On the Ground in Africa, by Africans, for Africans.

Yes, it's good news and all done on the ground in Africa, by Africans, for Africans. It took a couple years to get to this point, but it was well planned out.

It first started with helping refugee students with healthcare. Students were getting malaria, typhoid and other illnesses. It didn't cost much to treat these diseases, only students and their families just didn't have the money.
First we sent the students to the Azur Christian Clinic, which really helped so much. Then we had a volunteer RN who worked out of her little room to help students. We would purchase the medication and she would prescribe and treat.
Finally, we opened a health center that is licensed and open 24 hours a day to help treat refugee students studying 50 miles from the camp, young children and women from Kyangwali Refugee Camp and now we even give treatment to the community.
I am very proud of the African Team for making this dream a reality.
Emmanuel, Jean-Paul, John and Jonas. Thank you so much for all your dedication to see a vision and make it happen.
God will bless you for all you have done to help your community.
Good news in Africa!! A positive change - made possible by strong, motivated and very dedicated Africans. Empowerment by working as a team.

Jonas, John, Jean-Paul and Emmanuel
