Description

Improve the health and wellbeing of women. Support women through education and training about important health, hygiene and reproductive issues. Empower women to become health activists in their communities, sharing what they’ve learnt with others and creating change.

How your gift helps

TEAR’s partner Oasis in Mozambique is working alongside the local church to improve the health and wellbeing of women in the Manga Loforte area of the port city Beira.

“Care groups” of local women are learning about important health and hygiene messages. They’re becoming health activists in their communities, sharing what they’ve learnt with others and sparking change.

Marquina Rondao (not pictured), a mother of six children, is one of these women. Before she joined the care group, she had many health problems and so did others in the community. Marquina says: “I joined Oasis to create change in the community I live in, so that there is better health and environmental hygiene.”

Marquina and the other women learned simple steps to improve health, including washing hands after carrying coal to the stove. She now works with pregnant women to monitor the pregnancy until delivery, and support new mothers with young babies.

She says: “God gave me this gift so I can learn and teach others. I give thanks to God for the gift he’s given me. My dream is that this gift will increase so that I don’t become weaker and that my community can become stronger.”

Your gift of Women’s Health is contributing to projects like this one and making a difference in the lives of those facing poverty and marginalisation.
