Call to Action


Underserved communities often face the challenge of difficult-to-access healthcare due to a variety of barriers that contribute to its inaccessibility. Unfortunately, this contributes to the poor health of the affected individuals left without aid. Often, individuals and families in these communities may not have the fiscal or physical resources to receive proper healthcare. Some cultural traditions discourage the solicitation of current day medical care. Additionally, many areas struggle with limited resources in these areas or even an unwillingness of the providers to travel to these remote areas, which prevents hands-on healthcare from aiding these communities. Finally, there are individuals in these underserved communities who do not understand the importance of preventive care due to limited access to information and education. Many communities and individuals struggle daily without proper healthcare. We can start changing this reality today. #KnowYourNumbers

Rural areas in Africa make up a large proportion of the continent. Since the emergence of COVID‐19 on the continent, major attention and responses have been placed on urban areas. Rural areas are typified by certain challenges which may serve as limitations to the provision of resources and tools for COVID‐19 responses in these areas. These major challenges include limited access to these areas due to poor road networks which may hamper the possibility of conveying resources and manpower. Shortage of healthcare workforce in these areas, poor health facilities/structures and limited access to COVID‐19 diagnostics services may also make containment challenging. It is therefore important that investment should be made in these areas towards providing the necessary tools, resources, and manpower to ensure effective containment of COVID‐19 and to alleviate the plight caused by the pandemic in rural Africa. Rural communities in Africa should not be left behind in COVID‐19 responses.


We travel to rural communities and educate people on health promotion and disease prevention measures to ensure proper health surveillance. We aspire to equip communities with the knowledge and tools necessary that will aid in the prevention and reduction of mortality and morbidity incidents caused by health and first aid emergencies. Additionally, we work closely with local authorities to ensure that their services are tailored to the needs of their communities.


We teach community members how to recognize warning signs and symptoms, along with how to provide basic, safe, and effective first aid care for common and major health emergencies through our free training and development programs.


To collaborate with government agencies and other nonprofit organizations; to influence attitudes and behaviors that will aid in the prevention and reduction of mortality and morbidity in incidents related to health and first aid emergencies.

"We strive to meet the highest levels of ethical standards and moral values to foster trust between community members and our healthcare partners."
