Equipment and Supplies

As a physical medicine and rehabilitation institute, Healing Hands for Haiti is constantly cycling medical, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, educational equipment, and related supplies in our clinic and prosthetic and orthotic (P&O) workshop in Port au Prince, Haiti. We need, appreciate, and will responsibly deploy any suitable donations in-kind such as:

Wheelchairs and walkers, prosthetic limbs and components, orthotic supplies, plastic for prosthetic fabrication, surgical instruments, vitamins and OTC products, specific prescription products, sports equipment, air miles for team travel, funds for container shipment, and school and office supplies.


Healing Hands for Haiti has worked with the disabled since 1998 and, in that time, we have provided essential healthcare resources to Haiti. In addition to physical and occupational therapy and clinical services, Healing Hands provides training and education programs in the fabrication and fitting of wheelchairs, prosthetics and orthotics, thanks in part to the support of our many sponsors and large contributors.

Volunteer Guest House

We said goodbye to our original guesthouse located in the Bourdon area of Port au Prince after 14 years of serving our volunteers and guests. Our existing guesthouse was built in 2013, and continues to provide safe, secure and comfortable accommodations for up to 24 guests. It is located in the peaceful Valee de Bourdon next to our clinic.

volunteer & Faqs

Healing Hands for Haiti Foundation provides physical rehabilitation medicine to the most vulnerable population; those with a physical disability. 

Our clinic in Port au Prince offers physical and occupational therapy and medical care to adults and children. We have a prosthetic and orthotic (P&O) workshop, and we provide valuable education to Haitians in P&O tech training. We also offered physical therapy aide and rehabilitation nursing education.”

Whether it is working in Klinik Kay Kapab, working and providing therapeutic play with children in an orphanage, or providing educational opportunities for healthcare workers in the community, volunteers will have the opportunity to learn as well as teach, to receive as well as give, and to experience the wonders of a different culture and heritage.

To share your unique and valuable skills and broaden your horizon, request a copy of our Volunteers Guide.

Please take the time to complete our application. You will need to attach a current CV and two referral letters (one personal and one professional) to your application. Upon receipt of your application, you will receive a questionnaire to complete.

Rehabilitation specialists (PM&R physicians, rehabilitation nurses, physical, occupational and speech therapists, certified prosthetists and orthotists) 

We have opportunities for non-rehab medical and non-medical volunteers. These volunteers can fulfill a wide variety in any number of areas including assisting in our Care Giver and Orphanage service and training programs, logistics, training for trades for re-entry to work, and other support roles.

HHH has a history of ‘teams’ coming to Haiti for many years before the 2010 earthquake hit the country.  Many of those teams continue to come.  However, since the earthquake, we have had many individual volunteers come for 2-4 weeks or longer. 

It depends on your skill set.  Rehabilitation specialists:   Since our clinic is rehab based and we have Haitian staff, you may be asked to provide continuing medical education classes (CME), lectures and participate in seminars that may be 1 or 2 days.  In some cases, you may work side by side with the staff, treating patients. 

For general medical teams, participating in lectures or seminars and/or working in orphanages may be the main focus of your visit.  Occasionally, we get requests for volunteers in other areas.   Again, this will depend on your profession.  Support or lay team members may be tasked with helping in an orphanage, doing minor repair or building, painting, cleaning, or other identified and requested activities. 

We have a new guesthouse (completion date set for October 2013).  Until its completion, we are using a hotel that we have found to be of reasonable cost, clean, secure and quiet. 

Volunteers can come for 1- 4 weeks or longer.  Be aware that 1 week visits are very short and offer the volunteer limited time to integrate into our clinic, or allow time to see the city outside of the compound. Many volunteers have expressed appreciation of being able to stay at least 2 weeks.  Having a weekend between work weeks allows time for a more memorable experience. 

For volunteers seeking to commit to 4 weeks or longer, we will seek approval to offer a reduced cost to your visit.  (Please ask for more information on this). 

This will depend on several factors.  HHH has set prices for in-country. This includes your airport transfers, room and board (2 meals per day), and daily transportation. 

This does not include round trip airfare from your departure city, any hotel or meals required prior to arriving or departing from Port au Prince.  You will be asked to purchase medical evacuation insurance, have a valid passport, and receive any medications or immunizations you may need. 

HHH has a volunteer coordinator that will work with you through the entire planning process, provide additional information, and arrange in-country transportation.
