Celebrating Women in Haiti

May 8, 2012

For International Women’s Day last month, the women of Fond-des-Blancs, Haiti gathered together to celebrate with music, dancing and talking. The goal of the day is to empower and celebrate women as leaders and caretakers of their families and communities. Young and old turned out to listen to a speech given by St. Boniface Hospital Deputy Director Miliane Clermont. As SBHF continues to focus on improving health outcomes for women and children in rural Haiti, educating and empowering women to take charge of their own health and the health of their children remains an integral part of our work.
