare Update

News SOPUDEP YOUTH
Since the January 2010 earthquake, SOPUDEP has initiated a number of educational, youth, women and girls,  and healthcare programs to help low income people especially those impacted by the earthquake.
These  programs have been made possible thanks to  many friends working in solidarity with SOPUDEP in Haiti
A special mention of Mr Seth Donnelly professor of LAHS , Mrs. Debra Strischartz nurse and parent of LAHS, Professor Meghan,  the students of Los Altos California High School who even after their graduation continue to bring their support in many different ways.  For example raising funds for SOPUDEP students to attend colleges of higher education; assisting with healthcare through providing drugs and  organizing mobile clinics. Others who have helped SOPUDEP are students from universities in the United States such as: UCLA University / Carnegie Mellon, Stanford University / San Francisco United / San Jose State Univ. / Mission High School.
In April 2017 The Rotary Club Barrie of Canada joined together with the group TEAM BROKEN EARTH to join us in Haiti where they spent 5 days providing us with medical care for many people in great need who would otherwise not have access to basic healthcare.   More than 20 people suffering from hernias had surgical interventions at Bernard Mevs Hospital.
In April 2018 again with the intervention of the Rotary Club a group of doctors from Team Broken Earth and 2 dentists operated on a further 15 people.  This is in a country where 90% of the population does not have access to health care
I would like to thank the Rotary Club Barrie for giving us this opportunity to provide healthcare, all the doctors at Team Broken Earth and the five  Haitians who made this possible.  Without you this program could not exist.
Again thank you to all of you !

Sopu-Orphanage Update

Sopu-Orphanage Update

feature projects News Orphanage
SOPU-ORPHANAGE aims at caring for orphaned  children in order to offer them opportunities for a healthy and fulfilling life.  At present there are 10  girls from 4 to 8 years old.  The goal of SOPU-Orphanage is to encourage children to understand that they are actors in today’s and tomorrow’s world, instilling in them essential values ​​so that these children can flourish in a better way.  We also intend to raise their levels of consciousness through education, especially through schooling, to guide them to become autonomous and responsible free women
At this time, Haiti does not have the resources or infrastructure to support and protect children who are economically and emotionally challenged. With this in mind SOPU-ORPHANAGE is committed to contributing to supporting and protecting children so they will be better positioned to reach their individual potential in life.
SOPUDEP, which was started in 2002,  will continue to push the progressive social boundaries in education, health and Haiti’s social realities. It will be above all a quality educational institution, but it will also represent a change in Haiti’s ability to become autonomous and contribute to a free and honest Haiti.

Thank you all partners and donors of SOPUDEP who have made the dream of a new school and training center a reality.    We are extremely grateful to you all.   Below are some of the images from the opening event on April 15th 2017.  The new school and training center will be known as C-SAPH – “Centre Du Savoir Académique et Professionnel D’Haiti.”  Many of our friends and supporters in Haiti and overseas participated in the celebration.  However there were a number of people who could not attend, Sara Lee and Ans Kipping in particular have been a huge support to the new school project and to the SOPUDEP community.  We would also like to acknowledge the work of our sister Sokari Ekine who was also unable to make it to the celebration.
