Malaria is the most deadly African disease. It takes toll in places in which lack of access to medications, takes away the hope to fight the bacterium, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. In the central part of the threatened area is a small village of Saoudé in the mountainous northern region of Togo. There is a small pharmacy here for the local population, managed by Małgosia Tomaszewska, a lay missionary, and we want to help her in the project very much. By spending 33 PLN, you will provide 100 quinine tablets for the pharmacy.
The pharmacy in Saoudé is open five days a week for everyone. The patients who come to pick up their medicines bring their diagnostic cards and prescriptions. Medicines are distributed free of charge, because being aware of the situation of the locals, we could not do otherwise. At the same time, we don’t want the patients to get used to getting free medications, therefore we accept corn, sorghum and other crops as payment. The food gathered is then distributed to those who have no supplies and have nothing to eat.
COST OF 100 TABLETS 33 PLN.
