Support Namuli’s community-led health priorities
One Major Challenge
these complementary actions will address is the fact that lack of healthcare is a major driver of deforestation on the mountain, as people clear land to pay for expensive and inaccessible services.
has diminished the vast supplies of plants used in Lomwe traditional medicine, making them scarce and treatments more expensive. Reforestation will protect the land where these important plants grow.
This dual effort
will improve health while preserving local culture and protect local biodiversity and water sources for millions downstream.
Healthier community members
means kids can thrive at school and adults can thrive at managing their agricultural fields and sustaining their families.
We call this 360° Community-Led change: by identifying and acting on one community priority, Mucunha community members are building a Thriving Future that includes their physical, cultural and environmental health.
We invite you to give now to support the Mucunha community as they advance their own priorities when it comes to health.
Gifts will offer immediate support to the Mucunha community as they build the health center. But it will also support the ongoing Thriving Futures process that makes this type of 360° Community-Led change possible.
