Hurricane Harvey update

So far, Circle of Health International (COHI) has given out 255 cash grants to Hurricane Harvey evacuees. We have also distributed thousands of pounds of supplies including food, clothing, diapers, and menstrual hygiene items. The number of people impacted by our grants and supplies is over 1000. Much of this work was accomplished because we were able to hire an Evacuee Coordinator who is an evacuee herself.

COHI wants to continue to help those affected by Harvey. Some of what we hope to accomplish in the work ahead:

  • Continued support for vulnerable female evacuees through:
    • Medical referrals
    • Cash grants
    • Supplies
    • Medicine

Report- Assisting Syrians on the Move

"Over the last several years, direct, targeted attacks on health care institutions that are clearly civilian facilities have escalated greatly," says Dr. Michael Van Rooyen, an emergency physician and the director of Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, "and Syria's been the most notable and notorious example."
COHI supports one of the remaining hospital networks operating in Aleppo and Idlib left to care for the citizens in the cities and surrounding rural areas, which has been a theater of war. Due to frequent hospital bombings, there are incredibly limited resources for mothers and infants to receive healthcare, and general supplies are low.
COHI and partner organization Human Appeal are committed to delivering much needed supplies, resources and support to the last health care center in the region. Human Appeal’s hospital served a community of over 200,000. Now, we can expect it to be much, much higher.
Due to the forced evacuation and continued airstrikes, Human Appeal has branched out its healthcare services, providing a health clinic in rural western Aleppo, a mobile clinic designed to reach those on the move from conflict and a permanent hospital in Idlib, where most Aleppo refugees have relocated.
This is a fragile arrangement, with ambulances taking critical cases such as emergency cesarean sections and infants in need of neonatal incubators from the field services to Idlib. Additionally, they can no longer provide nutritional meals to their patients or their families, meaning harder recoveries and higher malnutrition-related health complications.
So far, COHI has raised $100,000 to continue to sustain this valuable healthcare resource for those who remain inside war-torn Aleppo. However, additional funding is needed to continue the level of care provided in these units, as well as restart their nutritional program.
