The HEAL Bracelet
Together, we can make the world a healthier place.
In partnership with Last Mile Health, Same Sky's HEAL Ring promotes a sustainable model for global health care. 20% of proceeds from every ring sold supports saving lives in rural communities through employment of professional community health workers.
Over one billion people around the world lack access to healthcare because they live too far from a doctor or clinic. Many of Same Sky's Rwandan artisans have been counted among that billion: before they had gainful employment some couldn't afford the journey needed to pick up free medication. Last Mile Health is working to change this narrative, ensuring access to quality primary health services for those living in remote communities by recruiting, training, equipping, managing and paying professionalized Community Health Workers to serve as formal extensions of the primary health system.
Last Mile Health’s CHWs are members of the communities they serve; bringing critical health services to the doorsteps of people living in the world's hardest to reach places. And their model is working: In 2016, Last Mile Health deployed 300 community health workers, who conducted more than 42,000 patient visits and treated nearly 22,000 cases of illness.
With the HEAL Bracelet, Same Sky proudly support Last Mile Health's innovative approach to making a healthier world, one community at a time.
Product Information: The HEAL Bracelet measures approximately 1/2" thick and 7" in diameter. Best fits wrists sized 6 to 8" in diameter. For best care, do not expose to water.
