HAITIAN HEALTH FOUNDATION
Twenty-six years ago Dr Mark X. Lowney made his first medical mission trip to Haiti with his father, Dr. Jeremiah J. Lowney, to bring medical and dental relief to the poorest people in the Western Hemisphere. “We both fell in love with the Haitian people”, states Dr. Mark. “These people have tremendous faith despite their incredible poverty and they are some of the most joy-filled and appreciative people you will ever meet”.
Dr. Jeremiah has proceeded to establish a non-profit medical and dental outreach in Haiti called The Haitian Health Foundation, which provides medical, dental, nutritional relief and shelter to the natives of Jeremie, Haiti as well as to 250,000 people living in surrounding villages. For more information, visit www.haitianhealthfoundation.org. Dr. Mark continues to help his dad bring relief to the Haitian people every year and is now starting to bring his children to Haiti in order to experience Third World Medicine and hopefully follow in their grandfather and father’s philanthropic ways.
