This is a health program that has been set up to cater for the medical needs of children and their parents from the tea picking population in order to reduce child mortality and malnutrition in Tigoni area.

Through this program, the beneficiaries will have access to medical services which include regular check-ups, doctor’s consultation, counseling services and treatment in terms of medication or procedural interventions, such as surgery.
