Haiti’s maternal death rate is the highest in the western hemisphere where 1 in 80 women will die from childbirth and pregnancy related causes. Preventing many of these deaths with basic prenatal care and a safe, sanitary haven to give birth is now possible. The Mission Life International Birthing Center in Ouanaminthe Haiti, staffed with 3 full time midwives has so far delivered 21 healthy babies to 21 cared for moms. The cost for prenatal care and delivery for one pregnancy is $77. So, with our Birthing Center building completed and solar going in soon, and ongoing donations covering basic operations and salaries, we’re asking you to consider helping a mom in Haiti and her baby to not become another death statistic. When you donate $77, you will be given a number that will be matched to a pregnant mother, and then also the newborn baby. Upon delivery you will receive pictures showing the mom and baby, the lives you very well may have saved.
Donate for Solar Panels
Help raise money to provide solar panels for Mission Life International's orphanage in Haiti and any donation will make an impact. This orphanage houses 30 children of all ages with separate dormitories for the girls and boys. Through MLI’s efforts they (along with another 100 children) are being educated and trained in jobs that will support them, the orphanage and the community.

Haiti has the highest maternal and infant mortality rate in the Western Hemisphere. Mission Life International believes no woman or baby should die during childbirth. Nearly all maternal and infant deaths in Haiti are preventable with access to a skilled birth attendant. Our mission is to increase access to skilled maternal care along with skilled chiropractic care. Our programs are designed to educate and empower women.
Maternal health refers to the health of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period. Each stage should be a positive experience, ensuring women and their babies reach their full potential for health and well-being. The most common direct causes of maternal injury and death are excessive blood loss, infection, high blood pressure, unsafe abortion, and obstructed labor, as well as indirect causes such as anemia, malaria, and heart disease. Most maternal deaths are preventable with timely management by a skilled health professional working in a supportive environment. This proposal addresses the most important issues of the health environment of the community of Ouanaminthe, Haiti. It is also an effort to propose to its inhabitants’ new services, including chiropractic and chiropractic lifestyle education, as it relates to community-oriented maternal health. We propose that this will solve some of the deficiencies that affect the community.
On the days leading up to December 1, 2021, people all around the world will be coming together to tap into the power of human connection and strengthen communities. Will you be one of them?
Mission Life International Haiti and Chiromissions in Haiti, despite having gone through a year that included a COVID-19 pandemic, have much to be thankful for in 2021 – most importantly for CHIROPRACTIC donors who have sustained our efforts to house 29 children, 6 adults and educate 130 children in the poorest country in the Western hemisphere. We are the only chiropractic orphanage in the world.
We hope that some of you can support our new efforts and be a founding member of the first chiropractic birthing center in the world. Did you know that 1/260 women die in childbirth in Ouanaminthe, Haiti. One in 15 children die before the age of 5. The children and adults at our orphanage depend upon your help.
