The GROW Project, Inc. is an international partnership that strives to empower youth, community groups and local leaders in and around Cap Haitien, Haiti and in Greenbriar Valley, West Virginia. Initiatives include community health care, wellness and education.
They established a healthcare presence in the mountains near Cap Haitien, Haiti serving over 10,000 patients and focusing on the cholera epidemic. Together with Beders/Medecines San Frontieres they were able to create a community-based cholera response encouraging local leadership, and using local infrastructure to get information and supplies to as many patients as possible as well as get as patient in need of treatment to their cholera clinic.
In 2013, we had the privilege of providing medical diagnostic equipment to the The GROW Project’s cholera clinic in La Soufriere, Haiti. Equipment was used during clinics and continues to help with the health care and cholera response in these rural regions northern Haiti.
