Medical brigades in Guatemala

Our local partners in Guatemala have been continuing their efforts with medical brigades. Recently, they targeted the municipality of Coatepeque, which is 235 kilometers from Guatemala City. Because their efforts in that area are ongoing, the vision is to continue to provide medical assistance and follow up with as many individuals as possible. The team serves approximately 1,000 patients per month with resources received through your generous donations.  Just as is in Coatepeque, the team continues to follow up with the many children and adults they serve in Jalapa, a small village of  ...

Honoring grandpa through the True Health Foundation

Throughout the course of my Eagle Project, I have been greatly blessed by family, friends, and other contributors. My project consisted of gathering dental hygiene donations from various sources, packing them up in kits, and sending them to an orphanage in Mexico with the True Health Foundation. Why I chose this project The main reason I wanted to do this project was to honor my grandfather, who was a dentist in Logan, Utah. He loved to serve and help people through his skills in dentistry. My mom often recalls times when my grandpa would give free dental care to those who were in need of  ...

Huracán Matthew

El país más pobre de las Américas ha recibido un golpe directo de la peor tormenta ocurrida en el Caribe en la última década.  Ciudades y poblados completos fueron totalmente arrasados.  Cientos de personas resultaron muertas y miles fueron desplazadas.  Se cree que el huracán Matthew, una tormenta categoría 4, causó la muerte de al menos 900 personas en Haití durante los siete días que mantuvo su fuerza como huracán. Haití, uno de los países más pobres del mundo, no ha podido recuperarse por completo del terremoto que en 2010 mató a miles de personas, ni de la epidemia de cólera que  ...

颶風馬修

美洲最貧窮的國家遭受到十年來最強烈加勒比海風暴的重創。許多村莊和城鎮完全被夷平,數百人死亡,成千上萬人流離失所。強度四級的颶風馬修在海地七天內強度未絲毫減弱,據信共奪去至少900條生命。 世界上最貧窮國家之一的海地一直沒有從2010年造成數千人死亡的地震中完全恢復,接著是霍亂傳染病。2010年有20萬人死亡,成千上萬的人至今無家可歸,在颶風馬修來襲前仍然以帳篷為家。海地最近又經歷了另一次霍亂疫情。 霍亂 霍亂是一種急性腹瀉疾病,如果不治療,可在數小時內死亡;它是因攝入被霍亂弧菌所污染的食物或水而引起的腸道感染。隨著該地區最近發生的疫情,海地的醫生現在警告可能會發生一場霍亂危機,這場危機可能會比風暴本身造成更大比例人口的死亡。 我們如何回應? USANA真正健康基金會致力成為全世界最有效率的災難救助者。經過一些時間觀察情況並評估最有效使用您捐款的方法之後,我們現在決定通過我們的合作夥伴「兒童飢餓基金會」提供$40,000美元的援助。這筆款項將用於經由墨西哥灣的港口運送添加了維生素的食物包和大量緊急救難用品。兒童飢餓基金會過去七年來一直在海地從事慈善活動,通過其現有的網絡,使得分發這些用品給最需要的人的工作更加容易。  ...
