HEAL

Healing is at the heart of Engage Now Africa. Providing access to our health posts, clinics, medical services, and clean water saves and improves lives. 

We work with ministries of health and their professional staff in-country, with hospitals, and with other healthcare providers to ensure access to basic health services, life-saving surgeries, and major medical care when needed.

LIVES IMPACTED THROUGH HEAL INITIATIVES

PROJECTS RECENTLY COMPLETED

Maternal Center for Health

In 2019 we built a Maternal Child Hospital (MCH), the first maternal hospital in rural Ethiopia. The hospital serves Debre Zeit and its surrounding population of 78,800. This incredible facility assists women with childbirth, labor and delivery, and recovery.

Prior to the MCH, one main hospital served over 1 million people. Women and children had to compete for adequate care and were often forced to choose home deliveries with a midwife or on their own due insufficient resources at the main hospital. Our MCH will be equipped with triage, laboratory, delivery, surgical, nurses, medication, and storage rooms.

Health Posts & Maternal Clinics

We build health posts and maternal clinics that provide access to basic and maternal health care for vulnerable communities.

Medical Services

We provide access to major medical intervention, life-saving treatments, medicine, and surgeries from preferred physicians, clinics, and hospitals.

Water & Sanitation

We dig clean water wells, build latrines, and teach hygiene and sanitation trainings in communities that previously had no access to these basic needs and resources.

Habtamu Gemechu, Community Health Worker

“Our village can now receive treatment for malaria, … for diseases, family planning, and so much more.  We do not need to travel far distances to a health clinic but can receive help right in our village!”

Fikirte, Nurse

“This clinic has helped me in so many ways, I have given birth to two children in this clinic; they delivered them safe and sound. The clinic is very fine. This community was so bad when there was no clinic. We appreciate support for the establishment of this clinic in this community!”

Theresa Kapaka, Recipient

“Life in this community was woeful when there was no clinic, can you imaging we used to walk from this community to Government hospital, sometimes we lost our love once due to distance to get medical attention, but with the timely intervention of this clinic in our community our lives are now saved.”
