Saving Lives from Above: How Haiti Air Ambulance Provides Critical Medical Services

July 28, 2023

As the only helicopter air ambulance service dedicated to the 11.4 million people of Haiti, Haiti Air Ambulance (HAA) is committed to uplifting our community in their time of need. We are a non-profit organization driven by a core mission to provide critical medical services to the people of Haiti, regardless of their ability to pay. Through our comprehensive range of services, we strive to make a lasting impact on the lives of those we serve.

Beyond Medical Assistance

At HAA, we understand the unique challenges faced by the Haitian community. That’s why we go above and beyond to provide assistance in not just medical areas, but also in the economic, environmental, and social spheres. Our work extends beyond mere medical transportation; we are dedicated to improving the overall well-being of our people.

A Lifeline for the People

Since our inception, we have made an impact 365 days a year. Over 2,000 patients have benefited from our transport, triage, and treatment services. We are the lifeline for 126 rural clinics and major hospitals, ensuring that patients can reach the medical care they desperately need. At our 200+ landing sites, our staff and partner doctors have treated thousands of patients, providing them with the care and attention they deserve.

Delivering Critical Medical Supplies

In addition to our patient-focused services, we also play a crucial role in delivering critical medical supplies. During the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic, we successfully delivered 60,000 vaccines and essential medical supplies to combat the virus. Our commitment to the well-being of our community knows no bounds.

Swift Response and Maternal Care

One of our core services is our helicopter air ambulance response. Being the only helicopter air ambulance service in Haiti, we take great pride in our ability to swiftly respond to emergencies and provide timely medical assistance. Whether it’s a natural disaster, an epidemic, or any other humanitarian crisis, we are the first on-site, ready to rescue and treat victims in need.

Maternal and perinatal care is another critical area where we excel. We perform life-saving measures for pregnant women and their newborns, ensuring their safe arrival at hospitals where they can receive the specialized care they require. This service has been instrumental in saving countless lives and ensuring a brighter future for families.

Bridging the Gap

Transporting patients, doctors, vaccines, and medical supplies to clinics and hospitals across the country is another crucial aspect of our work. We bridge the gap between remote communities and medical facilities, providing a lifeline for those who would otherwise face arduous journeys lasting up to 12 hours. Through our services, we reduce travel time to a mere 24 minutes, making access to medical care faster and more efficient.

Empowering Healthcare Professionals

Our impact extends beyond the immediate relief we provide. We also tackle the critical shortage of healthcare workers in Haiti. Through our healthcare training and employment programs, we train and employ healthcare professionals who can address the pressing needs of our community. By investing in education and job opportunities, we empower individuals to become agents of change within their own communities.

Your Support Matters

We cannot accomplish our mission alone. Your support is crucial in enabling us to continue our life-saving work. Your donation, whether big or small, makes a difference. For instance, with just a dollar, you can help us provide life-saving helicopter transport that reduces travel time and ensures timely medical care. Together, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of the people of Haiti.
