In Maori culture, utu is a principle of reciprocity, or balance.
Utu Humanitarian Alliance is a partnership of caring, globally-responsible businesses and professionals. We partner with physicians in underprivileged communities worldwide. We provide them with the funding and the resources necessary to perform essential medical procedures for those that would not otherwise have access to skilled medical care. We focus our efforts on treatable deformities and degenerative conditions . . .
Conditions such as cataracts and strabismus can often be cured with a relatively simple procedure.
Tragically, millions of indigent people worldwide suffer through this treatable blindness because they cannot afford such a procedure.
Congenital facial deformities occur with varying degrees of severity. The effects can be wide-ranging from disruption of feeding and hearing to inability to speak. Severe cases result in infant death.
The psychological impact can be equally debilitating. Self-consciousness and social rejection are commonplace when the condition is not treated.
This congenital deformity can be debilitating if not treated soon after birth. Mobility is extremely difficult and increasingly painful.
All children should be able to run and play. The sooner a sufferer can be treated after birth, the greater opportunity they have to enjoy a life with full mobility.
You will find members of our initiative in a broad variety of industries and professions. Utu members are among the most reputable and respected providers in their fields. When you choose an utu provider, not only are you facilitating an essential medical procedure for a person in need . . . you are choosing the best possible products and service for yourself.
