Maui Wildfire Response Update

Devastating wildfires ravaged Maui in August, causing extensive destruction, killing at least 115 people and displacing thousands more. Heart to Heart International’s Disaster Response Team immediately coordinated with multiple partners on the island, ultimately sending more than 4,000 hygiene kits in addition to medical supplies to four different organizations helping people impacted by these fires. Read more about our response and how we work to ensure the aid we send is requested and can be used by teams on the ground.

Helping Restore Quality of Life in Guatemala

Berta is a hardworking 41-year-old street vendor in Guatemala whose health challenges were making her daily life a struggle. Her constant headaches and fatigue made it hard for her to work, affecting her income and her family’s well-being. These symptoms were eventually diagnosed as indicators of thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, her community has limited resources and lacked affordable and accessible medication for individuals like Berta. Find out how HHI’s Access to Medicine program turned Berta’s life around. Read more!

Türkiye Hygiene Kit Distribution

An earthquake measuring 7.8 on the Richter scale struck Türkiye and Syria in February, killing nearly 60,000 people and left millions displaced. More than 1.5 million are still displaced in Türkiye and living in large tent communities with poor sanitation conditions. We were told: “hygiene kits are desperately needed in Türkiye.”

Through our partnership with Global Empowerment Mission, thousands of these families received hygiene kits, which provided critical basic care and hygiene items. Read more!
