Donate

Give lifesaving healthcare today.

Your generous donation supports community and frontline health workers to transform health outcomes and save lives in some of the world’s most remote communities.

Across the globe, community and frontline health workers are teaming up with nurses, doctors, and midwives to bring lifesaving care to their neighbors—from ensuring mothers have a birth plan to safely deliver in a clinic, to treating or screening children for malaria, pneumonia, and malnutrition, to delivering contraceptives and supporting immunization campaigns.

When community members like Ruth are trained and employed as part of the primary healthcare team, they save lives in the world’s most remote communities. But they need to be supported.

Now is the time to rally behind these critical workforces. With your donation, we can continue investing in the people and systems working to bring healthcare to the people who need it most.

Together, we can realize a future of health for all.

Last Mile Health is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, EIN 26-1401736, all contributions are tax deductible.
