Healthcare As A Human Right

Dear COHI Family,

Happy new year! 

As we begin this new decade, COHI is working tirelessly to create consistent and commited healthcare programming for asylum seekers in need at the Texas-Mexico border. Part of this commitment means ensuring that every person we work with has access to quality medical services, no matter what.

Carlos is one such person. Carlos is a non-verbal, non-ambulatory boy from Honduras. His father left home with him this past year in search of better health services fro his son. They are currently in Mexico, where they were introduced to COHI's partners: the Resource Center Matamoros. We have been able to get Carlos in to see a neurologist, where he was assessed quickly, given prescription medication, and is continuing to receive medical care.

As an organization that is committed to accessibility and equity, COHI works hard to ensure that we can support asylum seekers facing all kinds of medical issues. This means finding the best care for migrants - no matter the situation, no matter the resources. Healthcare is a human right. 

Join us in working to words a healthier, more equitable world by donating today.
