Children are the messages we send to the future- and also one of our most vulnerable populations. In our region, children still die from diarrheal disease and respiratory infections, or suffer from tuberculosis or heart defects that go untreated. Less life-threatening issues like scabies, worms, dental cavities and poor nutrition cause school absences and chronic debilitation.
Stocking a pediatric kit with items most often needed in the first five years of life- soap, children's vitamins, de-worming medication, oral health tools, and oral rehydration solution, along with monitoring growth and development- helps to ensure a healthy start for the future leaders of the Ngöbe communities.
