Niger is one of the poorest countries in sub-Saharan Africa. Over forty percent of children under five are chronically malnourished, and lack of access to quality health care is a particularly pressing problem in rural areas, where the majority of people live.

Since  2012, we have provided Kirker Hospital in Niger with more than $45 million in urgently needed medicines to serve the poorest. Located in Eastern Niger, near the edge of Lake Chad, Kirker Hospital provides health care and services to people from Niger, Chad, Cameroon, Nigeria, and refugees fleeing the violence from terrorist group Boko Haram and serves about 30,000 patients a year.
