Konbit Sante relies on donations, both cash and non-cash, and actions, both big and small, to help sustain and build on what we do.  When you donate, you become part of the solution by supporting initiatives that positively impact people’s health and well-being in the communities where they live.  Thank you.

There are many ways that you can support our work.

In-kind Donations: View List of Items We Always Need 

Konbit Sante sends 40' shipping containers of medicine, equipment and supplies to Cap-Haitien every year.  We also send smaller shipments on a reguar basis.  

When considering items for donation, please keep in mind:

  • Because of ease of repairs and availability of replacement parts, older equipment and lower tech items better serve our needs.
  • We can only accept medications with expiration dates 6 months or more from the donation date.
  • Disposing items in Haiti is expensive and can easily pollute the environment. We take every precaution to ensure that we ship only what is needed and useful.
  • We do not have funds to pay for shipping for most items.  However, in certain circumstances we may be able to pay for transportation for biomedical equipment or other high value items.

Process For Donating

  1. Email us at supplies@konbitsante.org with a list of items that you believe may match our needs.

  2. We will respond to your email immediately.  We will then contact our staff in Haiti to see if we can use your donation.   

  3. If we can accept your donation, we will provide shipping details and donor letters for tax purposes.  If we cannot use your donations, we will refer you to a partner agency that can use them locally.
