When a person in Peru, or Siberia, or rural Haiti falls ill, PIH uses all of the means at our disposal to make them well—from pressuring drug manufacturers, to lobbying policy makers, to providing medical care and social services.

Through long-term partnerships with our sister organizations, we bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need and work to alleviate the crushing economic and social burdens of poverty that exacerbate disease. PIH believes that health is a fundamental right, not a privilege.

Through service, training, advocacy, and research, we seek to raise the standard of care for the poor everywhere."

These folks travel around the world advocating for and providing free healthcare and education to poor communities; through volunteers, donations and organizing. They are based out of Boston, Massachusettes, USA. I invite you to explore their website for further and more dertailed information! (cut and paste):

About bird&monster.:

Hello, World! I am bird&monster. of Austin, Tx. A crafty lady lookin' for some fun and experience in the wide world of jewelry and crafting. My story began with a love for shiny, metal things (I've been nicknamed "Raccoon")....And a very strong desire & drive to: A.) Work for myself, so that I can: B.) Live in conscious harmony with our planet while: C.) having an outlet for my passion to create shiny, metal things in a sustainable, eco-friendly way...Though B & C are moving right along, A is barely at the very tip of the metal iceberg! So. Here I am on Etsy. I am taking a little risk (juggling around dayjobs) to help make my dreams possible. I hope you like what you see. You are invited to look around, have some fun, and contact me with any questions or comments.
