Final CARS Report

Dearest CARS supporters,

Over these past several months, COHI has been so thrilled and appreciative to work alongside you all in order to provide accessible mobile health care to migrants and refugees wandering through Greece. We have finally reached a point that we feel comfortable with letting this vehicle drive itself. All it needed was a good push from folks like you to get the wheels turning!

The MamaMobile has found a new home in Drama Camp, located just northwest of Thessaloniki - Greece's second largest city. Our partners at Team Kitrinos Health Care will continue to operate the program and provide the maternal, pediatric and family health care that we and our beneficiaries so cherish. As an officially registered program, CARS will be able to continue its meaningful work without obstruction from Greek authorities. This will be paramount in ensuring a long-lasting and impactful program.

During our involvement in CARS, COHI has helped achieve the following:

  • Providing comprehensive health care to approximately 4,300 migrants/refugees.
  • Gathering the initial funding needed to initiate the program.
  • Locating and selecting the vehicle that would later become the MamaMobile.
  • Ensuring a safe space for camp population of over 6,000 women and children.
  • Procuring and delivering a total of $12,000 worth of medication.

This program has truly made a positive impact on a great many people. Unfortunately, the current refugee diaspora in Europe has no immediate end in sight which is why we so strongly urge our followers to stay involved and remain invested. Whether it be with COHI or another like-minded organization, the work being done in the field so greatly depends on folks like you. Thank you for caring about these people in need. While many of them may never know your names, they do know that there are people in this world who care for them. 

With the deepest respect, we thank you once more for your participation in this program. You have done a wonderful thing. 

Most sincerely,

The COHI Team
