    Can provide study materials and books for 1 healthcare trainee
    Will provide medical training kits for 1 healthcare trainee (suture kit, bandages, slings, tools etc...)

    Summary
    Rochester GlobeMed has partnered the Social Organization for Voluntary Action (SOVA) located in rural Odisha, India. The Healthcare Duty Assistant Training program created by SOVA aims to educate local youth through hands-on career training. This program takes place at the Srimula Public Health Center where 30 young trainees, ages 14-22, are given medical instruction over a 3-month period. With your financial support we can empower young leaders in the poorest villages of Odisha.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    There are 1.1 million people living in poverty in the rural Dhenkanal district of Odisha, India. With this dense population size, the ratio of medical staff to impoverished individuals is extremely disproportional. Imagine being in medical distress and traveling miles to a facility where no one attends to your needs. This is a reality in the remote rural areas of Dhenkanal. This program will enable local youth to directly serve their communities to replenish the shortage of medical assistants.

    Activities
    This program will provide free medical education for young adults not only to bridge the medical gap, but to break the cycle of poverty they face by providing employment opportunity. SOVA will provide hands-on training in basic medical tasks, pre-natal care and community-based health approaches in Srimula. After training, these 30 young adults will in turn earn a sustainable salary and serve the communities in which they live. Thus, producing a generation of skilled and empowered young leaders.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The Medical Assistant Training Program will effectively fill the lack of medical staff in Community Health Centers and hospitals in the Dhenkanal district. This program will run in 3-month cycles with 4 batches of 30 trainees, yielding a total of 120 skilled medical assistants a year. With this projected growth in medical staff, emergency healthcare will become accessible to members of the most remote villages. In addition, young adults will have a sustainable income to support their families.

    Summary
    For over five months All Hands Volunteers has been working hard to provide immediate assistance to communities in Fiji affected by category 5 Cyclone Winston. To date we have been able to provide household emergency hygiene and sanitation solutions in over 18 different villages. This intervention is crucial in order to prevent the spread of life-threatening disease, but with 28,000 homes damaged or destroyed, the needs are still great.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Thought to be one of the strongest storms ever recorded in the Southern Hemisphere, Cyclone Winston struck Fiji February 20, 2016, bringing winds of over 320km/h (200mph), torrential rain and waves of up to 12m (40ft). Fijian officials declared a 30-day state of natural disaster and report that the direct impact of the storm flattened numerous buildings, decimated countless villages and left almost 50,000 people sheltering in evacuation centers.

    Activities
    This project serves to provide funding for the volunteers on the ground still responding to this devastating disaster. Since February, All Hands has been on the ground providing much needed support and assistance to the Fijian people. Rubble removal, demolition of destroyed homes and building of emergency latrine systems are some of the many ways that All Hands is able to lend support. In order to continue to assist the community we need more funding and volunteers!

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In the past couple of months All Hands Volunteers has been able to construct 212 latrine and toilet systems. 1,064 individuals now have access to latrines, toilets or bathing structures. 485 people now have access to hand washing facilities as well. 127 families now have access to solar-powered lights to increase safety at night. Strides continue to be made as more individuals and families gain access to basic necessities through the assistance of All Hands.

  • Provide Shoes to Poor Children

    will provide a pair of shoes + socks for one child
    will provide a pair of shoes + socks + tie + belt + ID card for one child
    will provide a pair of shoes + socks + tie + belt + ID card + school bag for one child

    give now

    Summary
    Children attending Government Schools in India are from very poor families. Parents can not even afford a pair of school shoes for their children. Though shoes alone do not solve problems they face, but we all agree that it helps children build their self-esteem and give hope. A pair of shoes will ensure a child's feet are protected from infection and injuries. A child in full uniform attending school is a delight to watch. We wish to give them ties, belt and ID cards as well.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    It is a common site to see children walking to Government schools without even slippers, not to talk of shoes. Many kids end up with diseases that kill or seriously threaten their health, because of a disease or fungus they picked up while walking barefoot to school. Providing school shoes for needy students is an effective way to provide protection to their feet on their way to school and instill a sense of hope.

    Activities
    A modest gift will ensure a child's feet will be protected from the hardness of the roads, injuries and infection. Children are less likely to skip classes if they are provided good attire. It gives them the chance to walk with pride alongside more privileged students. Finally, If the child comes with shoes, belt, tie, it would be a delight to watch for the parents and teachers.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    The project will provide 600 pairs of shoes to needy children in Government schools, mostly living in Gowdavally Village, an impoverished neighborhood. Children will feel happier coming to school wearing shoes and stay fit. It will reduce the financial burden of parents who might be feeling sad about not providing shoes for their kids. Finally, the school authorities will be happy to see their wards dressed well.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Many youths in Sofia are in real danger of health problems, social exclusion, addictions, criminal acts. They don't have society and family support, information and opportunity to build their own culture in a healthy environment. Family, school, internet - where they spend the majority of their time, are very often incapable of building adequate health and social behavioral models. Therefore different approaches to influence these individuals and to motivate them are desperately needed.

