Consider giving gifts this year that warm the heart, and inspire change.


Alternative Gifts are gifts from the heart, sharing something you're passionate about in honor of someone special to you. GHM's alternative gifts help the hands that heal by supporting our work overseas. Choose an item that is especially meaningful to you, make a donation to GHM in the amount noted for the item (you can choose “Alternative Gift” in the Designation dropdown menu on the Donate page), and print out the card to present to the person who will receive your gift, or let us know (see Contact Us) and we will mail a card to him or her. The card will share the story of your gift, and the impact it will have for someone on the other side of the world.

You can download printable pdf documents of cards related to the gifts above, or contact us if you would like the card mailed to you or the person in whose honor the gift was made.

The Handbook for Health Personnel in

Written specifically for Liberia, the 350-page Handbook for Health Personnel in Liberia covers everything from snakebites to tuberculosis to mental health. A standard guide for clinic personnel and a textbook for physician assistant students, the Handbook is an essential resource for improving skills in diagnosing, treating and preventing illness, which in turn improves the health and well-being of whole communities, including for young ladies like these.
