Our Vision for Health Care

Bread and Water for Africa® understands that preventative healthcare and basic medicines can do much to save lives of millions in sub-Saharan Africa. Access to healthcare facilities is critical for children and mothers particularly in remote regions of the continent to avoid needless death.

THE CHALLENGES

The risk of maternal mortality is greatest for girls under 15 years old and complications from pregnancy and childbirth is the leading cause of death among adolescent girls in developing countries. Children in sub-Saharan Africa are 15 times more likely to die before the age of 5 than in developed countries. More than half of under-5 child deaths are due to diseases that preventable and treatable through simple, affordable interventions.

WHAT Bread and Water for Africa® IS DOING

We are working with our partners in Cameroon, Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and Zambia to provide access to health care services for tens of thousands. In Cameroon, your support has helpedus  to construct a clinic and a primary school.

WHERE AND WHO WE WORK WITH

Millions of Africans die each year from preventable causes such as poor nutrition, lack of clean drinking water, infectious diseases like AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, and treatable diseases such as measles and polio.

OUR IMPACT IN 2017
