Today many of the original orphans that Josephine started caring for in 1991 are now taking leadership and nursing positions for Touch of Light in Haiti.
TOLM’s mission is to maintain the following principles:
Statistics show that a year after the devastating 7.0 earthquake in Haiti there is still $78 billion dollars’ worth of aide needed to restore the country. Half of the countries schools, 5,000 to be exact, were destroyed along with hospitals, homes, and three university colleges. The effects of the hurricane have left over 80,000 children without schools and thousands of people without healthcare. Although currently established outreach programs have provided 57 semi-permanent school buildings and clinics in rural Haiti regions, there is still an urgent need for more assistance. Our vision is to provide care for all Haitian’s who are in need of medical attention and education.
Our organization assist rural, and local men, women, and children in the L’azile region of Haiti. We currently provide education for unfortunate children through our community training program in a temporary facility in which we serve grades preK-5; Also, We also provide healthcare in L’Azille’s with temporary community health clinics briging volunteer physicians, nurses, and other clinicians to ensure we provide great quality care.
