Will a Dengue Fever mosquito touch down in Chicago?
Will the Anopheles Family, better known as the Malaria Mob, be buzzing the rooftops of Miami?
Will more mild winters allow an army of mice to transmit Hantavirus across Europe?
The number one health threat facing the world today is CLIMATE CHANGE.
As the earth warms, insects, such as mosquitos carrying vector-borne diseases like dengue and malaria are already migrating to places where they previously did not exist.
You have a chance to take on these travel bugs. Support Health Care Without Harm in this Challenge! Act NOW and help us raise the money we need to mobilize the health sector to combat climate change. Your support is ESSENTIAL.
If we don’t act now, it will just get worse.
Can you imagine what it will be like to deal with epidemics of dengue, malaria or hantavirus in Los Angeles, London or Sydney?
From Bangladesh to the Louisiana Bayou, severe storms, heat waves, drought, and food shortages are already on the rise, harming everyone—particularly our most vulnerable populations: children, the elderly, the poor.
Hurricane Sandy showed us that even one of the greatest cities in the world is not prepared to deal with the ravages of climate change caused by extreme weather. Can you imagine more Sandys; more Katrinas?
Health Care Without Harm is working with doctors, nurses, hospitals and health ministries around the world not only to prepare for, but to take action on the challenge of climate change. We are forging positive solutions to protect people’s health and the environment in two key ways:
We are working with hospitals to reduce their own substantial climate pollution, thereby establishing models for positive transformation;
We are mobilizing health professionals to advocate for clean, healthy energy such as wind and solar to replace dirty, unhealthy sources such as coal and oil—thereby protecting public health, locally and globally.
We need you to join us by taking action NOW.
This is your opportunity to become a vector for climate solutions, stop the travel bugs and mobilize for a healthy planet. Donate TODAY to Health Care Without Harm.
