In October 2014 NOVA Hope for Haiti opened a brand new facility in Cavaillon, Haiti. The facility has two floors – the ground floor houses our medical clinic which includes four exam rooms, a laboratory for testing and a fully stocked pharmacy. Our permanent staff in Haiti provides medical care year round. In addition, our US volunteer medical missionaries utilize this clinic when they augment the care our staff provides. The facility is clean, modern, well furnished and has running water and electricity supplied by solar power and a back-up generator if needed.
The second floor of the building was built to provide housing for visiting missionaries traveling to Haiti.
NOVA uses the facility to host our own volunteers during our bi-annual medical as well as our non-medical oversight missions. In 2015, we opened our residence to our first non-NOVA missionary group who was providing educational services in our area of Haiti. NOVA’s goal is to provide foreign volunteers a facility that is safe and comfortable that provides first world amenities. As a result, people who take the time, effort and expense of helping our neighbors in Haiti have a place to relax and be refreshed when they are done with their work each day.
NOVA’s Volunteer Residence has:
Four bedrooms each with twin beds and a ceiling fan
Four full bathrooms
A large living room / dining room with two large ceiling fans and a full-size futon bed
A covered front porch for relaxing
A full equipped kitchen with bottled water and ice-maker
24 hour / day security
NOVA is able to provide visitors with towels and linens, potable water and delicious home-cooked Haitian meals to our guests. The residence can comfortably host up to 12 people.
If your group is interested in more information about staying at NOVA’s volunteer residence, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The residence is available only to verified volunteer groups doing missionary work in Haiti.
