The Global Relief and Development Organization (GRDO) holds the health and nutrition of communities as a central focus of its mission, recognizing their pivotal roles in ensuring comprehensive community development and individual well-being. Through our dedicated health and nutrition programs, we aim to meet the immediate healthcare needs of those we serve while also nurturing long-term nutritional health and resilience within healthcare systems.


Our approach to Primary Health Care Services is rooted in the principle of accessibility. GRDO is committed to providing quality primary health care to underserved communities, recognizing that the foundation of a healthy community is access to reliable medical care. We have been active in establishing and supporting health clinics, offering essential services including basic medical care, maternal and child health services, immunization programs, and disease prevention education. The impact of these services is substantial, leading to improved general health outcomes, reduced rates of morbidity and mortality, and ultimately, an enhanced quality of life for community members.


Addressing Nutrition for Vulnerable Groups is another critical aspect of our work. GRDO targets malnutrition, especially among the most susceptible populations like children under five, pregnant and lactating women, and other vulnerable individuals. Our activities in this area include conducting nutritional assessments, providing supplementary feeding programs, distributing nutrient-rich foods, and offering education on healthy eating practices. These efforts collectively reduce the prevalence of malnutrition and undernutrition, support the healthy development of individuals, and strengthen community immune systems.


Health Education and Awareness programs are a cornerstone of our strategy to foster a more informed and health-conscious community. By conducting health education workshops and awareness campaigns on diseases such as HIV/AIDS and malaria, as well as promoting essential hygiene practices, GRDO empowers communities with the knowledge needed to prevent diseases and maintain healthier lifestyles.

Our Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) Initiatives are integral to preventing waterborne diseases and improving overall community health. By building wells and boreholes, constructing latrines, and promoting hygiene practices, especially in schools and community centers, we ensure that clean water and sanitation are accessible, thus ensuring dignity and safety, particularly for women and girls.


To build resilience against future health crises, GRDO focuses on Capacity Building in the Health Sector. We train healthcare workers, provide support to local health facilities with necessary resources and equipment, and work on improving health management systems. This not only enhances the sustainability and effectiveness of health services but also fortifies the local health systems to be more robust and responsive.


In times of crises, our Emergency Medical Response capabilities are crucial. GRDO provides timely medical assistance through mobile health units, the distribution of emergency medical supplies, and support for medical evacuations. This rapid response is essential in saving lives and mitigating the escalation of health issues during emergencies and disasters.
