This issue’s charity: Living Goods

Why they’re crucial: When disease hits, many of us are fortunate enough to easily access the medicines and medical expertise we need in order to get well. In places such as Uganda, Zambia and Myanmar, however, prohibitively priced medicines and lack of access can make treatable diseases such as malaria or pneumonia fatal. Living Goods works to provide desperately needed health products in developing countries around the world, and to encourage female entrepreneurship at a local level, through a door-to-door model of distribution. Living Goods trains women in the communities where they live to visit families, provide at-home health advice, and sell health products at an affordable price.

What they do:  

• Distribute simple, life-changing health products such as water filters and medicines to communities in need.
• Create entrepreneurship opportunities for women through a door-to-door sales and distribution model.
• Work to prevent child death from diseases such as malaria, diarrhea and pneumonia.
• Create sustainable models for community health in developing countries.
