“I want to save people’s lives, that’s what I want to do when I grow up,” says Argentina.
Her community doesn’t have its own health facility, so health care is something that the young girl doesn’t take for granted.
When a villager needs skilled health care they have to walk miles to reach a proper facility. To minimize the risks, World Vision organizes health committees to promote hygiene and other practices to prevent children, in particular, from falling sick.
Committee members encourage pregnant women to seek medical care and deliver their babies at the clinic.
To fight malaria, World Vision distributes mosquito nets, and provides training on how to use them.
As a sponsored child, Argentina has confidence that she can follow her dreams and aim to be a medical provider, too.
