On behalf of the House of Grace, I would like to take this opportunity to profusely thank you for what WHO is doing in ensuring that there is available medical care for every person.
House of Grace is a non-governmental organization formed in 2002 to address the HIV/AIDS scourge that has become prevalent in Japan. Currently, the organization provides direct primary health care to about 3700 AIDS patients in wider Japan but our services are mostly concentrated in Yokohama. House of Grace was formed to help hundreds of thousands of migrants living in Japan who do not have access to primary health care. Currently, there are over 100,000 migrants living in Japan and most of them do not have access to medical care. Due to language barriers, the high cost of therapeutic care, and lack of health insurance, many of the migrants suffering from AIDS do not seek health care when they fall sick. The lack of access to health facilities has led to the rapid spread of HIV/AIDS among migrants.
House of Grace ensures that the migrants affected by the disease receive ARV’S in a timely manner to prevent their conditions from worsening. Our health officials are tasked with providing free health consultations for all the migrants living in Japan. This involves the provision of telephone health care information for those migrants who are unable to get to Yokohama or our regional offices. In order to bridge the language barrier, our organization has hired interpreters who are on call around the clock to provide emergency support activities.
In order to be able to reach as many migrants as possible, the organization trains and dispatches interpreters to support foreign HIV/AIDS patients. Additionally, the organization runs a program for health care support of HIV-positive foreigners living in and around Yokohama. To prevent the infection of new cases, the organization runs educational programs for HIV prevention among Thai emigrants. In the last few years, there has been an increased demand for telephone health care information for emigrants. Since the Japanese government has not been keen on providing health care support for the migrant population, our organization has taken it upon itself to support this cause in the best way we can. (Osborne 151)
Due to the sharp rise in health care costs in Japan, our organization has recently been experiencing financial constraints. Within the next financial year, there is a big possibility that we will be forced to discontinue the outreach program to new migrants and instead concentrate on those who are already on our program. By supporting our organization, you will be helping to keep alive the hope of thousands of migrants who do not have access to health care. In order to continue supporting these migrants, our organization needs $1,000,000 in the next fiscal year. Currently, we have received $500,000 from donors but the amount is still way below our need. By collaborating with us, you will be bringing hope to thousands of migrants who have been neglected for a long time.
I would like to take this earliest opportunity on behalf of the organization to express my gratitude for your generous support and for taking the time to consider our very important cause in society. Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the operations of the House of Grace.
For: House of Grace
