Hurricane Harvey update

2017 proved to be a horrific season for storms in the United States. It was the first time COHI experienced a disaster so close to our headquarters, and it was both a challenge and an honor to be able to help our neighbors who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.

As we mentioned in earlier reports, we hired one of the hurricane refugees to help us distribute all of the cash gifts that were made possible by your generous donations. And we're happy to announce that we've hired her on to help us with our Texas advocacy program in 2018!

One of the remaining gaps in care in Texas is contraception access for refugees- and that's what we're hoping to accomplish in 2018. We welcome your help!

Thanks so much for your continued support!

Northern California Wildfires Report

Three months after an onslaught of blazes first ignited in Northern California’s famed wine country, Circle of Health International has raised $10,481.00 with your help.

You made this happen!

Your donations mean so much. Thanks to you, pregnant women and families with medically fragile kids or newborns, will receive support for their ongoing needs.

We are in touch with our allies in Northern California to give out cash grants to vulnerable women and their families. We are working in partnership with a local group called UndocuFund that priorities undocumented women and children in its programming.  

COHI wants to continue to help expectant mothers, families with newborns, families with medically fragile kids, and members of the LGBTQ community who need alternative places to stay. Here’s some of what we hope to accomplish in the year ahead:

  • Provide financial assistance for medical care and counseling services.
  • Provide financial assistance for housing and transportation costs accrued by vulnerable women and children.

Thank you for your continued generosity! With your support, we will prioritize support for California’s climate refugees and  accomplish our impact goals this year.

We hope you will support COHI in our efforts to show up for those in Northern California in need.

Update on Women's Health in Puerto Rico

10 days after Hurricane Maria made landfall in Puerto Rico on September 20, COHI’s 1st field team arrived to distribute maternal and newborn related healthcare supplies and to support local midwives.

With your help, we successfully transported 4,000 pounds of supplies, including syringes,  gauze, speculums, gowns, pads and diapers, and delivered them to our partners in Centro MAM (Mujeres Ayudando Madres). Two separate clinical teams including OB/GYNs and midwives have provided upwards 100 prenatal and postnatal visits and organized the intake of a women's health assessment.  We have also distributed $5000 in cash grants given to the island’s midwives and $60,000 worth of essential medicines were provided to women’s and newborn health clinics across Puerto Rico.

You made this happen!

Your donations mean so much. Thanks to you, pregnant women and new mothers will receive care from midwives trained to deliver babies under crisis conditions. We are in touch with local midwives to support their ongoing needs.

COHI wants to continue to help women and children affected by Hurricane Maria. Here’s some of what we hope to accomplish in the year ahead:

  • 5,000 women and children provided with direct clinical care.
  • 5 new cash grants given to local birth and maternity centers to help with disaster related costs.
  • 100 cash grants given to local pregnant/expectant mothers and families with newborns.
  • Provide financial assistance for medical care and counseling services.
  • Provide financial assistance for housing and transportation costs accrued by vulnerable women and children.
  • Provide direct clinical, maternal and newborn healthcare.

Thank you for your continued generosity! With your support, we hope to continue funding Centro MAM for women and newborns in the area and accomplish our impact goals this year.
