The second leading disease in our community is peptic ulcers, caused by spending the whole day on an empty stomach. Malaria is also very common in our community. Two diseases not listed that are a threat to us are Hepatitis B and breast cancer.


We thank you for you timely, tireless assistance.


We request more funding through linking us to partners to raise funds for the clinic, in order to get anti-malaria drugs, malaria test strips, hepatitis, and HIV/AIDS strips, and have mosquito nets to help reduce malaria.

Long Live Brighter Brains Institute and its members and partners.

sincerely yours,

Kambasu Zedekia, clinic attendant
