Celebrate our Heroes

This year’s Art for Health Benefit was a huge success both in the dollars earned as well as building a local community of those supporting our efforts. The event was held in partnership with the Office of Global Health and Community Empowerment, our logistics’ partner for our service trips. All proceeds will go towards expanding our women’s health initiative in Haiti to include health education, contraception and growing our cervical cancer screening and treatment program; increasing critical surgical care in the Dominican Republic; and providing consistent support to our new partner community, Villa Verde.
