Join us as we walk, ride, dance, and play so that communities build skills to provide vital health care services, clean water and more. Concern America trains people to become their own health care providers in remote communities in Guatemala, Colombia, and Mexico. These community health practitioners, many with little formal education, are able to treat 80% of the health needs in their communities, including diabetes care, tendon repairs, malaria treatment, and so much more.
Now, more than ever, communities are relying on local health care providers for care and we need to ensure they are able to continue their work. As we do each year, our family is participating in the annual Walk Out of Poverty, which raises funds to support these efforts. Last year, our team raised over $8,000, enough to fully train 8 health practitioners, which means 5,000 people now have access to care. This year, it’s been changed to a virtual Walk Where You Are again, so we will each be doing something from afar.
Please consider supporting us in this Walk! If you’d prefer to send a check to Concern America, mail to P.O. Box 1790 Santa Ana, CA 92702 (Saydak Sisters in memo line).
Whether it be $5 or $500 or just even sending good wishes, your support makes a difference! And thank you to the many who have already given!
From all of our team,
