GHC delivered kits to Nepal in October!

Dear very valued donor,

Two years ago, GHC personally delivered clean birth kits to Ghorka Hospital, located at the epicenter of the 2015 earthquake, and we promised at that time to return. On Wed., October 3rd, GHC fulfilled that promise as we returned with 100 more kits to be delivered in a community where 40% of the births happen at home and without access to clean supplies. These kits were assembled by nurse graduates at St. Mary Mercy Hospital in Livonia, Michigan, who chose to assemble these kits as part of their service project.

300 Clean Birth Kits were also delivered to the Mayor of Dang via Rapti Academy of Health Sciences, and will be distributed via health outposts in Nepal.

October has also been very busy, as we are planning for GHC's Annual Gala, "Let Life Bloom"  on Friday, October 12th at the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle in MIchigan! 

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support and generosity!

Midway through the year!

Dear very valued donor,

It's June, and we are excited to announce that, in large part thanks to you, Global Health Charities was recently able to donate 1,500 Clean Birth Kits to women and infants in Zambia through the Catholic Medical Mission Board. We are very excited for the CMMB partnership and the ability to impact so many women and infants.

In the Spring, we were also able to send 1,000 kits to eleven clinics in Nigeria through the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul. This is the second shipment to the sisters, who had reported that the kits had been very useful in the maternity clinics. Our work with the Daughters of Charity was featured inThe Michigan Catholic --please see the link below!

We look forward to planning for several upcoming assemblies:

  • Vacation Bible School at Our Lady of Sorrows Parish - Clean Birth Kit assembly

  • SERVE students, Ann Arbor (3 days of volunteer work, will include a Clean Birth Kit assembly)

  • International School of Bangkok high school reunion - Clean Birth Kit assembly

We are also getting ready to launch our GHC Birthday Club! We ask donors to consider donating just $10 per month every month. Every month, you will know you are helping a mother and her infant in another country experience a clean birth! Small donation; huge impact.

Lastly, we are busy planning for GHC's Annual Gala on Friday, October 12th at the Detroit Yacht Club on Belle Isle in MIchigan! SAVE THE DATE if you are able to attend, and email us for more info: smcadams@globalhealthcharities.org.

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support and generosity!

A great start to 2018!

Greetings dear donor, 

2018 has already been a great year at GHC! 

GHC hit a big target we've been working on for the past few years. With YOUR help, we have now assembled over 10,000 Clean Birth Kits!

It's also been a great year as we've worked with wonderful partners to assemble and distribute more kits to the women and infants who can most benefit from them. The feedback on our CBK program has been motivating and inspires us to work even harder!

In the past three months, GHC has conducted "Clean Birth Kit" assemblies at:

  • Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Farmington, MI, with guests from the South Oakland Shelter program
  • Detroit Catholic Central High School HOSA Club Students
  • Hope Lutheran Church Middle School and High School Youth Groups

Kits have been shipped out!

  • 500 kits were distributed through a small group of Catholic sisters in Borongan, Eastern Samar, Phillipines
  • 1,000 Clean Birth Kits are on their way to 11 maternity clinics in Nigeria throught the Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul (International Project Services).
  • 50 kits were distributed in Hanoi, Vietnam
  • 50 kits were distributed in Mirebalais, Haiti 

Again, thank your for your support--GHC would not be able to accomplish our goals without people like you!

Warmest regards,

Patricia Williams, Founder and President
