welcome to haitian hearts

Dr. John Carroll spends two to four months a year in Haiti, working in the country's clinics and hospitals. Through his general medical work, he identifies patients who need surgery or other medical care not available in Haiti. In 2013, we have brought two patients to the United States. Marie had heart surgery in Naperville and Oniste had a large tumor removed from her forehead in Denver. Woodson, an 8-year-old boy, was accepted for heart surgery in Florida in January 2014.

Haitian Hearts is dedicated to saving the lives of children. We bring children and young adults in desperate need of heart surgery from Haiti, a terribly impoverished country only 600 miles from Florida, to the United States for life-saving medical treatment.

During the past 18 years, Haitian Hearts has brought more than 160 patients to the United States and helped thousands more in Haiti through our general medical work in clinics and hospitals. And for each individual Haitian Hearts has helped, we know countless others have benefited from the improved health of their family member, friend, or neighbor.

Please take a moment to learn about our work and the beautiful children we serve. We’d love you to join us in this life-saving adventure.
