Evelyn Burdecki with local children in Senegal

Thanks to EVELYN BURDECKI and the DEUTSCHEN POSTCODE LOTTERIE we were able to realize this project!

Health and Dignity for Mothers and Children – Health Station FAI Senegal

The project “Expansion of the Médina Chérif Health Station” (Kolda community in Senegal) serves to support several broadly defined health programs.

The health station’s purpose is to serve the rural community of Médina Chérif and to help lower mother and child mortality, to prevent infectious diseases and to generally improve the very important access to health care for its citizens.

Up until now, the community’s medical set up – with its very minimal resources – was unable to adequately accommodate pregnant women. The result was a high mother-infant mortality rate. Since the construction of the health station, the medical treatment available has greatly improved and the number of patients in the FAI maternity ward has increased by 1,670 women.
