Humanitarian Service Organization
Mission Statement 
The SGU Humanitarian Service Organization (HSO) strives to identify and address emergent humanitarian needs in Grenada, and to connect service-oriented individuals with the opportunity to improve themselves and the world through compassionate community outreach.
 
Introduction
 
The Humanitarian Service Organization (HSO) began in 2009. An extension of the Gold Humanism Honors Society, whose PreInductees had been teaching health education in local schools for a number of years, HSO's mission and projects reflect an ongoing SGU tradition of community involvement, compassionate care and humanism in medicine.
 
HSO and Fundraiser
 
In order to run our projects teaching in local schools, sponsoring health clinics and buying medical supplies for those in need, Humanitarian Service Organization raises funds. We have channeled resources from Student Government into to local agencies like the Woburn/Woodlands Development Association to rebuild homes destroyed in Hurricane Ivan. Donations from other student organizations have been utilized to hire the Vision-Impaired Massage Therapists from Soothing Touch to treat geriatric patients at Richmond Hill Home. Donations of funds or supplies are always needed, accepted and greatly appreciated. Donations are tax-deductible when made via the WINDRef Research 503c. Please send funds to: Humanitarian Service Organization c/o WINDRef SGU Campus Grenada, West Indies Please feel free to contact HSO with any questions at hso_admin@gmail.com
 
HSO and Other Campus Organizations
 
Humanitarian Service Organization has joined forces with a number of other groups at SGU in order to expand our range of impact, raise funds, educate more students, and generally learn from one another. HSO has ongoing relationships with IEA, Women in Medicine, ICSA and Surgery Club.
