Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The Gaskov Clergé Foundation (GCF) exists to perpetuate the legacy of Gaskov Clergé. The foundation is a nonprofit and philanthropic organization established to promote health, sports, education and sciences in both the United States and Haiti. GCF is committed to empowering individuals and will carry out its mission by:
Establishing domestic and international programs and scholarship funds to provide financial support to deserving individuals in their pursuit of academic excellence and to further their interest in the sciences.
Identifying and developing resources for the promotion and support of preventive healthcare in Haiti and encourage the philanthropic participation of physicians, nurses, other allied health professionals and the corporate community.
Fostering the mental and physical development of young Haitian athletes and provide support and assistance in the implementation of the infrastructure necessary to prepare the athletes for competitions.
Since its inception in 1999, the Gaskov Clergé Foundation (GCF) has focused its philanthropic operations on empowering individuals one life at a time. GCF has given over 500 US volunteers the opportunity to bring health care to over 20,000 underserved men, women and children in Haiti. Our volunteers have made many critical interventions for patients who would have otherwise lost their lives due to non-existent access to health care. Thus far, the medical missions have profoundly impacted the volunteers and patientsâ€™ lives in ways that are indescribable. In addition, through the generosity of many, GCF now provides scholarships to over 180 children in Haiti, giving them an opportunity for a decent education and a brighter future.
In the face of the unimaginable loss of human lives caused by the devastating earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010 and the recent Cholera outbreak, the country finds itself in an even more vulnerable situation with drastically insufficient health and education infrastructure. The need to construct modern medical centers, hospitals and schools is now more than ever undeniable. That is key to the rebirth of Haiti.
To respond to this exceptional void, GCF and friends have taken the first steps towards building a modern medical center in the South of Haiti. It is our hope to offer all architectural and structural details to the people of Haiti so that such centers can be replicated across the country, with minimal architectural and design costs. GCF will also take the same approach towards building an academic center of excellence. Much has been done, but so much is needed, and none more than medical care and education. Nothing is more compelling than watching children who have such zest for life and resiliency, in dire need of basic, yet unavailable medical care and educational opportunities.
