Fond-des-Blancs is a communal section located in the Sud department of Haiti in the Aquin Arrondissement. It is the home of many people of Polish descent who have fought for the Haitian resistance during the Napoleonic Wars, after switching sides from fighting within the French regiments. They were offered Haitian citizenship after the rebellion was over.
Fond-des-Blancs is home to St. Boniface Hospital, the largest full-service hospital open to all patients in the south of Haiti. It does not charge a fee for patients who cannot afford to pay. It offers maternal and neonatal health services, general surgery, emergency care, and inpatient and outpatient clinics for adults and children. It also runs one of the few inpatient spinal cord injury rehabilitation programs in the country. St. Boniface Hospital is operated by the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation, and run by a staff that is 98% Haitian.
