Health for africa women and children
Empowering African women and children towards healthier lives through education and access to healthcare.
Our Program goals
At the heart of our organization is a deeply-rooted commitment to the establishment of new churches and the education of future pastors. We are keenly aware that vast expanses of Western Africa are yet to hear the life-altering message of the Gospel. Driven by this understanding, our goal is to plant churches that not only believe in the teachings of the Bible but are also resilient and dynamic. We aspire for these churches to mature and prosper, eventually multiplying and expanding their influence, echoing the biblical principle found in Matthew 28:19, “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations”.
About Our Program
“In the thirty-ninth year of his reign Asa was afflicted with a disease in his feet. Though his disease was severe, even in his illness he did not seek help from the LORD, but only from the physicians.”
– 2 Chronicles 16:12
Myths and misconceptions have long dominated the healthcare landscape in Africa, particularly in relation to illnesses and diseases. Many ailments are often misinterpreted as demonic afflictions or the handiwork of fetish doctors, while only a fraction are recognized as conditions treatable in hospitals. In this backdrop of deep-rooted beliefs and misinformation, WALYM aims to introduce a wave of transformative health education through the Health for Africa Women and Children (HAWC) program.
Our primary objective with the HAWC initiative is to dispel the prevalent myths surrounding health and wellness in West Africa. We aim to provide education that will empower the local communities to take better care of themselves and their children. It is undeniable that women and children often bear the brunt of these health misconceptions and are left vulnerable in critical health situations.
Recognizing this pressing need, WALYM has a visionary plan to establish several health clinics that offer general practice services. Alongside these, we aim to create dedicated pediatric units to address the unique health needs of children. Our mission is to provide accessible and effective healthcare services to those most in need within the West African communities.
The HAWC program also serves as a platform for WALYM to actively combat malaria and other prevalent tropical diseases in West Africa. We believe that through education, awareness, and direct healthcare intervention, we can significantly improve the health and wellbeing of West African communities.
