Care 2 Communities is excited to announce the arrival of our newest Board member, Marie Marthe Saint Cyr. Marie joins us as the C2C team plans for 2015 and the opening of our next two clinics in Haiti.
Marie currently serves as Executive Director of The Lambi Fund, a non-profit organization that works toward economic justice, democracy and alternative sustainable development in Haiti. She has been working at the grassroots level for many years. Prior to joining the Lambi Fund, Marie was the founding Executive Director of Iris House, a center for women with HIV/AIDS in Harlem. She also headed the New York AIDS Coalition, and served as the Deputy Commissioner of Human Rights for New York City.
“I am truly honored to be selected to join the board of C2C. It is a unique opportunity to model sustainable health care access for communities in need. What impressed me and urged me to follow C2C is the attention to community participation; the intent to impart responsibility versus a charity approach to the care given and the treatment of the consumer as an integral part of their care,” said Marie.
