2019 Gala

Thank you for another successful gala!

On Tuesday, October 29th, nearly 350 people gathered in Newton, Massachussets, for the first-ever Health Equity International gala. We were fortunate to have Dr. Inobert Pierre, Director General of St. Boniface Hospital, and Dr. Louise Ivers, Executive Director of the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Global Health, as our featured speakers for the evening. Dr. Pierre and Dr. Ivers shared stories from their experiences working at St. Boniface and the ways in which the team is working to build a brighter future for Haiti. Finally, we were pleased to honor our longtime board member Beth Floor for her many years of service and dedication to Health Equity International and St. Boniface Hospital. Three new incubators were purchased in Beth's name and will be quickly installed in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where they will help to save countless lives.

We are deeply humbled by all of our gala donors’ generosity and faith in our mission to achieve health equity in Haiti. Their support of our donors will go to work immediately, ensuring patients will receive the lifesaving surgery they need and vaccinating children against preventable diseases. We will continue to do whatever it takes to transport critical supplies to the hospital and provide training to doctors and nurses from across Haiti.

As we navigate this difficult time in Haiti’s history, our donors' support is even more meaningful. On behalf of all of our patients and staff, thank you for standing with Health Equity International and St. Boniface Hospital.

Thank you to our 2019 gala sponsors!
