Today's post is about our international partner: Grounds for Health. Grounds for Health provides sustainable Cervical Cancer care for women in coffee producing countries. The organization began when the president of a U.S. coffee company along with his colleague, a retired OB/GYN were visiting coffee cooperatives Mexico in 1996. They learned that cervical cancer rates there were some of the highest in the world. The doctor knew that cervical cancer was preventable and when caught early, one of the most treatable cancers in the world. They use the Single Visit approach to educate communities and currently runs programs in Tanzania, Mexico & Nicaragua. Since 1996, Grounds for Health has screened over 16,000 women in coffee producing countries for cervical cancer. Isn't that amazing?
Why did we select Grounds for Health? Honestly it's personal. My family has suffered multiple losses at the hands of cancer. It's not a pain I would wish on anyone and is devestating to say the least. However, it's awesome to know that this tiny organization in central Mississippi is able to make an impact in people lives we may never meet. Your purchases make an impact in those people lives as well & we thank you so much for your continued support. This could never be possible without you. Be blessed.
