Current Challenges to Haitian Project

Preventive Health Strategies Unlike many other nonprofit organizations, Preventive Health Strategies does not rely on any funding from government grants. Our support comes entirely from private individuals, associations, foundations, and businesses who entrust us with resources so that we can fulfill our humanitarian mission.

All funds we have received for specific tragedies have been devoted entirely to those events.

By clarifying that we may use your contribution wherever most needed, you allow long-term health systems that are vital to vulnerable people around the world and respond to emergencies that do not receive widespread attention. We commit to spend your money in the most productive, efficient way possible.

If you wish to restrict the use of your donation only for a specific purpose or area, we will honor that wish or inform you that we cannot and offer to return your contribution. We have not and will not collect money for what may appear to be a specific incident or purpose with the intention of using it for other purposes.

Haiti is currently out of fashion.

The benefit of the Work in Haiti both on the missionaries and the Haitian people creates a mandate that we continue.

How? Honestly this is a very difficult story problem. I was not good at story problems as a sixth grader.

The great thing about being married to +Annette Bosworth is that I am continually reminded that the truly great things in life don't require money.

People generally do better with scarcity than abundance.

Living with +Annette Bosworth I see her sacrifice and the sacrifice others do for her on a daily basis.

Before I left this week I over heard a conversation with another doctor and Annette Bosworth

The doctor says to Annette "You couldn't pay me a million dollars to take care of that patient!"

Annette Bosworth said "you couldn't pay me a million dollars to take care if that patient either."

Taking the life with Annette and applying those lessons to Haiti.
The first issue is safe, comfortable long term housing and food.
The second issue will be cheap transportation.

The difficulty currently is that it does not cost much more to do these things for twenty people than it does for our current group size of 5.
