  GLOBAL FAMILY PHILANTHROPY MEDICAL CLINIC, MALFETY, HAITI THERE'S STILL TIME TO DONATE We're getting closer to our target goal with eight weeks left in our fundraiser - but we still need your help!   In late 2014, the board members and volunteers of Global Family Philanthropy (GFP) made a long-term commitment to serving the major medical needs of the Haitian community when they opened the doors of the Global Family Community Clinic in Malfety, Haiti.Understanding the community's life-impacting chronic medical conditions, along with the dearth of available quality medical care in the area, volunteers busily outfitted a previously vacant space with U.S.-grade medical supplies, and received service commitments from both U.S. and Haitian physicians. Less than two years later, the clinic serves more than 150 patients a week, diagnosing and treating ailments from dysentery to heart disease, and everything in between. But the work of GFP is not finished, and your help is needed. The non-profit can double the number of patients seen -- and the lives impacted -- at the clinic each week by outfitting an additional three exam rooms that currently remain unusable. The group is requesting donations totaling $10,000 to sterilize the space, provision supplies, and pay for the medical services of additional ...

  June 2016  NEWS & HEARTFELT NOTES Through the eyes of our fifteen year old volunteer, Chloe Rudnicki For many in San Clemente, life is full of privilege, whether it is acknowledged or otherwise. Reality hardly transcends that of one's own life, and the suffering beyond our doorstep is little more than an abstract idea that hardly evokes more a vague sense of pity or empathy.  One knows of the third world, but does not  know it.  The mind is a powerful thing, but it's powers to reason and imagine are no match for the real world. The real world contains depths of which the mind can only scratch the surface. Having lived an exponentially blessed life, I was possessed by this detached empathy that comes with the security of never having gone hungry or living only for the prospect of survival. Featured is a Haitian Mother as she visits the local well to collect water for her and her children. Two years ago, I sought to understand more of the world, a thing of numerous dimensions and realities even if the first world strives to simplify or ignore its complexity.  I went to Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, with a charity called Global Family Philanthropy, driven by ...

  Global Family Newsletter         Summer 2015 Another Wonderful Volunteer Experience        The group of dedicated volunteers visited the elderly at "Project Dignity."       Once again a team of Global Family Philanthropy volunteers traveled to Haiti to check up on our projects and spread their love. The team departed in June for Ouanaminthe with full suitcases and hearts filled with excitement and anticipation. The volunteers did not waste a second. Upon arrival they immediately headed over to GFP children's home where the kids were waiting with smiling faces and open arms.    The volunteers were eagerly awaited at Project Dignity in the small village of Derac. With arms full of pillows, sheets, reading glasses, slippers, socks and other supplies the team spent a whole afternoon and evening with the elderly. The staff at Project Dignity surprised the visitors with a one year anniversary celebration with a service, music and a meal for the whole village.The elderly in the home are doing well and enjoyed their time with our volunteers. As expected and greatly appreciated, the Catholic Church is taking great care of our medical clinic in Malfety. Our impact continues to benefit the community and medical volunteers looking for a well-equipped site to provide services now have a facility ...
