Rima: Medicine Making a Difference in Syria

Following the devastating earthquake on February 6 in Syria and Turkey, Heart to Heart International sent critical medicines and supplies to numerous organizations, including Multifaith Alliance to distribute to thousands of people in need. One of the recipients of the medical aid was Rima Hassoun (pictured right), a remarkable woman who faced numerous challenges after the earthquake. Discover how Rima’s life took a positive turn, thanks to the provision of essential medications and support from Multifaith Alliance and HHI. Her story is a testament to the profound impact of humanitarian aid on individuals facing immense difficulties. Read more here!

Collaborating with GEHA for Community Health

Recently HHI began a collaboration with GEHA, which generously awarded our Community Health program a grant to bring A1c testing to the Kansas City community. We also welcomed 29 people from the finance department at GEHA for a collaborative hygiene kit build, resulting in the creation of 1,350 kits. By working together, we are helping strengthen community health in Kansas City.

Preparations for WHO Verification

Our Disaster Response Team continues working toward achieving our goal of becoming a World Health Organization (WHO) Type-1 Mobile Emergency Medical Team. We are excited to be in the final stages of receiving this world-class disaster global classification awarded by the WHO. This process involves many steps and years of work. One of our final steps was to set up practice field medical clinic and base camp. We invite you to get a behind the scenes look as disaster response volunteers and staff practiced this important step.
