THE HEART FUND AMBASSADOR, JIMMY JEAN-LOUIS TALKS ABOUT HAITI AND THE HEART FUND IN FORBES MAGAZINES
FORBES Magazine, USA 


"As Haitians, we must come together to foster this budding hope and ensure it continues to grow.  We cannot afford to be divided as we face the challenges ahead: creating jobs, repairing damaged and building new infrastructure, eliminating child exploitation, creating after-school programs for children and youth, providing education and access to quality healthcare, reducing insecurity, developing tourism, and ensuring political stability and government transparency. We have our work cut out for us.


With Hollywood Unites for Haiti, we are working to do our part.  We have built a school in Petionville’s isolated Cadet area where access to the rest of the city is difficult, and almost no basic services are available. I know this area well because it is near where I would visit my grandparents when I was a boy. Today, about 130 children of all ages are receiving free education and one hot meal a day.  The school is powered by solar energy and in time we hope to make more improvements.


In partnerships with The Heart Fund, a French non-profit that fights cardiovascular disease, we are also drawing attention to the issue of healthcare access and heart disease prevention.  Through our partnership, we bring heart specialists to provide specialized care to vulnerable, ill children, and perform difficult surgeries in partnership with local private clinics and doctors.”

GARY DOURDAN - THE HEART FUND AMBASSADOR -

Heart & Soul Magazine, USA | by Naja Hill

Along with the many causes for which he advocates, Dourdan is specially proud of being appointed as an ambassador to The Heart Fund, an organization spearheaded by David Luu, a heart surgeon who is building a hospital to administer risky heart surgeries to children in Haiti. 

" I am working my way back to getting respect from a lot of people. i bow down to everything that Doctor Luu is doing". He smiled every time he mentioned Doctor Luu and i could see he was both proud and grateful to be able to give awareness to such a worthy cause. " What Doctor Luu is doing is extraordinary" noted Dourdan. "He has cut the cost of a major heart surgery for the people in Haiti"

Le producteur Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, Sin CIty) & AMD ont permis de financer l’opération d’un enfant haïtien atteint d’une malformation cardiaque, lors du Festival de Cannes 2012. Un grand merci pour leur générosité et leur grand coeur.
