Poor health and malnutrition may prevent children from attending school and from learning while there. The equivalent of more than 200 million school years are lost each year in low income countries as a result of ill health, and the impact on learning and cognition is equivalent to a deficit of more than 630 million IQ points.
Health: HMTF provides basic first care health screening for the children. We accomplished this through a volunteer medical team of caring individual doctors, nurses, counselors, psychologists, and others here from the state. Currently, we dried out! We desperately need a team. May you want to help in that area by putting a team together.
