Camp Ami Program - April 4th - 12th, 2015 (dates subject to change)
AYUDA began its involvement in Haiti supporting the first-ever diabetes education camp for young people living with Type 1 diabetes in Haiti back in February 2012. The camp was coordinated by local diabetes organization FHADIMAC, based in Port-au-Prince. Since then AYUDA has facilitated an international exchange program for youth with Type 1 diabetes in Haiti and neighboring Dominican Republic. After nearly two years of ground work, a small group of AYUDA volunteers traveled to Haiti for AYUDA's pilot Camp Ami program in 2014. AYUDA is pleased to be working again with FHADIMAC for Camp Ami in 2015. Click here to read more
