Partner Organizations

The founding, development, growth, and ongoing management of Zanmi Beni is a outstanding example of a collaborative effort among international organizations. We are grateful for the commitment and support of Partners In Health, Zanmi Lasante, and Operation Blessing:


Partners In Health (PIH) is a Boston based nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.  Visit


Zanmi Lasante is a sister organization to Partners In Health and is based in Haiti.  It is PIH’s flagship project—the oldest, largest, most ambitious, and most replicated. PIH/ZL operates clinics and hospitals at 12 sites across Haiti’s Central Plateau and lower Artibonite. Today, Zanmi Lasante is the largest nongovernment health care provider in Haiti, serving an area of 1.3 million people and employing 5,400 Haitian citizens.


Operation Blessing International (OBI) is a nonprofit humanitarian organization dedicated to demonstrating God’s love by alleviating human need and suffering in the United States and around the world. One of the largest charities in America, OBI provides strategic relief in 23 countries on a daily basis through core programs such as disaster relief, medical aid, hunger relief, vulnerable children and orphan care, clean water and community development. Visit

“Zanmi Beni rose from the ashes of the earthquake that devastated Haiti in 2010. Envisioned as a refuge for some of Haiti’s most vulnerable children, it has become a haven for them, for their caregivers, and for our many friends and partners who are part of the ZB family.”
