Summary

In N. Darfur an estimated 129 of 1,000 children do not live to their first birthday. RI is internationally recognized as representing one of the leading programs for child health in Darfur.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

RI's Zam Zam Health Clinic and 6 Rural Village Clinics serve 4,000 children, ensuring they receive immunizations, therapeutic feedings to combat malnutrition, and check-ups. RI also trains teachers to provide nutrition education to children. RI assists in preventing common health ailments that if left untreated are killers amongst children. This includes primary preventative care, acute respiratory infection and diarrhea prevention and treatment, malaria prevention and malnutrition.

How will this project solve this problem?

RI’s mobile Child Care Teams (CCTs) consist of trained local medical staffs that reach out to the hidden child population that are unable to reach a central clinic. CCTs provide the same care as a clinic and reach an average 1,000 kids every quarter

Potential Long Term Impact

The crisis in Darfur is a dire concern and the future of the region’s people lie within the livelihoods of its children. Permanent health facilities will support the children of North Darfur to survive past childhood.
