To help children, you must address the problems affecting them. Through targeted projects, HEED is working to improve access to the essentials one remote community needs to thrive.
HEED is transforming lives through health education and providing access to medical care.
In October 2020, HEED opened the Ebenezer Medical Center to provide the first qualified medical care in the area. The nearest medical center was 15 kilometers away and no one in the area owns a vehicle. Our clinic provides access to medical care for over 6,000 people in our 5-village service area.

Our clinical officer, Nurse Pamela, also provides medical care for the staff, teachers, support staff and students who attend HEED’s primary and high schools.
HEED provides several other medical interventions to the community including community health workshops, consistent fluoride and anti-parasitic treatments for students, reproductive health training, reusable menstrual kits through partnership with Days for Girls, vision testing and glasses, and an occasional distribution of mosquito nets to help prevent malaria.
