In rural Kenya, 70% of women and children lack access to appropriate primary healthcare. On average, there are 500,000 maternal deaths in the country each year because of poor access to reproductive healthcare and infrastructure. And we know that 40% of rural Kenyans live in poverty compared to 28% in urban areas.
Dandelion Africa is determined to change the health and economic outcomes for women in rural Kenya. It is a matter of life and death that simply cannot wait.
