      • NEF in Mali: Our Mission in Action

        from Near East Foundation Added 25 1 0

        The story of how a small rainwater collection dam in the Malian village of Pélou came to be is a short but meaningful reflection of NEF's work around the world. Partnering with the Embassy of the Netherlands in Bamako, NEF and the village leaders discussed how best to improve the livelihoods and food security of the people in the area. the community, with help from NEF came together to make these improvements. NEF works within partner communities to help them understand their own needs, decide what improvement to make based on their individual needs, and help them overcome obstacles to sustainable development, prosperity and peace. Our work is grounded in the belief that, to play an active role in the development of their communities and countries, people need opportunities and tools: the knowledge to participate in civic and economic life, a voice in public decisions that affect their wellbeing, and a means of making a meaningful living.

              29:21

              from Selase Kove-Seyram Added 2 0 0

              Using the real life experiences of 30-year old Fauzia Ibrahim, this documentary investigates a traditional “treatment” of sickle cell disease which involves cutting several openings into the skin with knives to introduce boiled herbs directly into the blood stream. Administered to children without any anesthesia, it results in permanent scarring and children missing weeks of school. WHO projects that as many as 30 percent of Ghanaians are carriers of the sickle cell trait in a country where there is only one doctor per 17,700 people. The documentary - filmed in parts of Ghana and Nigeria - explores the myths and realities of sickle cell disease in parts of West Africa, using public documents, research data, interviews with experts and the real life experiences of some sickle cell patients.

                    Mumudu Savage (interviewed above) is the Head of the Wheelchair department and wouldn't be in a wheelchair if it wasn't for a vaccination that went wrong as a child. Savage explains that his life has been easier than most because he has grown up with the challenges of being bound by a wheel chair and serves as a councillor to anyone that finds themselves in a similar situation.
