The least developed countries in the world suffer at the most basic of all levels. The people of these regions, particularly in the villages, are exposed to the harshest of conditions. There is inadequate and often no drinking water available anywhere near their villages. Malnutrition leads to compromised immunity to disease. And poor hygiene habits lead to a number of devastating diseases.
Poverty and a lack of education lead to very vulnerable people, prime for disastrous epidemics. We are seeing diseases like HIV/AIDS and malaria decimate families and whole communities. Where there is no prevention education and medical aid available, such conditions flourish and people suffer unnecessarily.
Most rural villages have no access at all to any sort of modern health care. And in the rare cases where there is health care available, it can be a very difficult journey to make over a long distance.
Unite 4 Africa reaches out to these most vulnerable people living in the rural villages through Mobile Medical clinics and medical education/awareness. Local people are treated for various diseases, conditions, and given health check-ups. They are also trained through the Community Health Empowerment/Education Program (CHE) in basic prevention and treatment so that they continue with community health education and awareness even after the mobile medical team has left.
Through this healing ministry, hearts are opened and available to hear, see, and receive the healing power of God through His words.
Unite 4 Africa partners with local healthcare professionals to empower communities to improve on the health and betterment of their own people, focusing on greatly improving hygiene and prevention.
Our programs are carried on by those living directly within the community. We call them the Community Counsel/Committee. They understand the culture best and are able to communicate and implement methods of change, while still respecting the culture.
