Join us as we walk for our global community….from afar!
Right now, we are coming to the realization that we are only as healthy as our community. Concern America, trains people to provide health care in their remote communities in Guatemala, Colombia, and Mexico. 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.
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 $11,000, enough to fully train 11 health practitioners, which means 11 communities (7,00 people) now have access to care. This year, it’s been changed to a virtual Walk Where You Are, so we will each be doing something from afar.
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. 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!
