Mama Sabina Delivers a Healthy Baby Girl
Our shipment of medical supplies and equipment to rural Uganda helped open the Mama Sabina Community Health Clinic. Within a week of opening, the clinic staff delivered its first baby, Lauren Yeheri Muhindo! Maternal and infant mortality rates were devastatingly high in the region which had no available medical care.

Thanks to the support of Anchorage Presbyterian Church, generous donors and our hospital partners, this community now has a clinic and babies like Lauren have the opportunity to survive and thrive. Mom and baby are doing well and are deeply grateful to everyone who supported this project.

SOS in the Community
Our partnership with Healthcare Essentials Training Institute (HETI) is bearing fruit! SOS provided all the supplies needed for HETI to open its doors and this month, HETI graduated the first class of Certified Nursing Assistants.

Turahnna (pictured) dreamed of being a nurse and with a scholarship provided by our partners Northeast Christian Church and the Black CDC, she has graduated her CNA training at Healthcare Essentials Training Institute. Since graduating, Turahnna has already begun her healthcare career. She was just hired by the West Louisville medical provider HOPE Wellness Center!

SOS is committed to providing our community with education and medical resources. If you think SOS can benefit your organization, send us an email to see how we can help!
SOS Around the World
Despite this unusual year, our international work has not slowed down. In the time of greatest need, we have increased our humanitarian shipments around the world.

Recently our partner Ramazani Djuma, CEO of Good Helper Foundation, traveled to his native DRC to deliver facemasks, sanitizers and other medical supplies needed to combat COVID-19. While visiting the hospital in his hometown, he saw the hospital was reduced to using cardboard as a mattress on the beds. The image was a stark reminder that, even in a public health emergency, we are incredibly blessed with the medical care in our community. Denise Sears, CEO, affirms that "SOS and the Good Helper Foundation will continue medical shipments to ensure no patient sleeps on a cardboard mattress again."
