In the time it will take you to read this post, it is estimated that two children would have died in Nigeria. In many of these cases, poor access to adequate healthcare is the main culprit.

According to the World Health Organisation, the risk of a child dying before reaching five years of age is still seven times higher in Africa (81 per 1,000 live births) than it is in Europe (11 per 1,000 live births).

In seven African countries, the under-five mortality rate is more than 100 per 1,000 live births and in more than half of these cases, the deaths are due to conditions that could be prevented by simple, affordable treatment.

African Health and Education Fund is involved in various community projects in Africa, to improve the living conditions of the local communities through the provision of medical supplies to rural hospitals and clinics, books and supplies to public schools, improvements of public school facilities, and award of academic scholarships to needy students.

Our working goal is to provide educational facilities more conducive to learning, award more academic scholarships to underprivileged students, and ship medical supplies to local communities in Africa who currently lack adequate medical care, to stem the untimely deaths of people from preventable and treatable diseases.

This Go Fund Me initiative will support our existing projects in Nigeria in the first quarter of 2017, during which we are shipping a 40-foot container, with donated medical and school supplies to Nigeria. 100% of all donated funds will be applied to the initiatives and full account of our expenditures will be provided on our website at the end of the first quarter. 
 
Your generosity makes it possible for students, regardless of their financial situation, to seize the opportunity to attend school.  It also helps us to improve the health condition and intellectual development of thousands of impoverished communities, who would otherwise die from preventable or treatable diseases, or study in environments not conducive to learning.
-Michael Onas, Executive Director
