Build a Village: Local Health

Build a Village: Local Health




Access to basic health services is not always easy for people living in poor or marginalised communities. Your gift will help families facing poverty grow in their awareness of issues around health and sanitation, and gain access to better health care.

This gift includes:

  • A miniature popup health clinic to assemble.
  • A card with information card on how your gift helps.
  • A blank envelope for your card.
How your gift helps

Tearfund's partners understand their local communities, working at the grass roots to support people to reach their God-given potential. They look at the big picture – working together with communities on a range of activities to address poverty.

By purchasing from our Build a Village range, you’re contributing to our partners’ work in local communities and empowering people to reach their God-given potential.

As a little reminder of your donation, we’ve included a small building for you to put together at home, church or school. You can decorate it, set it up and share it with friends and family.
