UNITE DE LUTTE POUR LA SANTE (ULS; in English “Fighting Unit for Health”) is a local non-profit health and community development organization helping the people of Cap-Haïtien’s communities be healthy and self-sufficient citizens. HHA US partners with ULS to maximise primary healthcare accessibility in the region
ULS was founded in 2010 with Haitian doctors, nurses and other community supporters and is registered with the Haitian Ministry of Health. Their primary health care center was established in the Bande du Nord communal section in Cap-Haitian, Haiti in December 2010. In December 2011, they developed an affiliated community clinic in Mombin-Crochu village to ensure integrated health services and support the empowerment of vulnerable people from the village.
Their mission is to do the Lord’s work by providing integrated, holistic healthcare services, promote the self-sustainability in the community by supporting the empowerment of the most vulnerable households through services such as:
• Comprehensive primary health care
• Community education and school sponsorship for children in need
• Microloans and support for farmers
• Acts of charity, like feeding the poor
• Community health evangelism program.
HHA US, and our partner hospital HCBH, cooperate with ULS on medical referrals, training and development and by accepting donations on behalf of ULS via our website. Please click the link below to make a donation which will be passed on to ULS.
