LAKE VICTORIA CHILDREN'S EMERGENCY FUND
YOUR DONATION CAN SAVE THE LIFE OF A CHILD
The Lake Victoria Children’s Emergency Health Fund assists vulnerable children and their families when dealing with emergency medical situations. The children live on Ukerewe Island in Lake Victoria, Tanzania, one of the most isolated, poverty stricken communities in the country. Health care practitioners see many medical diseases and life threatening emergencies including, for example, malnutrition, club feet, malaria, schistosomiasis, broken and infected bones, cholera, intestinal worms, and TB. The fund will cover health insurance, medical testing, treatment, surgery, transportation, food, and medications. This fund supports children who cannot afford medical treatment and would otherwise go without, at great risk to their health and well being.
CACHA works closely with Lake Victoria Children’s organization, the small local registered non-profit organization working to provide children with a better today and a brighter tomorrow with no government or stable, ongoing funding. They work closely with the local hospital to ensure that children receive the best treatment possible. Local volunteer community ambassadors are responsible to recommend children as medical needs arise and the decision on expenses to be paid in each medical situation is made by the LVC chairman. LVC provides CACHA with a report each year of children helped and expenses met.
Thank you in advance for your caring and generosity.
