On the morning of Saturday, August 14, 2021, a 7.2 earthquake struck Southwest Haiti where NOVA’s medical clinics are located. Unlike the 2010 earthquake which was centered near Port au Prince and did not significantly affect our community, yesterday’s earthquake was a direct hit Thankfully, our staff and their families are safe, but several of them have lost their homes. NOVA’s main clinic and headquarters suffered severe damage and is currently uninhabitable and unusable as a clinic, but due to the high quality of the construction, the building did not collapse and nobody was harmed.
NOVA has been providing medical care in Haiti for almost 20 years through the country’s many catastrophes, including hurricanes, political unrest, COVID 19, and extreme poverty. While this is the biggest challenge NOVA has faced to date, we will get through this with the commitment and support of our volunteers and everyone who has helped NOVA grow to be able to provide medical care to a community of 50,000 people in Cavaillon Haiti.
We are asking all our friends and supports to help us at this critical time.
Any amount of financial support is greatly appreciated. Your donation will go directly to:
- help rebuild NOVA’s clinic.
- purchase medications and supplies to help care for those in need.
- help aid the members of NOVA’s staff and members of our community who have lost their homes.
- continue to provide medical care to the people of Cavaillon, Boileau, and the surrounding communities.
Thank you for your past and continued support of NOVA Hope for Haiti.
