Solving the Root Causes of Treatable Diseases
Did you know that millions of people, living in the poorest countries on Earth, die each year from diseases and health problems that are preventable and treatable? In most cases, the health needs of a village or community are obvious, but the causes of the health crisis may not be. Without clinics, pharmaceticals and vaccines, it can be hard to improve the status of health in a community, but World Neighbors works to make connections that will improve the health of entire villages forever.
How do we do this? We start with education and training. We train villagers in communities to become volunteer community health experts. We give them the information that they need to work with children and families in their own communities to improve health.
