HEALTH

Access to health care remains one of the fundamental needs amongst any social category in the world. For 5 years, FLGL has made it its duty to be involved in this field and to continually offer practical and effective health solutions to its many beneficiaries in Haiti. 8 of the most prevalent and preventable diseases in Haiti are diabetes, hypertension, HIV, Cancer, mental illness, glaucoma, malaria and now Corona virus. By educating and screening patients we can provide them with the best tools to eradicate these diseases from an already weak healthcare system. With the current pandemic, it is certain that for the next few years, the needs will increase. The foundation will need even more support from concerned donors as well as its unconditional collaborators to reinforce its actions and develop new projects.
