Partners In Health (PIH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts. The programmatic work of PIH is guided by our Board of Trustees and developed and managed by the Officers and leaders in our management team.
Our Mission at PIH®
Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
We draw on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities. At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone.
When our patients are ill and have no access to care, our team of health professionals, scholars, and activists will do whatever it takes to make them well—just as we would do if a member of our own families or we ourselves were ill.

About Congenital Heart Defects
Congenital heart defects (CHDs) are problems present at birth that affect the structure and function of the heart.
Some CHDs are diagnosed during pregnancy using a special type of ultrasound called a fetal echocardiogram. However, some heart defects are not found during pregnancy. In these cases, heart defects may be detected at birth or as the child ages.
As medical care and treatment have advanced, thanks to research, infants with CHDs are living longer and healthier lives. Many children with CHDs are now living into adulthood. It is estimated that more than two million individuals in the United States are living with a CHD.
Even with improved treatments, people with CHDs are not cured, even if their heart defect has been repaired. People with a CHD can develop other health problems over time, depending on their specific heart defect, the number of heart defects they have, and the severity of their heart defect. It is important for people with a CHD to visit their doctor on a regular basis and discuss their health, including their specific heart condition, with their doctor.

“Maternal health is woefully neglected and those suffering fistulas are completely voiceless – young, female, poor, rural, and ostracized.
They are the 21st century’s lepers.” – Nicholas D. Kristof, The New York Times
Fistula Foundation does one thing and we do it well: treat obstetric fistula. Funding from our generous donors allows us to provide our partners in the field with human and financial resources that enable as many women as possible to receive the treatment they need. Our partners are carefully vetted and every site we fund is coordinated and staffed by local nurses, heroic doctors and care workers who understand the community and understand how to provide the best care possible to the women they treat.
The need for fistula treatment is tremendous and this is a challenge we cannot face alone. We consider ourselves very fortunate to be able to work with not only stellar partners in the field, but with a host of organizations and corporations that bring invaluable knowledge, expertise and even funding to the table.
Our Partners in the Field
Fistula Foundation issues grants on an invitation-only basis, which helps to ensure that our funding goes specifically to treatment at facilities that are known, trusted and have access to qualified fistula surgeons who can provide the best care possible to women.
We focus on funding fistula treatment, but there are many components required in order to provide women with free, safe obstetric fistula repair surgery. To fund the most effective path toward treatment possible, we work closely with our in-country hospitals and doctors to support targeted solutions that meet local needs.
To this end, we’ve funded some interesting and outside-the-box projects. In Senegal, we funded the deployment of motorcycle ambulances that have the ability to navigate patients to care facilities quickly, even over difficult trerrain. In Afghanistan, we funded repairs that fixed a leaky roof above a main fistula operating room, where women can now receive safe surgeries no matter the weather outside. In Uganda, we funded the construction and installation of a new water tank that now guarantees that surgeons and patients have easy access to a clean, safe and reliable source of water during surgery and recovery. In partnership with Direct Relief and UNFPA, we funded development of the world’s first Global Fistula Map, the single most comprehensive source for understanding worldwide availability of treatment for women living with obstetric fistula.
CHaRA was started by Carol and Ron McDonald in 2006. Ron and Carol started their mission work in Romania and The Republic of Moldova 1996-1999. It became their passion to work in villages among those in need. In 1999 they took their first trip to Africa. They lived and worked 7 years 1999-2006 in Tanzania East Africa as part of a mission organization: building, training and helping people.
Now they are working as CHaRA Construction Health and Relief Acts, a 501(c3) non profit organization. Working together with the local people, missionaries and the government to build schools, facilitate health clinics, provide training and clean birth kits to midwives, give mosquito nets, help with community relief and development activities. CHaRA sends a 40′ container each year filled with donated medical equipment and supplies to the Zanzibar Islands. They partnered with TOMS Shoes to provide 512,000 pairs of shoes plus hundreds of flip flops in the schools of Zanzibar.
It was our joy and pleasure to work with the people of Zanzibar Tanzania to help alleviate poverty and sickness for 10 years.
Now CHARA continues helping midwives on Zanzibar through education and giving clean birth kits. The office is now on the mainland of Tanzania. They are building the Love and Joy Center in Dongobesh. It will be a lifelong project caring for mothers and babies while sharing the Light of God.
Letter from the Founders
What we have discovered in Tanzania are kind and hard working people who live in poverty with deadly water conditions and suffering from many diseases. We have found malaria to be the number one killer of children under 5 and that all areas of life are affected by this parasite. We discovered hospitals with lack of basic equipment and supplies to care for their people. We discovered children are sent from age 4 to fetch water, mainly little girls that many times are molested and most times never attend school. We see HIV/AIDS killing parents and leaving millions of orphans. We have found 1 of 5 babies die at birth and many of these deaths can be stopped by the purchase of a small clean birthing kit.
All of these things creating the cycle of poverty and a people without hope. If we can come along side of the Tanzanians and help provide basic health care, malaria prevention training with nets to protect their families, enhance the hospital equipment, provide water sources, build schools, build orphan homes, sponsor orphans, make a way for girls to attend school, educate in all areas including health issues we can help to save lives and alleviate poverty. If we can share our love and compassion with those in need we can bring hope.
There is so much to be done, the need for water and health issues are enormous. Schools to educate the young and homes for orphans are in great demand. Please find out how you can support vital projects of CHaRA. As stewards of your hard earned giving we will continue working to improve the lives of the people in Tanzania East Africa. On behalf of CHaRA we want to say thank you. We appreciate the support of our donors and those who go with us. After MANY years of being in this country we have seen things change for good in the country. We’re excited and honored to continue being part of this great transformation.
“Oh, the joys of those who are kind to the poor! The Lord rescues them when they are in trouble. The Lord protects them and keeps them alive. He gives them prosperity in the land.” Join us and experience the joy!

