Reviews for Healthed Connect

Rating: 5 stars  

HealthEd Connect, a small organization has the amazing ability to impact a great many lives. The nimbleness of a small group of volunteers that can move quickly and are deeply connected within the communities where they work. An extraordinary example is the instant response following the earthquake in Nepal where thousands received food and were assisted with housing. HealthEd Connect assisted remote communities badly stuck by the earthquake others couldn't reach. I am proud to be a part of such an extraordinary organization.

As a previous board member and on ongoing donor; I am so proud of the absolute efficiency and heroic efforts to respond quickly on the ground to the Nepal disaster. The GAP program was just reinforced for me hearing Nobel Prize Winner "Malala" speak in Santa Barbara for girls education. I also know as a healthcare professional; their outcome results linking health and education for body,minds and spirits is a winner!

HealthEd Connect puts their money where their mouth is. All individuals in this nonprofit still go, work, and live among the people they serve. I am so impressed by this small orginaztion and what they have been able to do for education. Three villages now have schools and my university students who are training to be teachers here in the US can go work and see first hand how valuable and coveted an education is in Africa. It is amazing work. I have experienced well run and poorly run nonprofits in my line of work and this is one of the best.

Due to their established presence and connections in Nepal, HealthEd Connect was one of the first on the ground with aid and support for earthquake victims. They provided food and shelter to hundreds in remote villages, and continue to do so. Kudos to Jac, Sherri, and the whole team.

HealthEd Connect is responding to some of the most important issues and needs that impact the welfare of children and adults in communities that lack access to adequate healthcare and education. My husband and I lived in Zambia for a year and frequently visited some of the communities in which HealthEd Connect now works. It is inspiring to hear about and see the positive impact happening in these communities as local community healthcare workers and teachers are being trained by HealthEd Connect to respond to some of the most pressing needs in the community. Some of their initiatives include free of charge schooling and meals for orphaned children, home based care for people with AIDS, and providing education for the care giving of babies and monitoring their growth. This model encourages the empowerment of women and children, which is exactly the mission of HealthEd Connect.

Our family has seen first hand the fantastic work being done by Healthed Connect and the Kirkpatricks. They don't just talk about doing, they DO!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Empower them to do more.

I cannot say enough about HealthEd Connect! My daughter has been involved with Sherri and Jac for several years now and has gone to Zambia two different times. What they do for the people of Zambia who are less fortunate than most of us is remarkable. It touched my daughter is so many ways that her first trip brought about her career change. HealthEd Connect touches everyone who is involved whether that is on their end (they giving end) or the receiving end.

I have learned about HealthEd Connect from my granddaughter who took two separate trips to Zambia this year to support the program. The needs are many in this area of Africa, and are being met in many ways through the teaching that helps increase the skills of the adults and children in the village and through medical care that has shown a true loving and caring support system for many years. HealthEd is administered in an effective way that will continue to develop an independent way of life for these wonderful people that are so eager to learn and take care of their families.
