““The idea that some lives matter less is the root of all that is wrong in the world.” -Dr. Paul Farmer, PIH co-founder
Immediately after the 7.2-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, Dr. Dyemy Dumerjuste and his colleagues quickly assessed the situation from Port-au-Prince. And shortly after, he was on a helicopter, as part of the first team to evacuate survivors from the Nippes department, a devastated region in the South near the epicenter of the Aug. 14 earthquake.
“We are a social justice organization that responds to the moral imperative to provide high-quality health care globally to those who need it most. We strive to ease suffering by providing a comprehensive model of care that includes access to food, transportation, housing, and other key components of healing. We bring the benefits of modern medicine to those who have suffered from the overt and subtle injustices of the world, in the past and in the present. We refuse to accept that any life is worth less than another.”
