Salam Zetu “our greetings” – in partnership with the International Association for Refugees

Dzaleka health centre, located within the camp, is a government-owned facility supported by UNHCR. It provides primary healthcare services to both camp residents and the host community. a population of about 80,000 people. Essential drugs are provided by central medical stores, UNHCR and support from other partners, but supplies cannot meet the demand, which is especially worrisome since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

In partnership with International Association for Refugees – Canada, who is in turn partnered with both There Is Hope and Health Partners International Canada, Little Acts has joined this effort to help pay for the packaging and shipment of 20 Humanitarian Medical Kits (HMKs) containing donated medical supplies at an estimated cost of $13,000. Each kit provides treatment to 600 people. More than 12,000 persons were helped by the most recent shipment from the IAFR and HPIC.

Help us to raise the additional funds (at the time of publishing approximately $4,000) needed to complete the next shipment, scheduled for November 2020. This shipment was delivered in January, but you can still support other ongoing fundraising via our partner IAFR Canada by clicking the donation button.
