Extract and Description of this News: The inhabitants of rural villages do not have access to primary care, and most medical centres are often several hours away on foot. The harshness of life here means we often get hurt, but nothing is available to treat ourselves—no doctor, knowledge, medical equipment and, of course, no antiseptic or medicine. These injuries can lead to the death of a child or an adult if they get worse. We must therefore act quickly. Fair Future, for years, has empowered schools and families in ultra-rural communities to take action in the event of an accident. Today, we are taking another step in this program. - Thank you for your interest.
