Support Women Entrepreneurs
Healing Fields Foundation provides training and support for women as health change agents in their communities. HFF works in rural areas of poorer states to impact change in the areas with the greatest amount of need. The approach is holistic-- working to prevent health problems and facilitate access to health services and entitlements from the government, as well as treat minor concerns with diagnostic care and product support.

MILLION PEOPLE REACHED
The leadership of our health leaders manifested full force during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Healing Fields has activated 1,200 Community Health Facilitators to educate their communities, distribute rations and launch covid committees in their villages. Following the nation-wide lockdown, Healing Fields provided dignified journeys home for 2,475 migrant laborers stranded away from home and established 103 quarantine centers for a safe transition for 4,078 migrants. Village women leaders taught large-scale demonstrations of hand washing and social distancing protocols. They have also facilitated 6,555 families access to entitlements and provided 10,212 families rations. Our CHEs also organized Covid Committees in 214 villages, so that covid protocols, quarantine support and movement could be managed by the community itself.
This health crisis has exacerbated existing cracks in the health ecosystem and rural economy, further limiting access to health services, products and livelihood opportunities. We need your help to continue this work.
