The Mali Health Organizing Project is a US-based nonprofit organization that works in Mali’s urban areas to improve women’s and children’s health. In January, we met with them to share ideas and discuss how we might help one another.
One of Mali Health’s collaborators, Dr. Diakaridia Traore, is currently helping us to review materials before translation. And we think that the book will be a tremendous resource for their team of community health workers. So we were pleased to receive these words of support from their Executive Director, Kris Ansin:
We commend the important work being done by the Dokotoro Project to translate this vital text into Mali’s most widely spoken language. As the introduction to Where There is No Doctor puts it, “even where there are doctors, people should take the lead in their own healthcare” – but in order to do that, they need educational resources. This translation is a practical and important step to removing barriers and empowering communities, both peri-urban and rural, to be proactive in the pursuit of better health.
If you want to help us make this life-saving information available to regular people in Mali, please consider making a donation during our Have a Heart for Mali campaign. Help us reach our goal of $20,000 by March 31!
