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.

Reaching Peace through the Heart

As we joined local CCs from the Kerala region coming together to share their work and discuss in groups goals and challenges to be addressed in their next steps, as well as how our global team can serve and support these efforts, we listened with attention to Dr. Sreemathi Seshadrinathan, as she presented to us the achievements of their running program SOCAN (Solution for Cardiac Afflicted Needy).
