Help Us in Haiti!

Help Us in Haiti!

Haiti is still reeling from the massive earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince on January 12, 2010. Over 300,000 people perished and millions more were affected. As an ophthalmologist and eye surgeon from Brooklyn, where so many of us Haitians live, I was among a group of early responders. I was alarmed that survivors who sustained eye injuries were receiving negligible attention because eye care services were not available. I decided to do something about that situation! Sight Keepers International (S.K.I.) was born!


As a 501© (3) nonprofit, humanitarian organization, S.K.I.’s mission is to provide ophthalmic services to those who were affected by the disaster and help others who have no access to eye care. S.K.I. has been focusing on that mission since its inception in 2010. Those who received help responded with immense gratitude. However, there are countless others who are still in desperate need of care! On this up and coming tenth anniversary of the earthquake, your heartfelt support could make all the difference in Haiti and in the world! In fact, your gift will help restore someone’s well-being so that they can see … and work … and live!
