BENEFITING: GEORGES MALAIKA FOUNDATIONINCORPORATED
Malaika is committed to ensuring our girls are happy and healthy in the classroom and at home. The Malaika team was devastated in December 2015 when one of our Grade 1 students, Myriam, passed away due to an illness. The lack of proper health facilities in Kalebuka meant that Myriam did not receive the care she needed. The village, in which we operate, does not have any clinics. Although Malaika provides two health checks per year, we would like to increase the frequency of these and dedicate a space for the health of our students and where a doctor can conduct exams. An onsite infirmary will ensure the tragedy that happened with Myriam will not happen again. The center will cost 40,000USD. The health center will provide our staff, families, and supporters peace of mind while the girls attend classes with a doctor nearby.
