A think tank formed by Haitian professionals after the earthquake with members throughout the Diaspora as well as inside the motherland, called GRAHN (www.grahn-monde.org) is taking on an ambitious endeavor: La Cité du Savoir near Milot, more precisely Génipailler which will be a planned community, a college town as well as an incubation center…like a mini Silicon Valley. It has partnered with AMHE to create within the Cité du Savoir, a health center (www.pigran.org the website for the project).
It is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be part of something socially worthy.
Needless to say, we will need funds to get the health center started. We want to raise at least $400,000 for construction and operating funds initially. We would like this to be a gift to our nation of birth so that generations in the future will assess it as a well thought-out undertaking. We also intend to offer services that address acute and chronic needs of the population at large and the establishment of Centers of Excellence, such as an Eye Center that will handle cataract surgery at a reasonable cost, glaucoma treatment and a Mental Health Center among others.
We are requesting your participation and support that can take any combination of the following:
• Financial contribution ranging from a patron to have a part of the project named after the self to a modicum sum that your purse can afford or anything in between.
• In-kind contribution. Several of us have already started to. Our ophthalmologist has already pledged equipment worth of $200,000 to be installed. Other members will donate lab equipment, computers, etc.
Bear in mind that any contribution is tax-deductibe because It will go to AMHE Foundation, a 501C(3) entity.
Please go to the above Pigran website and click on the icon AMHE-GRAHN to donate.
With operating expenses projected at 10%, 90% of contributions will go toward the project.

Sickle Cell Clinic Project in Léogane, Haiti
The Association of Haitian Physicians Abroad (AMHE) has launched its first crowdfunding project to build a Sickle Cell Clinic in Léogane, Haiti by 2016. We believe that giving health is building wealth. In this way, the people affected by sickle cell can hope to live healthier lives and overcome the throes of poverty. (More)
