History & Biography

Aim4Haiti was established in March 2017, when Gillian Compo co-founded the new nonprofit together with a dedicated Haitian partner.

Following her second volunteer medical mission trip to Haiti, Gillian a Vermont Educator/School Nurse, and parishioner of Holy Family/St. Lawrence/St. Pius X Parish in Essex Junction, Vermont, USA, felt called to partner with local Haitian organizations to learn more about Haitian self sustainability and growth in a country still recovering from the 2010 earthquake, and recent hurricane damage.

Originally from Scotland where she first graduated as a nurse, and went on her first volunteer mission trip to Lourdes, France, Gillian has resided in the USA for 15 years now. Prior to that she spent 12 years living and working in Germany, and has dedicated her life to helping others. She has worked as a volunteer nurse in South Korea, France and Haiti. Gillian has spent a lifetime working in hospitals in Scotland, Germany and the USA, caring for the sick and dying.

Haiti itself is a country striving to rebuild and regain independence after the devastation of the earthquake in 2010. As the poorest country in the western hemisphere, and recently impacted by hurricane Irma and hurricane Matthew many families struggle to provide food and clothing for their children. Sources of clean water are scarce, there is limited healthcare services, and the basic needs of humankind are often not being met on a regular basis.

Initially, Aim4Haiti was invited to partner with a local Haitian health care provider in the remote, mountain region of Beausejour to help run a mobile medical clinic. As a result of this mission trip, Aim4Haiti nonprofit now partners with The Little Brothers of St. Therese, a Haitian founded religious order of Brothers who live and work alongside the Haitian farmers of the beautiful, remote mountain area of Beausejour. We now advocate and promote more Haitian independence. So, if you know of any clinics, schools, or building sites in Haiti in need of well trained nurses, teachers or builders, please feel free to let us know. We liaison closely with the Brothers around this goal.

If you wish to partner with us in helping support the work of The Little Brothers of St. Therese, Beausejour, Haiti then please visit feel free to make a donation, or private message us via email or through Aim4Haiti facebook/Instagram page: https://www.facebook.com/aim4haiti/

A BIG thank you to all our 'Friends of Aim4Haiti' for their support and prayers thus far!
