Join Us

Dear Friends,

We've created this page so that we can tell you about all of the wonderful things we do in Haiti and beyond. We are the Friends of H
ôpital Albert Schweitzer Haiti. We are a non-profit 501(c)3 organization based in Pittsburgh, which designs and implements projects in collaboration with HAS' mission of improving the health and well-being of the people in Haiti's Artibonite Valley. We sponsor a rehabilitation training program to help Haitians heal better. We reforest mountains so that farms and their crops can grow. We support Haitian artists to celebrate the vibrance of this culture we have come to love.

We hope that, in time, we can build up direct, meaningful and dynamic relations between what we do in our little offices in Pittsburgh, and the big, beautiful world of Haiti and our own H
ôpital Albert Schweitzer. This is the first step: talking to you, straight from Haiti.

Thank you for joining us on this great adventure, the fulfillment of a vision that dawned over half a century ago in a remote valley in Haiti. Read, learn, and communicate with the people whose daily efforts are what make us who we are.



  1. What a lovely site! It provides a view of Haiti which is not accessible through normal media channels.
