Recapping our Annual Celebration Event

Mary Ann getting award 2015

On April 16, Hands up for Haiti held its Annual Celebration Dinner. We honored Dr. Mary Ann LoFrumento, HUFH Vice President and Co-founder, and the important work that she does as Director of HUFH’s Global Health Program.  Dr. LoFrumento is dedicated to introducing medical students and residents to the challenges of delivering health care to underserved children in developing countries, and equally dedicated to ensuring the sustainability of HUFH projects by supporting the Haitian medical community.

And we had a great time while doing so!  The almost 150 attendees were welcomed by a Haitian drummer band and treated to the fabulous views from 42: The Restaurant at the top of the Ritz Carlton, in White Plains, NY. We enjoyed great company, a delicious dinner, a silent auction, and a “program auction” that enabled participants to support directly HUFH’s programs in Haiti, including those that address childhood malnutrition and infant mortality.

Matching Campaign a Success!

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we have raised the funds needed to secure a matching grant from the SG Foundation.   Your support and this grant have allowed us to expand our malnutrition program to four sites, helping hundreds of children overcome the debilitating effects of childhood malnutrition.  Our program works with a combination of treatments including locally grown peanut-based nutritional supplements such as Medika Mamba, promotion of breastfeeding, and education on nutrition and prevention of malnutrition.
