Improving children's health in villages in Darfur

Latest on Improving Children's Health in Darfur

Key actors in improving children's health in the villages in Darfur are the first aid workers who, in addition to providing front line treatment for minor ailments, are actively engaged in health education. A very important aspect of this is working with mothers in the care of their children focusing particularly on nutrition as so many of the children are malnourished, and this is at least partly due to mothers' lack of knowledge of the nutritious qualities of foods which are around in the village. So it is good to be able to report that 55 volunteer first aid workers from 31 villages received their training from 1-15 April. This means that all of the 60 villages supported by KIDS FOR KIDS have at least one trained first aid worker and most of them have two first aid workers so that they are able to support each other. On completion of their training the first aid workers were provided with a starter kit containing basic equipment and medicines. Each first aid worker was also provided with a cross bred donkey to enable them to reach people in need quickly.
