Médecins Sans Frontières
Support of global Maternal Healthcare programming, giving women’s healthcare the attention it deserves, ensuring women and girls living in challenging environments have access to medical care. Countless communities across Afghanistan, DRC, Central America, and around the globe, women, mothers and their children are now able to access life-saving medical care in MSF facilities thanks in part to the funding provided by Leacross Foundation. Even more so today, as the COVID-19 pandemic is causing the disruption in healthcare services around the world – including the diminishment of critical women’s health services – our partnership is critical to ensure that provision of these essential medical services continue.
The Leacross Foundation has been providing support to MIRA for over 15 years for its programs that offer free guide dogs, and service dogs to people living with visual impairments, and physical disabilities and to youth with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We are pleased to support Mira’s activities and services, based on the concept of body equality, and making what is accessible to all, be accessible to people with disabilities.
