GOLF I FASHION I FOOD I MUSICPlease join us by lifting your hands to help ‘Raise the Bátéyes’
Join us October 20th, 2014 at the Upper Montclair Country Club, Clifton, NJ for a day of golf, and fundraising aimed at completing a health clinic for Haitian's and Dominicans living in the bátéye ghettoes of Western Dominican Republic. Our goal is to raise $2.5 million to complete the clinic. The completed complex will deliver much needed services such as childhood vaccinations, light triage, routine physicals, and potentially life-saving surgical procedures.

Helping the Haitians and DominicansWe serve those that need us the most.
Before and especially after the 2010 Haitian Earthquake, impoverished Haitians migrated East into the Dominican for a better life. What they found were impoverished conditions where they now live with impoverished Dominicans in areas called "Bateys." There are so many Bateys, they do not have names, they have numbers. Too often we focus on the needs of Haitians in Haiti. But there are thousands more who live in these forgotten and ignored Bateys.
The future’s what we make of it.The Medical Clinic
In a partnership with L.I.G. Global, we have purchased the land and are raising money for a clinic near the Bateys about 35 km from Haiti. This clinic will host visiting Drs., Students and nurses as they tend to the needs of the impoverished Haitians and Dominicans.
Inoculations for children don't exist but Polio, AIDS, Cholera, and many other diseases do exist.
Phase one of the clinic will be inoculations, minor injury care, general healthcare. Phase two will include surgery.
