Support for Puerto Rico


#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving back. On Tuesday, November 28 join people around the world to support a cause close to your heart.

This year instead of asking for support for our programs and services, we are joining the movement to give back to others who need it the most. Our Board of Directors will match all donations (up to $1,000) on #GivingTuesday for the Together We Care disaster relief assistance fund. Our goal is to raise $2,000 for the Puerto Rico bleeding disorders community affected by Hurricane Maria.

 How Your Support Makes A Difference

  • $100 helps to repair a damaged home
  • $50 puts a full tank of gas in a car for a family
  • $25 purchases groceries for a household
  • $10 buys battery powered lights


About the Together We Care Disaster Relief Assistance Fund

The bleeding disorders community has a long history of rallying around our families in need. In 2017, the US faced an unprecedented number of natural disasters. So national bleeding disorders organizations such as Hemophilia Federation of America, the National Hemophilia Foundation, the Hemophilia Alliance, Hemophilia Alliance Foundation, LA Kelley Communications, the national network of hemophilia treatment centers and others have partnered to create the “Together We Care” disaster relief assistance fund. NEHA is proud to support these efforts. Learn more about Together We Care.


The New England Hemophilia Association (NEHA) is proud to support the “Together We Can” disaster relief assistance fund to help the bleeding disorder community in crisis. Whenever a natural disaster or tragedy strikes, it’s our responsibility to provide assistance to our community members in need. The contributions made to this program will make a difference in the lives of so many people living with hemophilia, von Willebrand Disease, and other rare bleeding disorders who have lost everything.
