Community Health Care Clinics for Women and Children
In Ethiopia, the health system is unable to provide healthcare for more than half the population. Much of the rural population has no access to any type of modern health care service. In terms of service delivery, it is estimated that only 75% of urban households and about 42% of rural dwellers are within walking distance from a health facility. Every year, 22,000 women and girls die during childbirth or as a result of complications of childbirth.
Our team recently visited an established clinic to get a frontline scope of how we could assist and provide for the families. Helen has embarked on an opportunity to provide quality medical services to mothers and children that are in need in Ethiopia. Hospitals and clinics are very limited within this area. Not only is medical services limited for families, but medication is very limited in supply.
Our Goal is to create clinics in Ethiopia where travel distance is too far to reach a hospital for care.
