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!
My name is Anjali Mehta, and I am a senior at Marlborough School in Los Angeles. I have always been passionate about global health and medicine, which is why I was so excited to get involved with Jhpiego this summer. Jhpiego is an international nonprofit that empowers frontline health workers by designing and implementing effective, low-cost, hands-on solutions to strengthen health care services for women and their families. Over the summer, I joined a student board that reviewed their curriculum geared toward high school students. I was deeply moved by everything I learned during the committee meetings and desired to continue to help Jhpiego in any way I could. That is why I was so motivated to create a fundraising team for Miles for Mothers. Miles for Mothers will raise money to help keep frontline health care workers, in areas already experiencing crises, safe during COVID-19. I am so excited to continue working with Jhpiego through this fundraiser and walking for a cause that is extremely important. If you are able, please consider donating. Any amount will have a major impact on the lives of those we are aiming to help. You can either donate a flat amount or a certain amount based on the miles we have walked (we will be walking during the week of October 19-25)
