About Us


 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.  

Make a Difference

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.

Founder/President – Dr. Patricia Nicholas

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.
