Summary

The correlation with health, education and poverty are strong, they are fundamental rights and opportunities that prevent children, families and communities from having productive and purposeful lives. Our program will equip, teach and help set up an infrastructure allowing for access to sustainable health care and health education to children and women in refugee camps and impoverished communities.

Challenge

Funding for Sudanese Refugees' basic needs in over the past 12 years have been reallocated to newer emergencies, leaving many displaced children and families without basic health care, education and access to information. Famine, malnutrition, STDs, AIDS, and preventative communicable ailments run rapid. Little is done to educate and train women and other community leaders about preventable measures and where to access information. Children die as a result of unfamiliar preventative ailments.

Solution

COWF's initiative will provide tools and training for community-based health care, educating and empowering children and their families about pediatric health, hygiene, adolescent health and preventative health care measures. COWF's academically affiliated health care professionals will teach, train and provide ongoing information exchange though technology, as a tool for eventually creating jobs with refugees, including women and surrounding isolated communities.

Long-Term Impact

When a child has an ailment, specifically in regions where resources are scarce, it holds a family from being productive. The long term impact by providing the tools and knowledge for health care and health education to a child, impacts their families. Ultimately, communities are made up of families, which are productive when their children are given a chance to live purposeful lives with access to healthcare and heath education. Without one's health, education and jobs are non-exsistant.
