Swiss Water® Process is a proud sponsor, and avid supporter, of Grounds for Health (GFH). For those of you who are not familiar, GFH is a non-profit organization working in coffee growing communities to provide access to preventative health care services for women. Their main focus is on cervical cancer screenings and treatment. In developing countries, cervical cancer kills more women than any other cancer. Over 80% of women newly diagnosed with cervical cancer live in these countries. Most have never been screened; many are diagnosed too late for recovery. GFH is striving to change that.
At Swiss Water®, we believe in giving back to the people who help grow our coffee by supporting a cause that is both relevant and valued by our customers and employees. By assisting GFH support better health for women at the heart of coffee, we are also helping those women’s children, families, and communities.
Throughout the year, our fundraising efforts also include staff BBQs, employee coffee sales, raffles, and employee and corporate donations. In 2014, contributions totaled to approximately $25,000. We believe that we can make an impact, and assist GFH on their mission to reduce cervical cancer among women in developing countries.
