Challenge

The average life expectancy in Omiling, where Hope Ofiriha's Loheru Health Post is located, is only 42 years old. A case of diarrhea, a pregnancy or even a puncture wound can be a death sentence there. The remote mountain village is about a 7-day walk from the nearest government hospital and 62 kilometers from the nearest government health clinic. Accessing either is virtually impossible for villagers because there are no paved roads or public transportation to get there.

Solution

The project provides medical staff, equipment, medicines, and health education at our Loheru Health Post as well as emergency transportation (by bicycle) to the government hospital.

Long-Term Impact

The project ultimately will increase the average life expectancy and reduce the abysmally high neonatal, infant, child, and maternal mortality rates in the area. They currently are among the highest in the world.
