International HELP is partnering with a local organization in Gwanda, Zimbabwe called the Educational Trust Foundation. Over 20,000 people live in Gwanda without health knowledge or good healthcare. We are currently developing a health education training program to implement later in 2022.
This project will be dedicated to Shirlene “Pom Pom“ Starkey and will be called “The Pom Pom Zimbabwe Project.” Shirlene was always an incredible supporter of International HELP. It is our honor to dedicate this project in her memory.
There is a great need for health education in this area. Many of the leading causes of death and diseases like TB, malnutrition, and HIV/AIDS could be prevented through health education.
Our goal is to empower, educate, and equip 25 local people in Gwanda, Zimbabwe with the skills and resources to be Community Health Workers.
You can contribute via check (no transaction fees) or via our online donation form below.
