A lack of qualified healthcare workers in rural communities is a growing issues and with education limited many communities are unaware what to watch out for or do if their health becomes compromised. Statistics show that rural and remote communities have a lower life expectancy due to lack of resources. Access to healthcare can be expensive and is simply not an option for millions of people living in poverty today.
Currently, we are creating a series of workshops on preventative health but also training community members on first aid and emergency response and alongside this funding the medical supplies and equipment for the trained professionals to be able to help the local community. Offering this initial awareness and response service we aim to build awareness to empower local community members to keep themselves safe and healthy and improve their quality of life.
