Ann Prepare Lavni (APL) as a non-profit organization with an emphasis on empowerment through education for the citizens of Anse-a-Pitres and Banane, Haiti. As a community venture, APL would like to expand its role to improve the physical health well-being of the population of Banane. This was decided after several needs assessment visits in 2015-2016.
Banane is a city in the southeastern region of Haiti, approximately 46 miles from Port-au-Prince. It is situated in a mountainous region where the nearest hospital is about 20 miles away near the Haitian-Dominical border. People in this city have very limited access to transportation.
APL’s goal is to work collaboratively with the staff at the clinic in Banane, to improve primary care.

This will be accomplished through:

Groups are responsible for their own airfair. Airfare is typically is around $500 roundtrip.
