Greetings to all FREDAfrica friends. Please enjoy this video. Its part of what happens with our rural public health, village action team members training and adventure with our medical volunteers.
Western Health Science medical students, a team of nine which was here on public health programs with FREDAfrica, engaged in providing treatment through medical camp and over 1012 were reached. They also trained FREDAfrica’s VHTs on public health issues and on best approaches of handling public health. They trained 180 VHTs. Each VHT is responsible for 10 households.
Happy summer to all! We’re happy to share some pics from our community education on nutrition where we partnered with local villages to form up a nursery bed for vegetables as a demonstration centre for the community.
Also included are pictures from our community education on sanitation where some plates and cups rack’s were constructed as an example for other community members. This helps to have a better place to put plates and cups after washing them.
Furthermore, other pics are from family planing and HIV education efforts.
And finally, pictures of fruits, members of the community appreciating FREDAfrica volunteers for the great achievements for development and community engagement.
FREDA thanks Keith for the financial support that enabled Nampanyi community to construct a health center. There is now access to medical services, in this remote and hard to reach community. Big hug from this community and from FREDAfrica as well.
Of the many community projects Freda is involved in (Water and sanitation, school gardens for vegetables, sanitary towels for school going girls and those out of schools, revolving fund for rural women groups for economic empowerment for them), Freda is helping support Miriam and her 38 children.
Freda has helped by providing some food and clothing to the family. However, she still needs more help. She has no mattresses for her children, no medication, mosquito nets, food and clothing for them all, on top of that, she has one child with heart condition who may require to be taken to a doctor for check ups.
You can read more about Miriam in this article.
If you are able to help Miriam, please do so by sending a donation in to Freda and mark that it is for Miriam.
Heavy rain and the wind last night brew off the roof for one of the dormitories of FREDAfrica centre for teenage mothers.
Jackie one of the teenage mothers lost her child. Bricks fell on her and most of their basics staff they use. 37 iron-sheets and 64 timber Is what we need to have the roof back. We are calling on friends around the world to help. Over 73 teenage mothers have no where to sleep even food was destroyed.
Please consider giving a donation immediately to help.
UPDATE: We managed to secure meals for 3 months and basic necessities like beddings and some clothes. We are now remaining to work on the roofing. Out of USD 1280 we have USD 560. We are at the moment in need of USD 720 to cover the cost of the dormitory roofing.
