Three Strands Awareness Fund

$2,770 of $1,500 goal

Raised by 35 people in 8 months
Created March 24, 2018
Last spring break, I went on a medical mission trip to Cap-Haïtien, Haiti with the non-profit organization, Three Strands.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to go into the medical field. Both of my parents, being physicians, have shown me what it truly means to heal and give. When they went to the Central African Republic with Three Strands in 2012, I knew that a trip of that magnitude was something I wanted to participate in as well. The people of Haiti truly inspired me to pursue medicine and philanthropy. With this fund, I want to give back to the people of Haiti who touched my heart throughout this trip, and hopefully be able to heal some of their pain along the way.

This fund, and it's attached promotional video, are the outlets I am using to inform and, perhaps, inspire others. Three Strands is a non-profit organization that works to provide accessible and affordable health care to those who need it. Their drive and passion to care for others comes from the organization being faith-based. Each patient is treated with the appropriate medical care, as well as being treated spiritually through prayer. Haiti has been said to be one of the poorest countries in the world. The World Health Organization has shown that the average Haitian lives off of approximately $2.00 per day. Therefore, Three Strands decided to establish a medical clinic, where those who need medical care, can receive it despite how much money they have. 

The money donated to this fund will be used to purchase the needed medication to restock the Three Strands Cap-Haïtien clinic. The clinic functions year-round and sees many patients who need medication to combat things such as, hypertension, UTIs, STDs, gastroesophageal reflux disease, ear infections, and diabetes. The pharmacy at the clinic, though it is small, has medications that many men, women, and children of Cap-Haïtien desperately need. 

Any and all donations are appreciated and if you would like to get involved directly, you may also visit www.three-strands.org.

Thank you all for donating towards my capstone! With these funds, I was able to purchase 185 prescription medications, which totaled around $2,300. The money that was not spent on the medication was donated directly to Three Strands for their Haiti medical mission work. These medications will travel with the team in April to restock the clinic and will be able to to heal children with malaria, give mothers prenatal vitamins, take away pain from sick teens, and possibly save lives of elderly patients with hypertension. Thank you again for helping me make an lasting impact and exceeding my goals through this project!
