So far this year we’ve helped distribute approximately $550,000 worth of medical supplies (US wholesale value) mostly in Honduras but also in Guatemala, Haiti, Uganda, Mexico and America! Some highlights are that we helped reach almost 9,000 pregnant and lactating women with prenatal multivitamins, 400,000 children with antihelminthic medicine (albendazole, take that worms!), and helping to build a clinic to defeat the tuberculosis. This year we are reaching about half a million people, crazy huh?!
It is only thanks to amazing partners, teachers and YOU! DOERS works with other NGO’s and the public sector to improve efficiency and access to healthcare around the world. Lately we’ve been trying to learn how to help locally so there are nascent domestic projects which are kind of exciting.
