Newsletter | #GivingTuesday 2022

Give a gift this Tuesday
29 November is #GivingTuesday – a global day of giving (the Tuesday after Thanksgiving), aiming to inspire millions of people to give, collaborate and celebrate generosity

This giving season, would you be willing to donate to empower communities to put the reality of better health in their own hands?

Your support can enable community health workers to extend basic health services to remote communities, promote good nutrition, sanitation and hygiene and provide the knowledge and resources they need to bridge the gap many families face in accessing health services.

Read on for our latest updates and find out how community-led solutions can help ensure access to essential, lifesaving healthcare is a reality for everyone.
Why we must increase support for community health workers
Community health worker
The World Health Organization estimates that the global shortage of health workers is likely to reach 18 million by 2030

A third of that shortage – six million health workers – will be in Africa alone. Community health workers live within hard-to-reach communities and are trained and equipped to diagnose and treat common, preventable, diseases. They are known and trusted by the people they serve and can provide advice and treatment at no cost.

This giving season, your donation can support this first line of defence, ensuring that those most vulnerable to disease, especially children, don’t become another statistic.
