Health Equity International Virtual Gala 2021

Thank you for another great event!

On Wednesday, October 6, 2021, Health Equity International/St. Boniface Hospital held its 2021 Virtual Gala. Throughout the event, clinicians shared how they responded to the August 14th earthquake, managed the COVID-19 crisis, and kept St. Boniface Hospital open and fully operational for every patient in need. Our patients also shared their stories of hope and healing, and why they trusted St. Boniface Hospital with their lives. Finally, we honored HEI/SBH Board Member, Fr. John Unni of Boston's Saint Cecilia Parish, for his unwavering commitment to the people of Haiti.

About our Honoree

Father John Unni has been pastor at Boston’s Saint Cecilia Parish for the past 17 years. There, he has focused his ministry on education, health, and spiritual growth—especially for those who are marginalized and impoverished. As a young man, Fr. Unni visited Haiti; this trip had a profound impact on his life and continues to guide his notions of equity and justice. He believes that as a priest, he is called to help people understand the important roles compassion and generosity can, and should, play in all our lives.

Fr. Unni has lent his unique talents to Health Equity International/St. Boniface Hospital’s Board of Directors since 2014, bringing both passion and levity to the work. He is also currently serving as a prestigious Barr Fellow. We are grateful to Fr. John for his partnership and his tireless support of the people of southern Haiti.
