Our organization pursues the ideal that helping people is much more than binding a wound and giving a meal. We believe that teaching the Haitian people to help themselves by providing them with the tools necessary to propel them into leading prosperous and self-sufficient lives.
Our approach is to concentrate on one town at a time. Each town in Haiti should not be totally dependent upon one major city. Rebuilding the infrastructure, educating and providing local jobs based on the local resources will enable the people to gain the skill to improve their lives.
Every dollar that is given to Kindest Hearts goes straight to the people of Haiti. So you can rest assured in knowing that you will be actually creating a positive impact in the lives of the Haitian people.
Born in the late 1960’s in Haiti, Dr. Nicholas immigrated to the United States in 1982. She graduated from Erasmus Hall High School in Brooklyn, New York in 1984. She received a Bachelor’s of Science degree from St. Francis College in 1989 with minors in French and Philosophy. She further pursued a doctoral degree and graduated from the New York College of Podiatry Medicine in 1993 and completed her residency from Wyckoff Heights Medical Center. She met her husband of 26 years, Nigel, who is from Trinidad and Tobago, and they have 3 beautiful children.
She has a private practice in Wading River, New York. She is the President of the New York State Podiatric Medical Association. She also serves as an Elder at Grace and Truth Church in Coram, New York. She is Past President of the Caribbean American Medical and Scientific Association. Her heartstrings were tugged with the earthquake in Haiti. Busy with her private practice and family there was no reason to go. Most of her family had immigrated to the United States and Canada. Her love for a native country prevailed. She immediately sent emails out for donations to her professional colleagues. She left for Haiti a week later and went to the town of Leogane, one of the hardest hit areas. After many continuous visits to different towns in Haiti, Dr. Nicholas noticed that while in the town of O’Rouck that many families struggled with basic needs such as no running water, electricity, and even providing food for their children. The motivation to go back and help the people of Haiti change their lives was rooted.
