 While there is no electrical service in this part of the country, a substantial generator system has been installed across the street from the hospital to supply its needs.  The largest generator was actually donated by Donald Trump and then wired and serviced by Rory Fredstrom of Hoffman Electric of Brainerd.

By founding “Comite de Bienfaisance de Pignon” (CBP) in 1984, Dr. Guy realized the need for a non-governmental organization (NGO) that was officially recognized by the Haitian Republic to administer and direct Hopital de Bienfaisance de Pignon (“Charity Hospital”).  Its programs include community and public healthcare, education coordination and development, potable water, and a sustainable agriculture program that also encompasses reforestation projects.  Eleven board members are elected every other year.  Together with a team of advisors – medical personnel, health organizations, collaborators, and agents – they promote and execute a long-range and self-sustaining healthcare plan for the people of Pignon and its surrounding communities. 
 
What began as a small clinic has now become a sixty-five-bed hospital in Pignon, as well as four satellite clinic/hospitals with an additional forty-one beds located within twenty miles of Pignon.  This CBP system serves 168,000 people.

Trump has a history of helping Haiti. Donald Trump donated to Rob Lowe’s charity ‘Valspar Hands for Habitat’ to help rebuild Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. Trump also helped fund Senator Dr. Rand Paul’s medical mission trip to Haiti.

The result of this growth and improvement of facilities is that Pignon can rightfully boast of the best healthcare in the country – the entire Caribbean.  Even so, there are building, staffing, and financial obstacles to overcome. 
 
The main hospital is still in need of services that we would consider necessary for basic healthcare.  To date, an adequate x-ray department, emergency room, and OBGYN/Pediatrics ward are still needed.  Ongoing training programs provide nursing, technical, and administrative personnel, but the difficulty lies in keeping them in Pignon when the temptation is to work in the bigger cities, or even to try to make it, one way or another, to the United States.

The Donald Answers Rob Lowe’s Call to Donate $5,000 to Haiti

When Rob Lowe appeared on “Extra “a couple of weeks ago to help raise money for homeless families in Haiti, the actor called on Donald Trump to buy his handprint artwork, saying, “I challenge Donald… I don’t need you as President, but I need you to buy my handprint to help 50,000 Haitian families.”

Lowe’s call has not gone unanswered. The billionaire placed a $5,000 bid on Rob’s Valspar Hands for Habitat handprint! When asked about his big purchase, Trump said, “I think Rob is terrific. I’ve watched him on television and he’s always had nice things to say about me. More importantly, I like his charity and the work he does.”

All proceeds from Trump’s bid, and proceeds from the auction of more than 30 other celebrity handprints go to Habitat’s rebuilding efforts in Haiti.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul brushed away suggestions that President Trump holds an anti-Haitian racial animus because he once supported Paul’s trip to the Caribbean to surgically treat poor Haitians. On NBC’s “Meet The Press “Sunday, Paul said that Trump had donated money to Paul before he became President. Paul performed around 200 operations on Haitians during his trip. The remarks were made days after Trump said that Haiti and some African countries are “shithole nations.”

This remark has led to an attack on Democratic legislators who call Trump a racist. Paul said that Congress wouldn’t help with a deal on immigration. “There are a lot of questions that this ultimately intersects with policy, and the only thing I regret from all of this, other than I think some people in the media have gone completely bonkers with, you know, just ad hominem on the president, I want to see an immigration compromise and you can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody is out there calling the president a racist,” he said.
