Holiday Greetings from WiRED International

2020. The year of COVID-19. Although we at WiRED International know that the pandemic will not end soon, we are heartened by the generosity and dedication we have seen throughout the year from friends, neighbors, colleagues, healthcare workers, essential workers everywhere and in the WiRED community. Our common humanity continues to be tested as we realize our individual health depends on global health.

Our holiday best goes to the many people who have donated to our work and to the professionals who have contributed their time and skills to the development of our health training programs — especially to the  launch of our Community Health Worker Program in Kenya, India, Nicaragua and Peru.

All of us at WiRED would like to wish happy holidays to the many people who have become part of our family since we began our work 23 years ago: doctors and nurses, community health workers and people in low-resource areas who have used our training materials to advance their knowledge of medicine and community health.

A special and thankful greeting to WiRED’s remarkable volunteers and partners around the world. Our work would not be possible without this talented and dedicated network of people. They are not paid and often go without recognition for their humanitarian work.

Happy holidays to everyone who is part of the WiRED family. Ours is truly a community effort to help provide people in underserved regions with the capacity to improve their own health.
