Uganda - One Doctor for 16,200 Refugees in Kyaka II

One Doctor for more than 16,000 Refugees in Kyaka II
Think Humanity is going into Kyaka II Refugee Camp in 2010 to distribute mosquito nets. Imagine if you were a refugee and you had one doctor for a community of more than 16,000? The camp is 80 square miles - try to get to that one pediatric ward where there are 9 beds and most days 3 children or more to each bed. Two children die from malaria on average per day from malaria in this clinic. We need to give out 4,000 nets to be effective yet we need your donation for this project. If you can donate $5 then we can provide a net for 4 children and potentially save their lives for the next 3 to 5 years. Think Humanity is a 501c3 tax deductible nonprofit organization.

We should also have handmade Acholi African baskets, sling purses and smaller purses for sale.
By purchasing the jewelry from the Acholi women it allows them to purchase food and to educate their children. We then send 100% from sales back to Think Humanity projects.
A portion of money raised will go towards helping girls' education by purchasing ground nuts and cabbages to provide them with a healthy diet.
Presently they are eating only posho, porridge made from maize flour.
Thank you for your support.
