Healthcare attendance in isolated areas of India

In the North of the state of Maharashtra, in India, there live a tribe called “korkus”; they live in the isolated jungle and they are a very poor population.  Most “korkus” families live below the poverty threshold (more than 70%) with a high illiteracy rate (more than 60%) and their main livelihood, agriculture, is scarce.

In front of this situation, entities such as Manos Unidas carry out many projects in order to face malnutrition, prevent diseases, and improve hygienic-sanitary practices among tribal “korkus” populations in the Melghat region.

logoIn their new challenge, Nicequest users will help 2.000 people who live in isolated areas of India to have access to a healthcare attention trough Manos Unidas.

manos_unidasThis new project starts after completing the last campaign in which they facilitate the access to drinking water to more than 1.000 children, an important fact in order to prevent new cases of cholera (you can remember the project HERE).

Remember that if you want, you can follow the donation process HERE.
