In addition, The Green Tara Trust is being supported to set up birthing centres and outreach ante /post-natal support in Nawalparasi, Nepal.
Prevention of Sickness:
Piped water and water boreholes have been provided in Uganda by Aim for Change, leading to improvements in health and hygiene, as well as preventing the spread of waterborne diseases and infections. With the support of The Foundation, Y Care International has been able to fund 8 new medical dispensaries in the slums of Madagascar helping to reduce the risk of disease and improving youth awareness of the importance of hygiene and sanitation.
