How We Work

MATH depends on private donors, foundations and corporate sponsors to cover the salaries of Haitian staff, mobile vehicle maintenance, and medical equipment and supplies. These donor “investments” fuel MATH’s short- and long-range needs as well as our ability to scale up our services in Haiti.

We have an all-volunteer board of directors, and our U.S.-based medical volunteers pay their own way to travel with our medical missions. We are committed to using nearly 100% of public donations for our projects.

Our U.S.-based teams of volunteer medical professionals work side-by-side with our Haitian medical partners, educating and collaborating with them. Together, we now support approximately 17,000 visits a year to men, women and children who otherwise would not have access to consistent healthcare.

The work we do takes us to some of the most congested and most remote areas of Haiti. Our teams are challenged not only by the demands of providing services to as many people as possible during a trip, but also by the difficult travel conditions as we make our way to these locations.

But we feel fortunate to not only provide this much-needed care, but also the opportunity to meet and interact with men, women and children we see each day.

Our success is in the numbers
