Hospitals For Humanity (HFH) is a registered nonprofit organization with 501(C) 3 status in the United States that provides and creates sustainable healthcare programs for people living in the least developed countries of the world. We send international medical and non-medical volunteers to implement our programs to areas in need after a comprehensive needs assessment, but we also have salaried staff. Currently our programs are being implemented in Nigeria, Haiti and Philippines.


Having spotted a vacuum of medical services on Malapascua Island, just off the northern tip of Cebu island, HFH plans to offer long-term medical services to the islanders, the vast majority of which are roof-less since the typhoon. HFH’s goals include providing health assessments and treatment for local citizens, updating existing medical facilities, and providing training to local physicians, as well as responding to special cases of chronic illness and diseases through evaluation, diagnosis and patient referral.
