HEALTHCARE HOUSES MOZAMBIQUE
Our center is located in Monapo and we work in four districts within Nampula Province.
We help Mozambicans in remote villages establish health posts for natural medicine. The people in the villages choose the health workers.
These health workers participate in monthly seminars where they are taught about local medicinal plants.
They learn how to cultivate those plants, how to make medicine from them and how to treat the sick with that medicine. When they return to their villages they are able to start a garden and treat the sick.
Health Issues: malaria, cholera, and water borne diseases and HIV Aids
Average Income: less than US$2 per day
Mozambique is often described as one of the world’s poorest countries
