The nonprofit will support women in underserved communities by providing free contraceptives, reproductive health services, and resources
ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Hazel Walker Foundation (HWF), a nonprofit organization offering no-cost reproductive health services, information, and education for women, has announced the launch of its new website. The platform will serve as an information hub for women in need of free reproductive health care services and resources. Founder Dr. Christopher Walker created the organization to give back to the community and support underserved and minority women.
The Hazel Walker Foundation provides free oral contraceptives and reconstructive surgery procedures to treat female genital mutilation (FGM). These services are a part of the organization's commitment to advancing the right to universal sexual and reproductive health care for all women. Women can request more information or schedule a consultation via the website. Birth control pills are available through the foundation's partner provider UroGyn Specialists of Florida in downtown Orlando.
"Women play a critical role in our society, and prioritizing women's health on a global scale will improve the overall well-being of families and communities everywhere," says Dr. Christopher Walker, founder of the Hazel Walker Foundation. "Our goal is to help disadvantaged women, especially victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and genital mutilation, get the quality and affordable care they deserve."
Formed earlier this year, HWF will tailor its programs and services around three core initiatives – increasing access to no-cost health care, improving patient outcomes, and empowering women to take control of their reproductive health. The online platform is designed to help women make informed decisions about their reproductive and sexual well-being. Website visitors can access educational videos, articles, and links to local and national resources, such as medical facilities, public health services, and more.
