¿Cuál es la injusticia que estamos intentando resolver?
Health Care is a serious issue in Africa, especially Liberia. People living in the rural communities in Liberia are denied of a basic right, proper health care facilities. Children die on the way to the hospital because these hospitals are located far from the villages. People tend to seek herbal treatment due to lack of Health Facilities. The aim of this project is to provide Mobile Health services to the inhabitants of rural Bong County, Liberia.
