HFUSA provides tents in Gaza with $50,000 for HFUK

Humanity First USA’s partnership with Humanity First UK is providing critical relief for people in Palestine. This $50,000 will cover tents, coordination, and delivery to a camp for displaced people as part of the urgent HF global effort to provide 300 tents for shelter.

With the support of HFUSA, HFUK has already delivered food and supplies as people face severe shortages of food, water, and ways to keep warm. This aid included over 6,800 kilograms of staples and protein rich foods like rice, flour, beans, tuna, cheese, and more than 3,000 liters of water to help people survive. 1,200 jackets and blankets have also been provided to protect against the cold. Thank you to everyone who has donated to Palestine relief and who supported our contribution to this recent global campaign for tents.

These international partnerships allow us to mobilize and leverage resources anywhere in the world particularly in times of conflict and disaster.

An inspiring collaborative medical mission in Guyana is underway, led by the Humanity First Student Organization of the University of Toledo in partnership with HFUSA, HF Guyana, and the HFUSA Doctos4Humanity initiative.

665 people came to three days of medical camps at St. Cuthbert's Amerindian Village and police outposts in Georgetown. Patients had access to blood pressure screening, tests for sugar levels, doctor consultation, pharmacy, dental care, and optical services. In addition, the clinics guided patients through screenings for both cancer and HIV.

Beyond medical care, the camps offered food for 400 people, walkers to help with mobility, women’s hygiene kits, dental hygiene kits, Vitamin C, and donated eyeglasses. Students had collected, packed and brought the dental hygiene kits and eyeglasses with them for the mission.

Collaborations with The Ministry of Health, U.S. Embassy and Ambassador Nicole Theriot, Diamond Optical, Food for the Poor, Guyana Cancer Foundation, and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama'at Guyana helped bring this robust set of services to people this week.

Thank you to Nicole Theriot, US Ambassador to Guyana, for visiting the clinic and supporting our efforts!

Health care missions and camps as well as permanent clinics and hospitals under the Humanity FIrst Global Health program are a vital part of our 20 year journey to safeguard human life and dignity. Thank you to the Humanity First Student Division for leading this latest mission.
