Cases of jigger infested and malnourished children in Gwasi Division, is rampant in the upcountry, especially in low income families and child headed households. Other cases however, are extremely linked to hygiene and sanitation and to some extent ignorance. But the effect is huge when the victim is malnourished and with little awareness, these children are left at the mercy of untimely death. It is even worse when the Child is diagnosed with HIV/AIDS.
Majority of these children live in the remote villages with high poverty level. Others are street kids with no place to call home.
I started working with children since 2009 as a volunteer children Rights activist. But I came to realize that much more job is needed to care for and treatment of Malnourished kids, Especially those diagnosed with HIV/AIDs.
Jiggers are small insects that feed on the host and bury themselves inside the body and can multiply millions of eggs with a short period of time. Poor living conditions are generally the cause for jigger infestationkids. Also Poverty and ignorance doubles the tragedy.
I am asking for your support in whichever way possible to take care of such cases for medical experts and food for proper nutrition. The magnitude of the problem is currently at 5000 victims per 22 Villages.
Your donation will Help save the lives of these children and improve the condition of living.
For children born inside the prisons because their mothers are serving jail sentence, I normally visit them with psychosocial support; giving out free blankets, clothes, shoes, Milk, Sugar, Rice, Soaps and creams, and detergents.
In my plan I also attend to 150 street kids by feeding them twice a month in the streets. This is a mobile activity which has helped control the use of harmful drugs and chewing of gum among the street kids.
I need your generous donation to give a life changing experience in this part of the world. Your contribution will be highly appreciated.
