Challenge

Three million children die yearly from vaccine preventable diseases. The problem is that modern healthcare doesn’t reach the rural poor who are most vulnerable disease. In Mozambique, 85% of the population lives in remote villages. VillageReach serves 1.5 million people in Cabo Delgado and following expansion into neighboring Nampula will serve 5 million, most of whom are the rural poor. Of those, children and women benefit the most due to VillageReach’s focus on immunization and maternal care.

Dependable distribution of vaccines & critical medical supplies; Refrigerator operations & maintenance; Safe injection & medical waste disposal; Reliable energy supply; Rural/urban communications; Capacity building Community development

Long-Term Impact
