At Szio+, we believe healthcare is a right, not a privilege. That’s why giving back to our community is part of the Szio+ mission. We have committed to donating a portion of our profits to charitable organizations that share our values. Each year we choose a different organization to donate to. Here are some of the organizations we have supported.
Szio+ is proud to partner with Essentials First, an organization that has been providing hygiene and warmth kits to several populations including those experiencing homelessness, low-income households at risk of homelessness by working with dozens of community providers who serve them. To date, our team has put together hundreds of essentials kits that have been distributed to a growing number of people unable to afford these products.
In 2020, the pandemic exposed an alarming gap of access to hygiene support, especially among low-income households and those experiencing financial instability. Essentials First works towards establishing the necessary relationships to procure millions of hygiene items in bulk to be distributed through a network of food banks and nonprofits.
Saving Mothers is an organization dedicated to eradicating preventable maternal deaths and birth-related complications in the developing world. It is our firm belief that most of these deaths are due to lack of access to basic reproductive care, and that this lack of access is a human rights violation on a grand scale. At Saving Mothers, we believe that all women are entitled to quality reproductive care, and that their lives, their children’s lives, and the basic fabric of society depends on this.
Founded and run by medical professionals, our approach to this issue centers on educating and empowering women so they can become active participants in decision-making regarding their sexual and reproductive health. We also educate and train local healthcare providers to ensure that women in low-resource areas have access to the quality of care they deserve.
