Get Involved: DONATE

Health through Walls relies on your generous donations to sustain our important work improving the health, welfare and lives of prisoners in resource-poor countries. Money is helpful to defray the costs of our medical missions, purchase medical supplies, produce training programs, and buy necessary medications that are not otherwise donated. Any amount of donation is vital to our program.

Monetary Donations vs. Commodity Contributions

Monetary donations are the most effective form of assistance because they allow us to purchase the exact type and quantity of items needed by those affected. Monetary donations therefore have several logistical advantages over commodity contributions:

  1. Monetary donations are more cost-effective than commodity contributions, because the cost of international shipping usually exceeds the cost of procuring the commodities within the region.
  2. Monetary donations, unlike commodity contributions, do not involve international transportation and handling, which can be very complex and time consuming.
  3. Health through Walls can use monetary donations to specifically procure items on a priority-needs basis in the exact quantity and quality required - while commodity contributions often involve use of scarce resources (transportation, staff time, warehouse space, etc.) for non-crucial or inappropriate commodities.
  4. Commodities procured using monetary donations can be sorted, labeled (in the appropriate language), and packaged in exactly the manner required for storage and distribution and will reach the affected region much quicker than commodity contributions would.
  5. Additionally, monetary donations also help to ensure that relief efforts contribute to the long-term sustainability and self-reliance of the affected region. This is because commodities that have been procured using monetary donations:
    1. Are more likely to be culturally and environmentally appropriate, and consistent with traditional practices and consumption patterns;
    2. Support the economy of the affected region when procured locally, thereby contributing to the eventual goal of self-reliance and economic growth.
