OVI Healthcare a US 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is bringing transformative care and life-saving treatment to the developing world. Our mission is to make critical healthcare services accessible to everyone on the planet--with particular emphasis on reaching orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children.
In December 2017, we set out on a journey for change. On a mission to make healthcare accessible to everyone. Watch the video below to catch a glimpse of the rapid impact that is unfolding as we bring transformative care and life-saving treatment to the world's most vulnerable populations.
Iza Hehre is an internationally-acclaimed social entrepreneur, a dually licensed US Physician Assistant and Kenyan Clinical Officer, best selling author, and the youngest ever recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Award for Global Citizenship (among fellow laureates US President Jimmy Carter, Michael J Fox, and Christina Aguilera).
After witnessing the devastation caused by failed humanitarian aid efforts that capitalize on suffering and endanger vulnerable populations, Iza created modularized systems for locally-staffed critical healthcare facilities for children in economically and medically vulnerable areas of the world.
Iza’s vision for innovating healthcare for vulnerable children globally has flourished through her partnership with her husband, Robert Hehre MPAS, PA-C. Robert serves as the OVI Medical Director and Hospital Operations Strategist in the global expansion of our facilities throughout the world. The Hehres became friends at summer camp in 2007, were married in 2015, and are currently raising their daughters Lily and Winter Rose onsite as they serve full-time as executives and licensed Kenyan Clinical Officers at the OVI Children’s Hospital in Kenya.
To maximize our efforts, we have shared personal meetings with the Dalai Lama, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and Grameen Bank Founder Dr. Muhammad Yunus, representatives of the Royal Family of Abu Dhabi, Mrs. Sarah Obama—Kenyan Humanitarian and Grandmother to President Barack Obama, and the Muhammad Ali Family.
"This path is blazed by leaders all across the world, raising up together to provide the sick and vulnerable with access to life-saving treatment.”
