Your donation matters

In the hospital. At the clinic. With the community. Around the world, health workers are there when we need them most. A gift today can help us support health workers around the world, providing them with crucial training and resources.

From mental health to maternal health, COVID-19 has stopped the provision of essential healthcare in its tracks.

Countries have had to make difficult decisions to balance healthcare demands and, in many cases, already limited resources have been diverted to respond to the pandemic, meaning other life-saving services have been suspended or reduced. With communities unable to access the care they need, mortality from preventable and treatable conditions has escalated, reversing decades of progress made in healthcare.

From the Democratic Republic of Congo to Bangladesh and from Malawi to Somaliland, the Fund has enabled health workers to deliver essential care whilst preventing and treating COVID-19. Through entirely virtual means, partnerships between health workers in the UK and low- and middle-income countries have provided mentoring, support and training, built lasting connections and improved patient care.

Against this mounting pressure, THET launched the COVID Response Fund in 2021, supporting health workers to overcome the shocks caused by the pandemic.

Between 2020 – 2021, we trained over 6,200 health workers in low & middle-income countries

“From the very beginning of COVID-19, we maintained triage and provided services to every mother. All of us were affected by the virus but once we tested negative, we returned to work immediately. It is still a battle for us, but we never stop giving services. The BSM E-learning platform has been highly crucial for me and my colleagues. We have l earned about critical cases, built our capacity and developed skills. This has highly impacted inpatient care because we are now more confident handling cases. Our connection with colleagues in the UK has also impacted us a lot. They shared cases in the UK context or African contexts which we were able to connect to our own practice. This inspired us tremendously. Our best achievement is gaining confidence and willpower to serve for the better.

We want to continue having this partnership with THET. It would help us all to build an international midwifery community together. If we can get further learning tools for capacity building, it will help women in this vulnerable community. I dream to continue working for women and as a midwife, I want to assist them best.”

How you can support us

Without health workers there is no healthcare and millions of us would have nowhere to turn to.

Whether you decide to make a one-off donation or give a regular gift, we promise that the donation you make to THET today will be used to help train the next generation of qualified health workers in the communities where they are needed most.

A £55 donation could fund one day of training on emergency obstetric care for a nurse in Somaliland.

A £150 donation could fund a day of sexual and reproductive health training for health workers and teachers in rural Uganda.

Whatever you decide to give, your donation matters.
