In honor of Women’s History Month, we want to thank the team of women who make our work possible all around the world.

Across the 19 nations we serve, we partner with local health workers, caregivers, and activists who do the legwork needed to bring more women and girls health care — and empower them to make their own choices.

They are the unsung heroes of our work, and we need your help to give them the deep thanks they deserve.

We’re planning to surprise these amazing community health workers, caregivers, and activists with a special card, and we need your help in sending them messages of thanks.

Share your appreciation

Fehmida

Health Worker

Fehmida has been a Lady Health Worker for 17 years and is responsible for bringing sexual and reproductive health services to her village in Pakistan.
