A real difference.
While there may be debate about how to best deliver care in America, there should be little debate about how fortunate we are to have a healthcare system at all. With your help, we have been able to share some of our fortune to make a real difference for families in Haiti.
Enabling us to provide quality medical care where little to none exists.
Physicians, nurses, other medical professionals and logistics experts.
donors to date
Our mission benefits from the generosity of our corporate sponsors and individual donors.
We focus on serving families, particularly children, but our patients range from babies to those in their 90’s.
Ranging from minor to relatively complicated, from preventative to life-saving.
We don’t do this alone! Our local Haitian team members are indispensable to the success of our mission.
trips to haiti
Except for 2018, we’ve made two trips each year since 2007.
In 2007, Tony traveled to Haiti to offer his surgical skills and help. Blue Sky Surgical was born, and our story is far from over.
