A Shorter Walk

For better health

Wasifa used to travel 45-60 minutes, from her small village to a city hospital, for diabetes testing.

Her blood sugar levels were high because she could not afford the necessary medication, after paying her travel expenses. Often times, the hospital did not even carry the correct medication she needed.

When Tearfund Canada’s partner MEDAIR opened a clinic just a 10 minute walk from Wasifa’s home, accessing healthcare was no longer an issue for her. This was the first time Wasifa was able to receive proper treatment for her diabetes, through suitable medical equipment and medication.

Thanks to the establishment of her local clinic, Wasifa is able to live a healthy, active life. When you partner with Tearfund Canada, you are partnering with overseas organizations to ensure that more people have access to the services they need!

You can impact a family’s life by bringing an end to poverty

The solution to poverty is more than physical, it’s spiritual. Instead of handouts, you will be partnering with local churches to permanently lift families out of poverty. Will you join us?
