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.
Christmas Well 2020 – Thank You to Our Supporters
With a portion of the 2020 Christmas Donation Funds, that we received from our generous supporters last year, we were able to install several more solar powered wells in the Matam region in northeast Senegal.
5 Solar-Powered Wells were Completed in Matam – Project “Drill for Wellbeing”
Having water in a home means improved quality of life and wellbeing. Access to water plays an important role in hygiene, health, and sustainable development.
Action against the consequences of COVID-19 in Senegal
Together with the Deutschen Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit #GIZ #Senegal we start a project to fight the Covd-19 consequences concerning health and society in Senegal.
It benefits the poorest families, who are seriously affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and consequences, to help them with food security and to support a return into a professional activity. The YOU Foundation carries out educational measures, video messages, prevention work or direct support of affected people by making available also mobile health teams. Different individual measures are taken in rural areas e.g. distribution of seed and plants, to support self-sufficiency. Fast and unbureaucratic actions in the interest of those affected are required urgently.
