Delivering care in Banepa, Nepal.

Removing barriers to health care in the Peruvian Amazon.

GHI Peru projects take place in and around Iquitos, a beyond-roads jungle capital. Here, GHI works with a local partner, Clinica Ana Stahl, to address the unique health care challenges found in the Amazon and to provide medical care to those who would otherwise go untreated.

Orthopedic care in Rwanda: a step in a new direction.

Disabilities and injuries which would be quickly addressed in the developed world are simply left untreated in Rwanda; GHI is working to change that reality.

Providing care in Lake Kivu, Rwanda.

The medical mission project is to provide orthopaedic and maternity care for patients at Mugonero Hospital and primary care to people living in the villages surrounding the hospital.

Working at Hospital Alma Mater in Haiti

Volunteers will travel to Gros Morne in northern Haiti to work at Hôpital Alma Mater on a variety of capacity building projects. Hôpital Alma Mater is a 50 bed hospital serving approximately 135,000 people in the region. The hospital, like most health care facilities in Haiti have been stretched thin while they have struggled to provide care to people in their own community and to an influx of patients following the earthquake and cholera epidemic.

GHI has been working alongside Hospital Alma Mater since 2013 to build the hospitals capacity to provide high quality medical care to those in need. 

Aid and assist those in need in Tanzania

Approximately 68 percent of Tanzania's 45 million citizens live below the poverty line of $1.25 a day and 16 percent of children under 5 are malnourished, according to Heifer International. In Mbulu, Dareda Hospital provides health care for the region they serve, but often faces limitations.
