January 12, 2010 Anniversary - A Day of Painful Remembrance


January 12, 2019 marks the 10th anniversary of the devastating 7.1 magnitude earthquake that brought death, destruction and unimaginable misery to Haiti and its proud people. The depth of the tragedy cannot adequately be reflected by these mind numbing statistics; close to a quarter of a million human beings killed, over 300k injured, 1.5 million left homeless. This in a country already known to be vulnerable to both man made and natural disasters. January 12th therefore is a deeply painful and personal day for us. That day 8 years ago changed the course of our lives forever. Haiti and specifically Port-au-Prince, the place of Dr. Laborde's birth and childhood, was reduced to rubble.


“God Why Us”


While we could not answer that question to the millions of Haitians whose lives were shattered on this day, our non-profit foundation's goal is to ensure that the significance of that day is never lost nor forgotten. We are committed to our humanitarian, health and education efforts in Haiti, one precious life at a time.
