Breathe Hope Impact Story
Meet 14 month old Maria, who came to the Fr. Andres Clinic in Aguacate, Guatemala. She is receiving a nebulizer treatment from one of the units that was donated to Global Links' Breathe Hope Program. 

The clinic prescribed Maria antibiotics and respiratory treatments, and her parents were able to return home with  a nebulizer from Global Links to continue treatment. When they left, little Maria was breathing well and recovering nicely. 


In the US, many patients cannot access nebulizers for home use. In other countries, nebulizers are often in short supply and many healthcare facilities are not equipped to treat the growing number of patients in distress. Your no longer needed nebulizer could be the breath of life for someone else.

Pittsburgh Gives Big
November 28 was #GivingTuesday. Give Big Pittsburgh was a success for many organizations in Pittsburgh, including Global Links. In total, Global Links raised $22,440 in one day!

We are grateful to the individuals who supported Global Links during this special event! We also want to thank our board members for matching every one of those gifts. 

​It was a great day for Global Links and all the communities that we serve. If you didn't have an opportunity to donate during Give Big Pittsburgh, our website is always available for your end of year, tax-deductible gift.
