GoalThe goal of this project is to equip 40 Health Builders to perform primary health services in impoverished communities in South Africa.
SummaryThis White Cross project seeks to raise $23,530 annually to equip Health Builders in South Africa with Health Kits.
DescriptionThis project seeks to train and equip 40 Health Builders with Galilean Health Kits and training so they can provide good care to the KwaZulu-Natal community. Equipping Health Builders will build capacity to execute practical health ministry. This will extend and improve the lives of people suffering extreme disease burdens. This project will create an awareness of health professional roles for young underemployed people in Zululand and other Southern African locations. This project will tackle community health issues of HIV, high blood pressure, prediabetes and diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol and malaria. This Health Building project along with ongoing motivation can effectively reverse some 90% of these chronic disease burdens. The keys are a sustained effort with sustained funding.
