at a Time.
The One5 Foundation is focused on making a true impact in impoverished
communities throughout the world, by providing five crucial resources
necessary in creating a sustainable health care system.
WHAT we do
To create sustainable health care, it is essential to have a permanent health care facility. To help us in our efforts, the One5 Foundation hires local labor force from the community - allowing us to construct the necessary facility while stimulating the local economy by providing a livable wage to community members.
Delivering sustainable health care takes more than doctors; which is why we work diligently to equip each facility with the supplies needed to serve the community. From basic immunization supplies to more advanced medical equipment, we're able to outfit our facilities through both financial donations and donations of the supplies themselves.
In addition to meeting the immediate health care needs of a community, the One5 Foundation is focused on sustaining that level of care. By training members of the community to serve as staff and administer care to their neighbors, we're able to lay a foundation for a lasting health care legacy.
At the core of the One5 Foundation mission is our desire to serve developing countries where health care is not available. Which is why we work diligently with the underserved communities, with the assistance of their local government, to bring specialty and secondary medical attention to anyone in need.
A sustainable health care system is about more than just providing much needed health care ... it's about providing a community with the ability to care for itself. A community that can educate itself, treat itself and improve itself from within. Giving people treatment is only part of the picture ... teaching them to care for themselves is the most important part of what we do.
One5 is helping construct a new distribution center in Haiti, to aid Heart to Heart in their efforts to distribute medical supplies where needed.
In 2010, One5, with the help of local partners, completed our first sustainable clinic in Malawi providing clean water, food, immunizations, child birthing, health education and more.Read more about our Malawi efforts here. >
In the communities we serve, there's no such thing as a small donation. Whether it's volunteering your time, providing medical or construction equipment, or a simple monetary donation … everything you give to the One5 Foundation truly makes a world of difference.
