Every year, people worldwide receive pure doTERRA Frankincense and Myrrh essential oils from Somaliland. This December, we want to give back. Join us this holiday season as we raise $2 million for the Sanaag Specialty Hospital so it can continue its lifesaving work in the region. Here’s how it works: YOU BUY a 200 PV order in December; YOU GET free Frankincense 5 mL, Myrrh 5 mL, and Holiday Love 5 mL; WE GIVE $5 from your 200 PV order to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation for the Sanaag Specialty Hospital. Or you can make a direct cash contribution, of any amount, to the campaign below.

Edna Adan Ismail talks with David Stirling and Dr. Osguthorpe about Sanaag Speciality Hospital at the 2021 Evolve Connection.

Sanaag Specialty Hospital

For over four years, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation®, Co-Impact Sourcing®, local community members, the Ministry of Health, and development agencies have been working to open the Sanaag Specialty Hospital, a nonprofit regional hospital in the city of Erigavo—the capital of Sanaag.

The first phase of the hospital, a 45-bed facility, opened in May 2021. The facility includes accident and emergency, outpatient, diagnostics, maternity, and pediatric departments. As access to professional healthcare wasn’t previously available in the area, many locals had to travel great distances or forgo medical aid entirely.

The Sanaag Specialty Hospital is the first functioning healthcare provider of its kind, providing lifesaving services to tens of thousands of people living and working in the heart of Somaliland’s frankincense resin harvesting area.

Help us support the amazing work of the Sanaag Specialty Hospital by reaching our goal of $2 million in donations!

Here’s how it works:
  • You buy a 200 PV order in December.

  • You get free Frankincense 5 mL, Myrrh 5 mL, and Holiday Love 5 mL.

  • We give $5 from your 200 PV order to the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation for the Sanaag Specialty Hospital.

Help us support the amazing work of the Sanaag Specialty Hospital by reaching our goal of $2 million in donations!

I have the utmost confidence in our team to deliver high quality care in the region and look forward to seeing the impact the Sanaag Specialty Hospital will have on reducing infant and maternal mortality.
