The unfortunate passing of several members of the Beliard family, Fatima Group employees, and other close friends from cancer, led to the creation of the Foundation.
The idea to create the Foundation was conceived in 2012. Between 2012-2014 efforts were made to legally and structurally set up the Foundation. In 2015, the Foundation became legally registered in Haiti.
What are your thoughts on the importance of treating cancer and paying attention to cancer in Haiti and specifically in Cap–Haïtien?
Do you view cancer as a personal problem in your life and your family’s life or a public health problem?
You’ve told me that you feel hopeless about cancer in Haiti. Can you expand on that?
