    Need

    In the village of Abenta, Ghana, children are really suffering and not getting medical treatment because they are too far away from a medical clinic. Pregnant women have walk miles down a large hill to get any form of medical care.

    Currently people who get sick seek advice from traditional sources of medicine e.g. Witch doctors
