We are a 501(3)c non-profit organization registered in USA since 2013. We strive to provide health education, awareness, advocacy, and access to resources for women and children in underserved populations around the world.

Cervical Cancer Prevention: Where it all Began

image15

Our longest ongoing project is for cervical cancer prevention in areas of need. In developing countries cervical cancer is the second leading cause of mortality, according to GLOBOCAN data by the WHO. We work to make screening and preventative measures more available to women who do not otherwise have access to these resources. 

Story so far