    Activities
    IPDY matches theoretical and practical work with youths to improve their health status, social alternative & integration, development opportunities, etc; Our experienced staff will consult and work with disadvantaged youths from periphery areas of Sofia - where crime and immoral activities are high, information and alternatives are low, there is not "space" for self-development and realization. Through IPDY we create a community for new development, new way and new chance for every youth.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    Participants have completely new social life alternative and chances to express themselves and develop their health, personal and sports potentials & talents. IPDY - but mostly individual approach, is the best tool to fight a wide variety of important social problems. It certainly has the potential to improve participants' health status, social inclusion options, physical culture, mental stability, self-esteem, capabilities for teamwork, anti-discrimination practices, social behaviour, etc.

    give now

    Summary
    One in every five children in Haiti die before the age of five. Out of those who die, 60 percent are under one year old. God's Littlest Angels set up a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in Haiti in 1994. Very few medical programs had programs for these tiny babies. The premature and malnourished infants were not given much hope. Today, GLA offers IV therapy, Incubators, oxygen and CPAP therapy and offer their services to the community free of charge.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Many Haitian doctors feel that it is survival of the healthiest here in Haiti. Premature babies require a lot of care and money to get them healthy and able to return home with their family. Most programs in Haiti target children over one year old. We believe all children should be given a chance and GLA focuses on those children who are premature, malnourished and abandoned.

    Activities
    We provide free health care to families in the community with no way of paying for medical services especially when they have infants who are premature or malnourished. The mothers are required to help with their infant's care so that they learn how to care for these babies who have special needs due to their prematurity.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    We can educate families how to care for their infants and help them understand the causes of premature infants and malnutrition among babies. Long term benefits to the community of better nutrition among the children and understanding ways of preventing premature and malnourished infants will benefit them all.

  • Home Sanitation for 20 families in Indravanam
    project picture
    Will buy the Toilet and the Wash Basin for 1 toilet
    Will buy Roof Sheet and Paint for 1 toilet
    Will buy Sceptic Tank and Pipe fittings for 1 toilet

    give now

    Summary
    Many families in rural India do not have a toilet or running water in their home or village. People typically use the fields and bushes: this can lead to diseases, infections and the possibility of snake bites. Nandri aims to provide 20 families with a toilet in the home in the village of Indravanam. The Indian government will provide a grant of 50% of the cost.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    In 2015, a study has claimed around 60% of Indians do not have access to safe and private toilets. Open defecation encourages the transmission of many infectious diseases including cholera, typhoid, hepatitis, polio, cryptosporidiosis, and ascariasis. Diarrhea - a disease directly related to poor sanitation - kills one child every 20 seconds, i.e. more than 4,000 children everyday. Besides, women going to the fields early on the morning or after dark are more susceptible to snake bites.

    Activities
    In 2014, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat Mission, a national campaign aiming to eradicate open defecation by 2019. Active in the Tamil Nadu region for over 15 years, Nandri will contribute to this challenge in the village of Indravanam. Building toilets will reduce the incidence of diseases and snake bites while giving families self-respect and better health.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    In 2010, sanitation has been recognized as a human right and access to sanitation is imperative for health, education and dignity. The Indian government will provide 50% of the costs and the family will repay the balance of the costs within 12 months. An additional 20 families will benefit from this project every year.

    Summary
    In Lebanon, the large majorities of refugees live outside of the capital and are unable to access humanitarian help or basic services. Unregistered refugees are deprived of relief assistance, children can't attend school, infectious diseases are widespread in the densely populated informal settlements. With a well equiped bus, we bring our team of psychologists, doctors, social workers and animators to help to improve the situation, find emergency solutions and focus on children and families.

    Project Needs and Beneficiaries
    Secluded from any assistance, often unable or not allowed to work, many Syrian families are confined in camps with no prospects of a normal life. This difficult situation can lead to severe mental and physical health issues for both adults and children.

    Activities
    To counter this problem, Insan operates a mobile bus which welcomes and entertains up to 100 children at a time. The bus is adequately equipped to provide medical, psychological & social consultations for adults and children. With a diverse team of psychologists, doctors, social workers & animators, the bus assists the neediest refugees in the most remote areas. Refugee families recieve regular medical check ups, group & individual psychological support, as well as entertainment.

    Potential Long Term Impact
    This project will significantly improve the mental, physical, social and psychological health of refugees, children and marginalized populations in rural areas in Lebanon. By satisfying some of their most basic human needs, we empower refugees to build a better future for themselves and their families.
