Powerful Women Take The Stage: Edith Chima-Orji
Provide Medicare to the rural areas in Africa
We are inspired towards providing medical succor to rural Africa because a good number of them did not have access to medicare ie clinic s and hospitals. They trek about 10 miles in order to have access to clinic or health center.
Adequate health care is not easily accessible and has high costs in the poor

|What do you need for your project? Team Members? Training? Funding? Opportunities? Please describe in detail.||
During our first mission, we were not able to reach all the sick but a fragment. Therefore we need enough funds to buy adequate medicine, supplies and light medical equipment to enable us reach a sizeable number of them, far more than what we did in our first mission.
