Ensuring Malaria scourge is reduced

Dear Friends, Supporters and Family of Serendipity Healthcare Foundation,

The year 2020 has come and gone and with it lessons that we have learnt that it is utmost important that together we can achieve more.

Sadly with the coming of the Covid 19 pandemic affecting countries all over the world, focus shifted from other diseases which are deadlier than the C-19 pandemic as malaria kills faster than the pandemic as every minute one child in 100,000 dies of malaria. One of the symptoms of C-19 is high fever/malaria and as such when a patient is brought to the hospital they are turned back because of the fear by health workers that is a case of Covid 19 and thus do not get treated.

The situation is worse in our rural communities as the primary healthcare centers do not have adequate facilities to take care of sick and most of the time the health workers are not readily available.

Thus as part of our efforts to reduce malaria in our rural communities, we distributed 50 Insecticide Treated Nets to 50 women during the last quarter in Kumbotso Local Government Council in Kano after malaria tests were conducted on them and will increase our reach to 50 more women within the first quarter of the year 2021.

You can donate to our cause to help us reduce malaria in our communities this 2021 and we thank you for your continued support and confidence reposed in us at Serendipity.

You can follow us on twitter @serendipityHea1 or facebook/serenhealthcare to see our stories and the impact we make in our communities through your support.

Best Regards,

Niimatullah Umar

Lessons Learned to be Stronger

Dear Friends, Family and Supporters of Serendipity Healthcare Foundation,

2020 was a year of learning, 2020 was not a year to get everything we wanted. it was a year to appreciate everything we have, In one of the darkest years of our shared existence, we have shown our brightest.....TOGETHERNESS.

Feeding, caring, connecting, protecting, and doing our best to make things better. Not just for our families and neighbours but for hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

Just look at the Incredible work we did together, and in these past amazing year, we have come to realise the value of togetherness.

Sadly, with the coming of the second wave of the pandemic and a vaccine found, there is a ray of hope that awaits us in this year 2021.

Schools are resuming in the next five days and thus it is of utmost importance that our children stay safe from the pandemic and following the COVID 19 Protocols; we achieved supply of face masks, hand sanitizers, washing liquids, water points, face shields, tempearture test kits et al to over 523 children in 3 schools and thus we are appealing that as schools are reopening with your kind donations we can do more for 4 additional schools this quarter.

Thank you for the confidence reposed in us and finding us worthy to be a link between you and the community.

Many Thanks.

Fighting hard to survive

Gone back to traditional processing
Gone back to traditional processing

Dear Supporters, Family and Friends of Serendipity,

The last you heard from us we talked about how our women were coping with COVID 19 and how it affects their business. We had a survey that showed that out of the 40 women thus far trained before the pandemic, only 15% of them have been able to weather the storm.

Upon further investigation we found out that the rest of the 85% of the women had no choice but to divert the initial capital funds given to them to basic needs of survival and now post Lockdown do not have any funds to continue their processing businesses.

Our country is currently in recession as cost of goods and services have gone up leaving the agricultural sector as the worst hit. We then had a meeting with the community based organisation that is overseeing the project in Tofa and it was resolved that a loan should be sought for them through the current programme of survival funds recently launched by the Federal Government of Nigeria. The application has been filled and thus we are waiting for the approval such that the women can go back to their lives pre COVID in helping their households.

We want to thank you for your continued support to our cause to ensuring that we take women out of the cluthches of poverty and assiting their households. 

You can follow us on our facebook page for updates on /serenhealthcare, twitter @serendipityHea1 or send us an email on samirah@serendipityhealthcare.org.in or serenhealthcare@gmail.com to give us an advice.

Thank you for your trust and confidence in us.

Best Regards,

Samirah Faruk
