WHY HAITI? 2012 Project

  • Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, we aim to provide education and job training, which is needed desperately.

  • Haiti’s literacy rate of about 53 percent falls well below the 90 percent average literacy rate for Latin American and Caribbean countries, we want to change this through our new educational center of excellence.

  • Haiti faces shortages in educational supplies and qualified teachers, we aim to fill that need with our new educational facility in Fort Liberté.

  • Haiti is one of the world’s poorest and least developed countries of the Western Hemisphere

  • Haiti boasts a literacy rate of only 52.9%, educational centers like the one Faithful path has proposed is desperately needed.

WHY THE RGVProject? 

  • Texas is the uninsured capital of the United States with more than 5.8 million Texans (1.5 million children) lacking health insurance with RGV having the second highest uninsured rate in the state.

  • The RGV is one of the most expensive health-care markets in the country and its population is one of the poorest in the entire United States,

  • The RGV has the fewest physicians per capita in the entire United States.

  • The RGV is heavily reliant on Medicaid and Medicare payments to finance its entire health care system.

  • The RGV is plagued by very high rates of obesity, diabetes, lack of exercise, and overall poor health status.

 

WHAT WE ARE DOING

Cooper Internal Medicine has dedicated the office in Edinburg to the ministry of FPI, but there is a great need in the area that needs to be covered. Help us continue providing medical care to those in the Rio Grande Valley that otherwise wouldn’t have access to quality healthcare. Please make a contribution today.

By extending health coverage to the uninsured, Faithful Path could improve their overall health by 7 to 8 percent. That’s change we can make, we hope you can spare some to help us continue our efforts.

The region is made up of four counties: Starr County, Hidalgo County, Willacy County, and Cameron County. As of January 1, 2008, the Texas State Data Center estimated the population of the Rio Grande Valley at 1,138,872.[2] According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2008, 86 percent of Cameron County, 90 percent of Hidalgo County, 97 percent of Starr County, and 86 percent of Willacy County are Hispanic.

The largest city is Brownsville (Cameron County), followed by McAllen (Hidalgo County). Other major cities include Harlingen, Mission, Edinburg, and Pharr
