Your participation will help us raise awareness and funds to combat maternal malnutrition where we work.
We have worked across North and Central America, eastern and western Africa, the Middle East and Asia, and have witnessed malnutrition in every form, and we've seen just how detrimental it is to the health of women and newborns.
Pregnancy is already difficult in these hard places. Sustaining life on a limited diet is strenuous on both mother and babe, and malnutrition causes pregnancy complications, low birth weight, and increased risk of both maternal and infant mortality.
Circle of Health International (COHI) aligns itself with local, community based organizations led and powered by women. We respond to the requests of these leaders, who are best suited to know and advise on the needs of the women and children that they serve.
COHI aims to support these local partners through our provision of professional and clinical volunteers, medical and community capacity training, the procurement of requested and appropriate supplies and equipment, and by raising funds for the organizations to provide the services that women and children require.
