On Friday, April 5th, the White House will honor HHF’s Jeremiah Lowney Jr. as one of twelve Rotary International members who are “Champions of Change.” Rotary’s main objective is service in the workplace, in communities, and internationally. “Each of these men and women have spent countless hours helping communities both here in the U.S. and abroad. Collectively, these Rotary Club members have touched the lives of thousands of people—whether by improving health and providing health services, preventing hunger, supporting our poor communities, empowering unemployed, addicted, or homeless adults, or caring for students. The Rotarians we honor today truly exemplify the Rotary Club motto: “Service above Self” and in doing so show that the American spirit is a generous one,” said Paulette Aniskoff, Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of the White House Office of Public Engagement.

“The poet John Donne tells us that ‘no man is an island’. Thousands of generous and caring people have been responsible for the successes of the Haitian Health Foundation over the past 31 years. I accept this White House/Rotary honor on behalf of those wonderful benefactors. I also accept it for my wife, Virginia, my family, and all of the hundreds of staff and volunteers both in the USA and Haiti.” “Mesi anpil!” (“Thank you very much!”) –Jeremiah J. Lowney, Jr., DDS, MS, MPH, Volunteer President, Haitian Health Foundation

Thanks to all of our donors and volunteers for helping us to achieve this prestigious status!
