It is our pleasure to introduce you to Vanessa, the founder of COHI’s partner in Puerto Rico, CentroMAM. CentroMAM is an organization we are so proud to support, as they lead the way on the island toward positioning Puerto Rican women as leaders in the long recovery from Hurricane Maria.
Vanessa and CentroMAM have truly made lemonade out of lemons. Puerto Rico has one of the highest maternal and infant death rates in the US and one of the highest cesarean section rates. CentroMAM is leading the way on the island in changing the health care system by training Puerto Rican doulas to care for Puerto Rican families and by providing the island’s premiere birth center, where families have a choice and some control over the kind of care they receive.
But don’t take my word for it. Want to know more about what our work looked like as we responded to Hurricane Maria? Watch the video and hear about our shared impact directly from Vanessa herself.
It is our pleasure to introduce you to Anas at the Iman Hospital in Aleppo. We met him during our work in Greece several years ago while we were both caring for refugees there. We were impressed with his professionalism and deep commitment to caring for Middle Eastern refugees. Our appreciation for him deepened when he went above and beyond the call of our partnership as he helped our COHI team get out of the country during a military coup when the borders closed a few years ago. He is an all-around outstanding man, and we are so proud to support him and his team.
Want to know more about what Anas, COHI, and YOU did to keep the last specialty Pediatric and Maternity hospital in West Aleppo open this year? Watch the video and hear about our shared impact directly from Anas.
We want to be able to continue to show up for the brave Syrian mothers, children and health care providers caring for them—and we can’t do it without your help. A donation from you to support this work would be a tremendous way to close out our 2018 fundraising, gifting COHI a strong start to meeting this 2019 goal. You’ve already demonstrated your commitment to the people of Syria; how about closing out 2018 with an action that helps to extend COHI’s work into 2019?
Supporting moms and babies in Syria has been one of COHI's top priorities for the last few years. We are committed to funding one of the last hospitals and we love the mission of Human Appeal. They are:
Working across the globe to strengthen humanity in the face of poverty, social injustice and natural disaster. Through the provision of immediate relief and establishment of self sustaining development programmes, we aim to invest in real, effective solutions.
We appreciate our partners so much and nothing helps more than sending them the funds they need to keep their clinics and hospital open. Thank you for your support!
