Majority of African countries have inadequate hospitals to solve the health problems of the continually growing population. I have to confess that our people in Africa die of the treatable diseases. Specialized treatments such as cancer and complicated surgeries must be done abroad hence capital to flight. So much is the Medical Tourism that Africa is losing her much-needed funds to the more established countries.
Shelter of hope seek to address these challenges by making “the people” believe that their health should be their first priority. We do this by organizing campaign and advocacy awareness seminars. We collaborate with local health departmental heads to reach the community where we teach them safe hygiene and leaving standards such as growing healthy foods, reducing neighboring wastes, planting trees, we go as far as offering nutrition meal supports to the marginalized groups, help on cleaning the parks and the streets, administer basic treatment to the affected street families and other community members.
