World Health Day 2019
………. a message from Land of Hope
Today, our children in Land of Hope join the rest of the world to mark the 2019 World Health Day with a strong message “Health for all Children”
With many children in Africa and other parts of the world dying as a result of lack of access to basic health care, the fact that access to basic health care is as important as being the right of every child; can not be over emphasized.
As it relates to our work, many cases of child witch accusations
are as a result of suffering from one health
challenge or the other leading to deformation.
Also, many children burn with deformations or abnormalities resulting from lack of access to basic medical attention before and during birth are branded witches by the locals.
Such children suffer stigmatization and abuse from birth which leads to abandonment as they grow.
It’s there important that we rise to the challenge of having every child have access to basic medical care.
In Land of Hope, child’s health care remains a top priority.
Today the children call on us, the governments and everyone to help every child access good health care.
