Passionate about providing health care for the people that need it most? Then our Kenyan coffee is perfect for you! Pure Origin‘s Kenyan light roast benefits Grounds for Health, a group that provides cervical cancer treatment and screening for women who would usually go without. With every purchase, you help reduce the incidences of cervical cancer, increase access to care, and maintain sustainability of the African coffee industry. Let’s delve into the specific ways that every cup of coffee supports health empowerment in Kenya.
Grounds for Health
Since its foundation, Grounds for Health has treated over 12,000 women and screened over 140,000, according to the organization’s website. These women typically come from the most remote regions of Africa, where health care is often inadequate and preventative care is nonexistent. By partnering with Grounds for Health, we help provide health facilities with cryotherapy and treatment devices, as well as necessary supplies. Together, we also spread word about screening and treatment possibilities, saving lives that would have otherwise been lost.
Many women that receive treatment from Grounds for Health work in the coffee industry. In the far-out coffee-producing regions of Kenya, it’s difficult to get access to screening, let alone treatment. That’s why we partner with Grounds for Health – every cup of coffee sold makes a huge difference for our growers.
With goals to eradicate incidences of cervical cancer, it’s critical to continue funding health care, particularly for the ones that can least afford it. With your help, Grounds for Health can continue their mission. As word spreads about their work, we can vastly reduce the negative effects of cervical cancer in Kenya – together.
The importance of health empowerment
It’s impossible to overstate the power of saving a life. When caught in its early stages, cervical cancer can be easily treated, greatly improving the life expectancy of the woman. But with such a complex issue, it can be hard to know how to help. That’s why Pure Origin makes it easy. Simply purchase our Kenyan light roast and you’ll be giving back to our growers in Kenya. In doing so, we’ll be sharing a cup of coffee that’s not only delicious, but saves lives.
Thank you for empowering growers at origin! With every story read, cup poured, and coffee sipped – you’re connecting with the world.
