of Haitian Rehabilitation (FONHARE) is a grassroots Haitian organization
providing rehabilitation services to the citizens of Ouanaminthe. It is the
only organization providing rehab services in the northeast of Haiti to 13
cities with almost 500,000 citizens. Ivens Louius, the founder and
director, is a physical therapist and an occupational therapist. FONHARE currently
is providing services in a medical clinic owned and run by Louius's brother, who is a physician. A foundation has
been laid for a large onsite rehabilitation clinic adjacent to the medical
clinic. There is a genuine need for volunteers to be part of establishing
rehabilitation and physical therapy as a specialized service in a country
that had virtually none before the 2010 earthquake. For more information about
volunteer opportunities, as well as opportunities to provide financial support,
