SUPPORT AFRICAN FAMILIES
African Family Holistic Health
The African Family Holistic Health Organization (AFHHO) was created in 2014 in part by Portland's Swahili-speaking, community health workers (CHW) seeking to build on their strengths to improve their communities health through peer health education, increased access to health resources, and connecting community members with Portland health providers to create positive change.
These CHWs had experienced life as refugees or immigrants and now represent Multnomah County residents from Burundi, Democratic republic of Congo, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, and Uganda - members of our community whose heath concerns must be addressed.
AFHHO’s work makes a huge difference to people’s lives but this is only made possible by sustained funding so thank you in advance for helping us in whatever way you can manage
AFHHO is always looking for dedicated volunteers, and as a small charity you will really feel how your contribution is making a difference rather than getting lost in administrative tasks for a bigger organisation.
