Our main goal is to train and educate local folks to take better care of themselves, we want to embrace every opportunity available to do so.
Words In Action is a nonprofit organization founded in 2008 by Claude Louis after completion of medical school in Haiti. After working with medical mission teams during the 6 years while in medical school, he started organizing mobile clinics in the mountains of Kenscoff, Qui Croit, Bongar. Dr Louis wanted to fulfill his long time dream of serving the people in the community where he was born.
Three years later, a Canadian Philanthropist who knew about Dr Louis’ passion, overheard his work for four months with the victims of the earthquake at the Baptist Mission’s hospital in Haiti and decided to send him a nice gratification check.
Dr Louis wisely took the donation and put it toward starting a community clinic in the community of Qui Croit providing care to thousands of people, some with a walking distance of as long as 5 hours. WIA is very strategic in the way that we plan to assist the people of Qui Croit.
Our goal is to accompany them, to teach them what we know, match it with what they believe is right for them and help educate where needed be. Words In Action has the edge over numerous nonprofits/non-profit organizations due to the fact that Dr Louis has lived and grown there and still is very deeply established in the Haitian culture with a deep understanding of the reality and the struggle the people face on a daily basis.
