The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Inspired by the example of Jesus, CMMB works in partnership globally to deliver locally sustainable, quality health solutions to women, children, and their communities.
CMMB is a leading faith-based NGO focused exclusively on global health care for the world’s poor, by building healthy, sustainable communities through community engagement and partnerships. Now entering its second century, CMMB is committed to integrating and focusing its programming around saving the lives of children and mothers by concentrating on leading causes of mortality in targeted communities.
Building around a new CHAMPS (CHildren And Mother PartnershipS) model, CMMB works at both the community and clinical levels in these targeted communities to strengthen health services and address the leading causes of maternal and child death. CMMB has committed to develop 20 CHAMPS sites by 2020, incorporating at least 3 in Haiti, Kenya, Peru, South Sudan, and Zambia.
This was my first clerical volunteer job and it turned out to be extraordinarily beyond my expectations. Working with CMMB has taught me a multitude of different skills, being here has opened my eyes more to the world of poverty that we don't get to see here in America. This is the best opportunity, I'm overly appreciative of the support and guidance from their staff. It's a joy to work alongside a community of employees that dedicate their lives to helping others. This company goes above and beyond to better the lives of women and children around the world. The environment in this office is loving and encouraging. Working here has opened my heart even more for the unfortunate, and has influenced me to confirm my decision to pursue a career in nonprofit. Thank you CMMB. It's an honor to volunteer for this organization and I would highly recommend anymore looking for volunteer work to join this company, they show nothing but care.
