Families in the rural areas can barely manage to feed themselves, let alone have the money to afford healthcare and medicines. Owing to this fact, GWF is partnering with local Health institution in the region to offer health care assistance to those in need.
Health conditions and access to health care services play a huge factor in a community’s poverty rate. Children in impoverished communities live without access to basic health necessities such as clean water and sanitation, ushering in preventable diseases or worse. Health issues often cause children to fall behind in school, and a lack of education leads the way for drug use, early pregnancy, gang affiliation and much more.
