B. Orphans and Vulnerable Children

Orphanhood is not a disease but a social problem of which children are the victims. It is the responsibility of adults, the society and national Governments to provide a safety net for these children to have a better quality of life. The plight of orphans is numerous especially when both parents are dead and no one in the community to provide support for them. Read more.

 


C. Medical Outreach

The World Health Organization (WHO) definition of health, as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity is yet to be attained for the majority of the people in rural communities in developing countries.
The majority of the health problems in developing countries are preventable, including childhood illnesses, malnutrition, malaria, pneumonia, HIV and AIDS tuberculosis, skin infections, hernia, diarrhea and parasitic infestations are common health problems. Access to health services is limited and the cost for services is a significant barrier. As a result many infants and women are sick and die many needless deaths.  Read more.
