Finding a Home in a Pandemic

Dear COHI Family,

We write to you with the Coronavirus Pandemic still looming ominously around us. As a public health non-profit, used to zipping around the world and visiting healthcare facilities across the globe, it has been an unprecedented time of stagnation and isolation.

So, we have decided to make an impact wherever we can and however we can. This has meant sending reproductive health supplies to Honduras and medical supplies to Mexico. It has also meant reaching out a little closer to home...

COHI recently launched our COVID-19 Fund, a pot of money that will be used to solve the physical and mental healthcare needs of migrant women and children in and around Austin and San Antonio. Whether it's visiting a child psychologist to begin the trauma healing process, connecting with an midwife while in the last term of pregnancy, or receiving prescriptions for a longstanding illness - COHI will be working with these families to cover the costs and connect them with trusted healthcare workers in the area.

Will you join us in our community response to this seemingly endless pandemic?

In gratitude,

COHI Staff & Board
