During the past two years, we have seen the world mobilize to combat a global pandemic and been reminded of the importance of taking care of our health.  

Many factors can improve our overall health and well-being: access to preventative care, proper nutrition, clean water, and healthcare awareness initiatives. Support from the nonprofit community addresses these issues as well as supporting those battling critical illnesses, coping with chronic medical conditions, combatting substance abuse, or living with disabilities. 

Here’s how your CFC donations help to change the world in the area of global health: $25 restores vision for a patient with correctable blindness.  

  • $10 protects a healthcare worker in Africa with a certified facemask, eye protection, and 5 pairs of sterile gloves. 

  • $25 restores vision for a patient with correctable blindness.  

  • $750 installs a solar-powered well to bring clean, safe water into a community without a sanitary water source.
