Happy New Year from Heart to Heart International!

It’s 2024, and we’re bursting with energy (and maybe a few extra holiday cookies) to keep helping people in need around the world. And we couldn’t do it without YOU! Your belief in our mission and your generous support fuel our every step, turning your donations into life-changing aid for families facing hardship.

We’re kicking off the year with some incredible initiatives that you can learn more about below, plus all our ongoing programs are in full swing! From delivering vital medicines to supporting disaster-affected communities, we’re working to make a difference every day.

But remember, none of it is possible without your support. Every dollar donated, every hour volunteered, every kind word said keeps us going. So, a giant THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts (and cookie-filled bellies)!

Feminine Hygiene for Women and Girls in Gaza

The recent surge in violence in Gaza has displaced 1.9 million people, leaving countless families, particularly women and children, in dire need. Amidst this devastating crisis, Heart to Heart International is providing critical support, focusing on ensuring access to essential hygiene supplies, including 1.7 million menstrual pads for women and girls in Gaza.

During times of displacement and turmoil, simple items like pads, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes can make a world of difference, restoring a sense of normalcy and self-care when so much is lost. You can help support this vital effort to provide dignity and health to women and girls.
