Missions in Haiti
Ochsner's Haiti Relief Fund has allowed the Ochsner family to continue its support of the recovery and relief efforts in Haiti with a focus more on self-reliance and resiliency rather than dependency.
The University of Queensland and Ochsner Clinical School sends selected 4th year UQ students on an annual trip to Haiti to work with a local clinic. This is the mission seen through their eyes.LEARN MORE
The integration of Ochsner's academic mission with its relief efforts in Haiti with the support of Dr. Seoane, Mike Hulefeld, Warner Thomas and many others has been a key innovation which has led to the long term sustainability of our efforts in Haiti.
Your donation and continued support will allow us to continue the great work and progress that is currently being made in collaboration with our partners on the ground in Haiti to provide health, education and humanitarian assistance to those in greatest need.
