Who We Are

Why we do what we do

Nigeria is a country in sub-Saharan Africa with a high disease and poverty burden, worse in rural communities. Primary health care services, when available, are expensive and can not be afforded by poor rural community people that must pay out of pocket. These make essential primary care services non-available and non-accessible in rural communities. 



Nigeria frequently ranks topmost on the global list for countries with the highest mortality rate from the three most common killer diseases of children in the world: pneumonia, diarrhea and Malaria. In some regions in Nigeria, the maternal mortality rate is as high as 10%, worsening child’s suffering and economic hardship for families.
