AFRICA is the 2nd largest continent in the world with a land mass of over 30 million square kilometers and under the soil wealth of 30% of the remaining minerals on earth that include the largest reserves of precious metals, gemstones, oil and gas. 50% of Africans are under 25 years of age thus creating availability of a large and energetic work force.
Yet, with every sunrise in Sub-Saharan Africa, almost 90% of the population of 1.1 billion people wake up to repeated challenges of lack of the very basics… Nutrious Food, Clean Water and Medication.
Poor infrastructure and poverty lead to contaminated water, poor food intake, sub-optimal sanitary and hygiene conditions resulting in the spread of diseases like HIV/AIDS, Malaria, Hepatitis B and TB accounting for a large percentage of deaths.
While the people of Africa suffer in silence, it cannot be said that they are abandoned and left to their fate, because there are millions of people in the outside world who are aware of the tragic conditions and are trying to do their best to help in alleviating poverty, illness and improving quality of life. Naturally, the task ahead is humongous as there is so little for so many and there are limitations as to what one can do.
Donor agencies are working assertively on providing food and potable water for the undernourished and medication for the seriously ill. Governments are increasing spends on healthcare, and improving infrastructure. Africans themselves are looking at how best they can improve the situation… YES! There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
At africure, we, in a very small way, have pledged to bring smiles on to the faces of ailing Africans by helping build self-sufficiency in manufacturing low cost, high on quality medication in Africa by Africans for Africa. We will do every bit it takes, to help realise the African Pride of Buying Locally Made Products.
