Thanks to donors like you, and our volunteers, HOW provides rides and services to over 240 women with a wide range of chronic or serious health conditions as shown in the chart below.
Access to healthcare isn’t only about transportation — it’s about support navigating our medical system, the forms to fill out, the lost wages for time off from work to get treatment, the cost of medicine, the questions that come when a health care diagnosis means we need to live our lives differently.
Because of YOU and your support, HOW helps women face these healthcare challenges!
“I’m very fortunate to be able to support organizations dedicated to the causes I believe in, where my gifts will make a difference. I’ve been successful in business here; I feel I should give back here. Helping Our Women is one of the local groups I give to as it is providing a much-needed service to women living on the Outer Cape and thereby to the community as a whole, and I hope my giving provides an impetus for others to follow my example.”
