Action Africa has been addressing the health problems by holding free clinics. At each clinic over 1,000 adults and children receive the vitamins and medications necessary to live a healthy life. They cannot afford to pay a doctor or to buy reliable vitamins and medications. Villagers and medical personnel report that the most glaring medical problems are: malaria, worms, hypertension, arthritis, and typhoid. We carry the medical supplies from the United States directly to the village, and physicians and nurses from the city come and volunteer their services. In collaboration with village chiefs and elders, teachers, African volunteer medical teams, and other village associations, Action Africa, Inc. has served several thousand people over the last 5 years.
Multivitamins and Over the Counter Pain Relief Drive
St. Teresa of Avila Church, in Washington, D.C., St. Michael’s Church in Mt. Airy, MD., and the NOVA Catholic Community in Arlington VA., have partnered with Action Africa, Inc. in a drive for medical supplies to support the free clinics. Action Africa, Inc. is collecting multivitamins for children and adults and over the counter pain relief medications for free medical clinics in sub-Saharan Africa. These medications are carried directly to the village and distributed at the clinics by physicians and nurses who donate their time.
