HOPE is necessary in every condition. The miseries of poverty, sickness and captivity would, without this comfort, be insupportable.
-William Samuel Johnson
Widespread poverty, hunger, and a lack of sanitation bring an array of deadly and debilitating diseases to the children and families in villages surrounding N’gattadoloukro, Ivory Coast.
Access to healthcare is limited and the quality of care is often poor.
Now, those living in the Ivory Coast face additional threats from Ebola raging in neighboring countries.
The staggering sickness and death rates impact nearly every family, keeping them from jobs, education, and better lives.
There is hope, though. Many of the diseases found in this region of Africa are treatable, and in some cases, even preventable. Small changes in education, prevention, and treatment could cut serious illnesses tremendously, allowing children and families full and more robust lives.
The Tumaini Foundation is dedicated to helping bring better health care to the residents of N’gattadoloukro, Ivory Coast. Better trained professionals with the facilities, medication, supplies, and equipment for proper treatment, prevention, and diagnosis means healthier living and new hope.
Your support through the Tumaini Foundation will directly fund the supplies and equipment for a free outpatient clinic and prevention education in N’gattadoloukro, Ivory Coast to help thousands of families and children.
