Providing Powdered Infant Formula to Vulnerable Malnourished Haitian Life.

Building an Orphanage

Formula for Life was founded in 2007 by biology major, Cortney Shepard (now a medical student at Midwestern University - Chicago School of Osteopathic Medicine).  Each year a team of students coordinates fundraising events that have raised more than $150,000 in money and supplies.  Our main mission is to provide for the nutritional and residential needs of the orphans of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Orphanage in northern Haiti.  Construction of a self-sufficient orphanage on 15 acres of land that will be a home for 80 orphans began in December 2013.  Our main fundrasing event is a spring 5K run/walk that attracts both competitive runners and casual walkers.  For more information contact Dr. Obringer at or Like us on Facebook (Formula for Life).  Give online, select Formula for Life.
