Dear COHI Family,

Can you believe the world we're living in right now? Hurricanes, wildfires, and tornadoes - natural disasters happening left and right. And on top of all that, there's a global pandemic with no concrete end in sight. It's enough to get you feeling downtrodden, hopeless, and lost.

Here at COHI, when we begin feeling this way, we try to focus instead on the amazing healthcare professionals we work with. People who are risking their own livelihood in order to keep others safe. But what if they didn't have to?

Right now, COHI is raising funds to begin a Telehealth program at our partner birth clinic in Puerto Rico. These birth workers are used to working in extreme conditions - having continued to provide care during and after Hurricane Maria. But COVID has presented a new type of danger. That's why we're so excited to implement this Telehealth program, which will allow the birth workers and their clients (from all across the island!) to meet without risking anyone's safety.

But we need your help to make it a reality!

In gratitude,

COHI Staff & Board

Dear COHI Family,

Our partners in Puerto Rico are working hard to create safe medical spaces for their patients. CentroMAM, our partner birth clinic, is preparing maternal health kits that are delivered to patients. These include supplies and medicines that allow CentroMAM's midwives to conduct safe and effective telehealth appointments, keeping the mothers, babies, and medical workers safe from the pandemic. 

We are so proud to be partnering with a birth clinic that is fueled by a team of passionate, expert midwives who served displaced mothers across the island. And we want to keep them safe. That's why we're raising the funds needed go get them all the Personal Protective Equipment they need to keep working in the field.

Will you join us?

In gratitude,

COHI Staff & Board
