URI Cooperation Circles work to improve the health of people all over the world, giving them the chance to lead meaningful and full lives.

Examples of our work in this Action Area:

  • A Better Community for All Pakistan organizes free medical care for rural families who can’t afford doctors, distributing medicine and connecting patients with free hospital stays when necessary.
  • Blantyre CC wanted to restore sanitary conditions to Bangwe township in Southern Malawi. Together, 50 young people removed waste and cleaned pollution so the population could live in healthier surroundings.
  • Members of URI Brasilia CC in Brazil offered health, hygiene, cultural and citizenship services to the inmates of the SalveaSi - Institution for Treatment of Chemical Dependents, in observance of the National Day to Combat Religious Intolerance.
