INMED Partnerships for Children

INMED Partnerships for Children Since 1986, we have built alliances with public- and private-sector partners in more than 100 countries to build pathways for vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance.
Transforming Children's Lives, Cultivating Opportunity For too many children around the world, their hope for the future is not matched by opportunity. Facing poverty, poor health, malnutrition and lack of education, living in broken families and violent communities, a generation of children is at risk. Since 1986, INMED Partnerships for Children has built alliances with public- and private-sector partners in more than 100 countries to rescue children from the immediate and irreversible harm of disease, hunger, abuse, neglect or violence, and to prepare them to shape a brighter future for themselves and the next generation. Through a broad range of health, social, education, violence prevention and community development programs, INMED is helping to create opportunities that inspire hope, build self-reliance and encourage community collaboration to sustain positive change. Together with our partners, we are transforming the future for hundreds of thousands of children and their family and community members in Latin America and the Caribbean, southern Africa, and the U.S. by: * Securing children’s health, development and safety * Developing skills, knowledge and opportunities for children and youth * Building family and community capacity to support and sustain positive change

Did you know that over a thousand families receive support throughout the year with necessities from the INMED USA #OpportunityCenter ? In the last two weeks, we have lost count of the new families who have reached out to us. More than ever our community needs our support! Thanks to community partners like The Tin Cup Fund we are rising to meet the ever-growing need! #inthistogether

THANK YOU to The Tin Cup Fund for this AMAZING donation of food, diapers, and essentials for our families! We are doing a jig (while observing social distancing!)

Here's how we're using the Bilikit to eliminate #jaundice as a public health issue in Peru. 1. Screen with the Bili-ruler when a baby shows signs of jaundice, such as yellow skin and eyes. 2. Diagnose the level of jaundice with the Bilistick. 3. Treat the baby in the Bili-Hut, which typically provides faster results than traditional phototherapy. 4. An INMED Partnerships for Children-trained nurse administers the process from start to finish. 5. In a few short hours, the baby is jaundice-free.

Climate-vulnerable communities in Jamaica get a boost

Today is a big day for #INMEDAquaponics! In addition to breaking ground on our first system in Brazil, INMED CEO Dr. Linda Pfeiffer presented 5 INMED systems to climate-vulnerable communities in Clarendon, Jamaica.

The systems were made possible by the Government’s Adaptation Programme and Financing Mechanism (AP&FM) project of the Pilot Programme for Climate Resilience to reduce Jamaica’s vulnerability to climate change. The island is experiencing increasingly destructive impacts, such as stronger hurricanes, severe flooding, prolonged droughts and sea level rise, which have led to food insecurity.

INMED has helped dozens of vulnerable communities around the world, including many in Jamaica, to strengthen their climate resilience, food security and income-generation opportunities through INMED Aquaponics. The international nonprofit humanitarian development organization and its Jamaica-based affiliate, INMED Caribbean, have been building pathways for Jamaica’s most vulnerable children, families and communities to achieve well-being and self-reliance for nearly two decades.

Health in Action adds INMED Aquaponics in Brazil

We're excited to start construction on our first #INMEDAquaponics project in Brazil at @SERTA, an adaptive agriculture learning center in Pombos, Pernambuco. The system is the cornerstone of Phase III of our #HealthinAction program with Mondelēz International Foundation in Pombos, Recife and Pará. The food harvested from the system will be distributed to disadvantaged schools in Pombos and Recife for students' meals. We'll also host field trips and training opprtunities at the site.

Stay tuned for more updates from our INMED Parcerias para Crianças team!
