Grace Children's Hospital and Pediatric Clinic in Haiti

In the early 1960s, when the founders of the International Child Care Jim and Virginia Snavley visited Haiti for the first time they were shocked to witness the sight of dying children in the street from malnutrition, tuberculosis and many other illnesses. They felt God's call to stand by these destitute and opened a small clinic--this is how Grace Children's Hospital and Pediatric Clinic began. For the last 40 years, Grace Children's Hospital has served millions of individuals who came to its door regardless of every circumstance, belief and background. In the beginning there were a handful of beds with limited facilities but gradually the support and capacity began to grow with the thanks to the help of International Child Care, Churches, General Board of Global Ministries and individuals. After the 2010 earthquake, in addition to its continuing regular programs on inpatient and outpatient departments, the hospital served as the main food and water distribution center.
