doTERRA's dedication to humanitarian service through the Healing Hands Foundation and through the efforts of Wellness Advocates includes a commitment to supporting the health of mothers and babies in need around the world. Most of these efforts began because an individual or small group saw a need and took action. It always amazes me what can be accomplished by just a few people motivated by love and compassion.

Promise Walk for Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a condition that can cause serious complications during pregnancy for both mothers and babies. Since 2010 the Preeclampsia Foundation has held an annual Promise Walk raising over over $1.8 million to improve healthcare practices used to diagnose and treat preeclampsia. To help further their cause, doTERRA has provided a product donation for a silent auction that is held in conjunction with the event.
In 2010, Jennifer Gallardo travelled to Haiti to offer medical relief after an earthquake devastated the already impoverished nation. As a mother, midwife, and Wellness Advocate, she was deeply affected by the needs she saw, particularly those related to pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum. She established the MamaBaby Haiti non-profit clinic supported largely by her own efforts and donations as well as those of the organization's board members. As need outpaced their ability to provide, the foundation was desperate for additional funds. doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation got involved with a donation matching campaign that raised enough money to purchase solar panels and a new ambulance for the clinic.
