Christmas Gift of Public Health

Author: Diana Green


This holiday season, the Notre Dame Haiti Program is again offering the opportunity to Give the Gift of Public Health in Haiti. Click to learn more.  


If you are looking for the perfect git for someone who has everything, please consider making a donation to the Haiti Program in honor of a dear friend or family member.  

Local artists in Leogane have created drawings of Christmas scenes. The Program will send your friend a card, like the one pictured, with a Christmas blessing as well as a note detailing what is being done in their honor. Recipients will not be added to the mailing list. For alumni, this gift will count towards yearly contributions to the University. Donors may choose to sponsor one of the specific projects listed, or they may designate general patient support. 

  • A gift of $25 will provide lymphedema care for one month for ten people. 
  • A gift of $50 will provide Mass Drug Administration for 100 people.
  • A gift of $100 will provide 800 one pound bags of medicated salt to help a local vendor start a business.
  • A gift of $500 will provide a life-changing hydrocele surgery, enabling the patient to support his family once again.

All requests for cards must be postmarked by December 12th, so that the Program elves have time to process gifts in time for the holiday.
