American Refugee Committee
Infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS threaten the lives of refugees and people in need. Simple precautions can be taken to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. But, often, people don’t have all the information they need to take these precautions. Messages about good health are particularly difficult to convey. They must be communicated in culturally-acceptable ways. Otherwise, they may be lost or even deemed false.
Your gift focuses on getting people the life-saving information they need in a culturally appropriate manner. By training refugees to educate their communities, convening small group educational meetings, and creating signs, pamphlets, art and music with health messages – your donation will make an impact upon the health of an entire community. What better gift for your loved one? Even the person who has everything surely hasn’t had the privilege of giving a community a healthier future.
