Grant Foundation Charity Profile

Hospital Albert Schweitzer (HAS) is a model for health care facilities in developing countries around the world. An integrated rural health system, HAS provides medical care and community health and development programs for more than 300,000 impoverished people in the Artibonite Valley of central Haiti. Visiting medical professionals from North America and abroad work with a permanent Haitian staff of almost 550. Financial support comes from partner organizations and private individuals around the world.

Grant Foundation Volunteer Information

Every volunteer makes a difference. For almost 50 years, volunteers have followed in the footsteps of Larry and Gwen Mellon, helping to save and change the lives of the people of the Artibonite Valley. Volunteers often play an important role for our primarily Haitian staff; your skills and interests may match our current needs at HAS. Physicians volunteering for short terms of one month or more share expertise and gain third-world experience at HAS. The hospital accepts physicians in pediatrics, surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, radiology, neurology, infectious disease, family practice, and internal medicine. HAS provides in-country transportation, and volunteers pay their own airfare.

Individuals with non-clinical expertise often provide technical support, such as in finance, epidemiology, agriculture or computer technology. Volunteers pay their own airfare and a modest room and board fee.

Occasionally, volunteers come as a group with an HAS alumnus as leader, to provide specific technical skills in response to a current administrative need. Work team members pay their own airfare and modest room and board fee.