Our mission is to improve the lives of the people of East Africa through good health, safe water, education, care of orphans, and the love of God. Our passion is to bring life, hope, and joy to those in need through acts of love and compassion. Our vision is to see the bonds of poverty broken, infant mortality rates reduced, children educated and in good health as we partner with the people of Tanzania and those who give for the mission to be fulfilled.
Living Out Our Mission
Chara is a Greek word for joy and gladness. We find that in giving we have reason to rejoice and the people we touch find hope, life and joy. There are few greater pleasures than the sounds of laughter, to see a sad child smile and find joy in the day because you are there. Taking a child from the ground to sit them in a wheelchair or PET cart brings a ray of sunshine from the smiles of both child and parent. Another is to see the smile of a mother at the end of a clinic knowing her child is well or on the way to being well because we were there. Knowing you have helped save the life of a mother and her baby with a clean birthing kit brings great joy. Every Mother wants to have healthy happy babies and we want that to be a reality for the people we serve.
We’re presently working in East Africa in the country of Tanzania: Zanzibar. There are 120 tribes in Tanzania, with a population of 51 million people. Most of the tribes are of Bantu origin and they speak Kiswahili. Zanzibar is a predominately Islamic Island with a population over one million. Zanzibar is made up of three Islands Unguja 1,666 Sq. Km. and Pemba 988 Sq.Km. and the small Island of Tumbatu. There are two rainy seasons they call the long rains March through May and the short rains October through December. Tanzania is the 24th poorest country in the world with a life expectancy of 62.2 years. 1 in 6 babies die at birth. The needs are many; malaria, HIV/Aids, typhoid, cholera, hunger, poor water, orphans, poverty and sickness abound. We have seen movements in every statistic over the past 17 years. We are making a difference!
In the words of Dr. Mabody, “change will come through faith based organizations like CHaRA” and the people who support CHaRA. With your help CHaRA can make a difference in Tanzania.
