Trailblazers: A Celebration image

Raise a glass to those who charted the course for HUFH’s lifesaving programs that are flourishing today, 13 years and still going strong.

Join us and our in-country leaders, Thermitus and Fritznel Jean, for cocktails, food, music and fun with a Haitian vibe as you watch the trails blaze over the NYC skyline from Elsie's Rooftop Lounge.


Our Trailblazers led the way to the lifesaving organization that HUFH remains, 13 years down the road. The last several years have been challenging for all of us, but Haiti has been hit especially hard by medical, political, and natural disasters. The path to success during these difficult times? With the roots that our trailblazers planted flourishing, HUFH's team on the ground has grown stronger than ever, delivering care to the poorest of the poor, saving lives and building a better and healthier future for the people of Haiti.

At HUFH, saving lives never takes a day off. Despite the chaotic conditions on the ground in Haiti, our lifesaving health care programs continue without interruption: building on the foundation laid by our pioneer Trailblazers, our team on the ground stops at nothing to protect the health of others.
