Burkina Faso Emergency appeal

Burkina Faso Emergency appeal

Malaria and dengue fever impact everyone in Burkina Faso currently, with certain groups, including pregnant women, children under five, and displaced persons, at higher risks. Additionally, there are growing concerns about hygiene-related diseases within the population. On top of all these issues, the influx of displaced persons into Bobo-Dioulasso has led to increased occurrences of common diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B, and tuberculosis among these groups.

Therefore, preventative measures are essential for addressing these health issues.

Distributing mosquito nets, spraying medical centres, and ensuring early detection and management of these diseases are critical steps in saving lives.

We are also planning to help those who cannot afford buying medicines, including many internally displaced people who have fled to Bobo because of jihadist violence in their own rural communities.

Please give generously. Thank you.
