Sir Richard’s: KORE condoms

safe sexMy friend and fellow blogger for the blog You Think You Know is heading back down to Haiti to volunteer.  This isn’t his first visit. He has chronicled past trips, describing everything from the people he has met to the poverty he’s witnessed as a doctor volunteering to help the people of Haiti in his blog here.

Unlike my friend, I’d be useless in an Haitian Emergency Room, but thanks to Sir Richard’s KORE program I can now help contribute to the sexual health of Haitians by making contraception more readily available.  For every Sir Richard’s condom bought, the company is donating a condom to Haiti.

Let’s be honest, the world needs more skilled volunteers like my friend. However, this is something we can all do so when you reach out to buy your next box of condoms, perhaps you’ll give Sir Richard’s a second thought.  To date, Sir Richard’s has donated more than 1.6 million condoms to Haiti. Want to help?  Look for their condoms at Whole Foods stores or CVS pharmacies.

One response to “Sir Richard’s: KORE condoms

  1. First of all, thanks for the shout out! I read an article not long about about Sir Richard’s KORE program and was very impressed. The issue is particularly important in Haiti, where the HIV prevalence rate is 1.8% (by comparison, the rate in the US is 0.6%) and access to antiretroviral therapy is poor.
