“No money equals death”.

A drastic shortage of medical supplies and no microscope in local healthcare post means that patients will not be tested. But instead the health post will continue to treat patients for diarrhea even if they are suffering from malaria. This is a real dilemma, and as a result children are dying when they are treated wrongly for malaria when they are having diarrhea.

Healthcare post needs a microscope urgently to serve Omilling village, especially under the 5 years old. The village has no pave road, and there is no transportation to get to the village to government healthcare clinic. The nearest one is 62 kilometer. The patients cannot track 62 kilometer on foot for diagnostic purposes, and same distance back home.

Hope Ofiriha has asked the Omilling village to wait because this project has yet to attracted the GlobalGiving donors.The villagers remained optimistic, and hope one day a donor will come to help them get the equipment which is badly needed to end the dilemma.

We thank our supports, and Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you for years to come.
