Responding to COVID-19: A virtual celebration of hope and healing at St. Boniface Hospital

Responding to COVID-19: A virtual celebration of hope and healing at St. Boniface Hospital

On October 14th, HEI's global community of friends, partners, and supporters joined us for our annual celebration of health equity

Throughout the evening, St. Boniface Hospital's clinicians discussed how they faced the COVID-19 crisis while continuing to care for thousands of patients who were relying on us to be there for them. They also shared stories of the patients they can never forget, and whose lives they changed.

We also honored Jim Ansara at this year's event. A tireless philanthropist, businessman, and HEI Board Member, Jim is the Co-Founder and Managing Director of Build Health International. His decade of work in Haiti has had a profound impact at St. Boniface Hospital; he and his team have helped us to save countless lives. We are proud to be his friend and partner and we are deeply grateful to his unwavering commitment to health equity in Haiti and around the world.
