Helping the sick and dying
One of Direct Aid for Africa’s priorities is to get Medical help to the sick and
provide hospice care for the dying
We are working hard to get KAVU clinic upgraded to hospital status.
Recently DAFA has confirmed it will be aiding the people of east Pokot in conjunction with Kibanda by giving them 5K euros for food supplies. They have been reduced to eating weeds and their own goats, the former of which needs to be boiled for two hours before being edible.
HUNGRY CHILDREN AT THE FEEDING STATION IN MALAWIWe have also contributed £2k for the renewal of an emergency food program for 200 children in Malawi (pictured above). We have given £5K to Camphill, Hermanus, South Africa to assist with the transportation of special needs children to and from school. Dafa have agreed in principle to help raise Kavu clinic to Hospital status. This will be one of DAFA’s largest projects costing in excess of £150k. At the moment they have one doctor working 24/7. After the upgrade the government will supply and pay 3 doctors and 3 nurses. We will keep the site updated with news of this great project. Thousands of pieces of furniture donated from schools in Suffolk area will soon be making their way to deprived schools in Zambia.
