The Borgen Project
It can seem like foreign aid isn’t making a dent in the problem of global poverty and that sickness and poverty around the world are unbeatable problems. But in the past 20 years, the number of malnourished people has been cut in half, there are more children in school now than at any time in history, and in the past five years HIV/AIDS mortality has been reduced by 30%, meaning it is no longer the leading cause of death in Africa. Huge strides are being made everyday that move all of us forward – like the Reach Every Mother and Child Act (in Congress now) which seeks to end preventable deaths of mothers and children around the world in the next 15 years!
The Borgen Project is a national nonprofit organization that fights global poverty through education, mobilization, and advocacy. We are volunteers from all over the country working in our own communities to change the global community. We raise awareness on the important issues of poverty around the world and the things that are being done to stop them – like the Reach Every Mother and Child Act – and mobilize our communities around the country to take part in a national movement to prioritize reducing global poverty in our nation’s foreign policy. To learn more and find ways to become a Borgen Project volunteer or take action as a community partner, visitborgenproject.org. Together we can downsize poverty.
May is Lyme disease awareness month!
NE Ohio Lyme Foundation is a non-profit organization created to help those battling Lyme disease as well as other tick-borne illnesses. In 2012, our daughter Megan was diagnosed with Lyme disease after several years of illness. Left untreated for so long, her disease became chronic, and we have had to travel outside of Ohio to obtain adequate treatment for her condition. In 2014, our second daughter, Sara was also diagnosed with Lyme disease. Because of awareness and understanding of Lyme disease from our experiences with Megan, Sara’s diagnosis was made quickly and her treatment has been less complex. It has been our desire to bring awareness and education, so others do not have to suffer. Lyme disease is becoming a serious health issue in our area. Many people have been diagnosed with Lyme disease, and the numbers are growing at an alarming rate. Options in NE Ohio for diagnosis and treatment are limited. Through this organization we hope to provide awareness and support for those suffering with Lyme disease.
We will be holding our second annual multidisciplinary Lyme disease Symposium on May 5, 2018, from 9am to 4pm at the VMPAC in Andover, Ohio.
We invite you to join us for a day of education and awareness.
Lunch will be provided from Panera Bread, with gluten-free options.
TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE UNTIL APRIL 30TH. AFTER APRIL 30TH, TICKETS MAY BE PURCHASED AT THE DOOR, BUT WILL NOT INCLUDE LUNCH. LUNCH WILL BE CATERED FROM PANERA BREAD, BUT REQUIRES A 5 DAY ADVANCE ORDER, SO GET YOUR TICKETS AHEAD OF TIME!!
TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED AT https://neohiolymefoundation.eventbrite.com
