Healthcare in Haiti was the focus on a rainy evening last month, but weather didn’t keep the party-goers and patrons from coming out in force to raise funds for the CRUDEM Foundation’s Prosthetic Lab in Haiti. According to event organizer Carol Fipp, the silent auction, carnival games, and Haitian arts and crafts raised approximately $86,000 for the lab, which creates prostheses for Haitians who lost limbs in the 2010 earthquake. Proceeds will also benefit other medical programs at Hôpital Sacré Coeur, the largest private hospital and a major employer in northern Haiti. “100% of all donations to CRUDEM go directly to the hospital in Milot,” said Fipp. “We have a generous donor who is covering all of CRUDEM’s administrative and fundraising costs, so every single donated penny goes to Haiti.”
