Alima's Story

My name is Alima Toure. I am the founder of Heart First Aid Africa.

During my childhood, I tragically lost several family members to medical emergencies. Witnessing the devastating consequences of preventable tragedies that have claimed the lives of my loved ones served as a powerful motivation for me to establish Heart First Aid Africa Corp., a nonprofit organization driven by professionalism and compassion where we prioritize preventative care and health education.

Whether you choose to volunteer your time, donate to our cause, or simply spread awareness about our mission, every action helps. Working together, we have the power to effect positive change and forge a healthier future for marginalized communities.

Thank you for considering joining us in our mission.

Sincerely,

Alima
