Join Jhpiego, a Johns Hopkins University affiliate, in fighting COVID-19 across the world in this year’s global Miles for Mothers Remix. This virtual event will help keep health care workers on the frontlines of COVID-19 safe while they prevent and contain outbreaks of COVID-19, and help moms and their families living in countries that were already experiencing crises before the COVID-19 pandemic, such as severe shortages of health care workers and lifesaving medical equipment, high maternal mortality rates, unreliable stocks of essential medicines, poor access to health facilities, lack of electricity and civil unrest.
Our goal is to raise $34,000 to help stop the pandemic in its tracks and save lives among the world’s most at-risk populations. Join us by walking, running, donating or fundraising to keep health care workers, moms and their families safe!
For the midwives of Dasht-e-Barchi, life is uncertain. They work in one of the most vulnerable and underserved areas in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Their community—the site of a horrific shooting just a few months ago—is targeted by extremists whose violence spares no one. Not women. Not children. And yet the midwives carry on, serving and protecting mothers and newborns. COVID-19 is their latest challenge. As these midwives work diligently to care for and treat their patients, they lack the personal protective equipment (PPE) they need to stay safe and to keep mothers and newborns out of reach of the virus. Our determination to equip health care workers with proper PPE is not enough!
Health care workers in the world’s most vulnerable communities are in urgent need of your help.
Donate to Miles for Mothers Remix to support the thousands of frontline health care workers who were already enduring challenging conditions before COVID-19 and are now risking their lives to care for their communities. By providing these frontline health care workers with lifesaving PPE, you will help stop the pandemic in its tracks and save lives among the world’s most at-risk populations.
Your gift will help buy much-needed medical-grade masks, disposable gloves, surgical gowns, safety goggles, cloth masks and hand sanitizer. Your support will help ensure that frontline health care workers can protect themselves and safely care for mothers and families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
