Lavi Project believes when you act you change lives, which changes families, which will change a community and, ultimately, the world.
As pioneers providing multi-tiered sustainable solutions addressing disease, hunger, and poverty, we improve the lives of families in Haiti and create a boundless future of possibilities that change culture and families for generations to come.
Through our Mobile Medical Clinic model, we have created access to professionally staffed, quality medical care, for men, women, and children that have until late, no other means.
Our clinics are staffed with EMTs, Paramedics, RNs, nurse practitioners, Physician Assistants, and MDs that have made the sacrifice to donate their time, money, and skills to help the marginalized and forgotten people of Haiti.
Our trips are 10-12 days in length, with a scheduled 4 full-day clinics.

Sunday is always a day off in Haiti out of respect for their culture and religious beliefs.
(and a well-deserved day off for us as well). This day often includes some sightseeing
and visiting with the children of Bousol Timoun Orphanage
In addition to the Sunday, Lavi Project always provides an additional R&R day(Rest and Relaxation) (a TBD event).
