Making a difference since 1986

Volunteer with us

Since its founding, AHDH has enjoyed the help of hundreds of volunteers going on three trips each year. Volunteers are the lifeline of AHDH’s projects in Haiti. They provide an invaluable service to the people of La Vallée de Jacmel. Volunteers contribute long hours at the Hôpital St Joseph in Ridoré – built by the people of La Vallée de Jacmel that AHDH in collaboration with CODEVA.

Our volunteer mission trips take place three times a year: Summer, Fall and Winter. They usually last two weeks.

Volunteers needed from all kinds of backgrounds

Our volunteers are from varied backgrounds, including:

  • Doctors
  • Nurses
  • Ultra Sonographers
  • Educators
  • Engineers
  • Medical Students
  • College Students
  • Entertainers
  • Entrepreneurs
  • Lawyers
  • Anyone Else
Mission Trips
We take three two-week trips per year: Summer, Fall and Winter.
The total cost per volunteer for each mission averages between $1500 – $1750 USD per week.
Expenses include a support fee for supplies and food, airfare, lodging, local transportation, as well as any personal expenses and souvenirs.
Tax Deductible
As we are a non-profit with limited resources, volunteers assume the cost of missions. The trips are tax deductible as we are a 501(c) organization.
Raising Funds
AHDH also provides a letter for students to help find sponsors for mission trips.

Mission Reports

AHDH undertakes missions three times each year with a core focus on healthcare. Ever since we started our first mission in 1986, we have expanded our efforts and volunteer work by leaps and bounds. The importance of St. Joseph Hospital and its staff and volunteers to the people of La Vallée de Jacmel cannot be overstated and has increased significantly ever since the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January 2010 and the following cholera outbreak.

Our missions bring much needed health care to the people of La Vallée de Jacmel, but they also provide essential clinical and surgical experience and education in many specialties for our staff physicians, nurses, aids and technicians.
