DAWA means 'medicine' in Swahili.  We believe that medicine encompasses more than just pills. We believe medicine can also be meeting people with practical, immediate resources that can bridge the gap when they are in need.


DAWA honors, celebrates, and empowers the essential work of community frontliners and creatives of color through direct financial support, and culturally relevant health-centered programming.
