HEALTHCARE SCHEMES & SANITATION
A healthy population constitutes a healthy productive society followed by a healthy economy. The poverty-stricken African countries are faced with a difficult challenge to provide sufficient health facilities to an ever-growing population, where the Foundation plays its role to fight the deplorable state of health affairs in such nations through comprehensive programs.
WJ Mudolo Medical Assistance (MMA) Program
Surging medicinal costs during emergencies and instant hospitalization result in severe traumatic distress and financial crisis for the families facing the same. Owing to affordable but restricted and limited insurance plans, most people are not secured with full medical coverage, even in mortal illnesses or life-threatening conditions. The MMA Program seeks to attend to such situations by providing direct medical aid from the Foundation itself or indirectly via funds gathered from well-to-do individuals of the society using the crowd-funding program.

The Foundation through its MHCC Program aims to improve the overall healthcare experience faced by people in the rural and countryside areas of Africa. Under the program, non-profit organizations and respective governments are provided funds to develop healthcare infrastructure and improve the existing facilities so as to provide essential treatments complying with reasonable medical standards which is accessible as well as affordable by all. To work on such improvements, the said organizations are given grants to meet purposes ranging from purchasing and replenishing medical supplies to expending over major mega-projects.
The Foundation, under this program, seeks to encourage research for prevention and treatment of major chronic diseases prevalent within Africa by endowing annual grants to African universities conducting the same. The object of funding such research projects being to discover and come across novel ways of treatment of serious and chronic diseases to be implemented in the most disadvantaged regions of Africa, while promoting creation of a long-term medical alliance between African universities, the Foundation and the public.
The MPPSW Program aims to promote societal health & ultimate economical patterns by encouraging the exercise of family planning within the disadvantaged populations through funds given to non-governmental organizations providing family planning services and convenient options for birth contraception to African families seeking them.
The program further supports organizations struggling to install and/or improve the functioning of health centers, remote clinics, and community health volunteers working towards birth-control awareness campaigns and availability of contraceptive products and services. Advocating its vision for a healthy female population in Africa, the Foundation extends its provision of support to organizations and local governments working to advance the availability of sanitary products for the indigent female population in slums and shanty towns constituting the most backward regions of Africa.
Assessing the effectiveness of activities involving family planning services along with the acceptance and convenient access to sanitary products for young women and girls merits particular attention and is thus being paid close attention in order to meet success. Our awareness programs aim to stimulate understanding of women's separate hygienic needs among students in projects surrounding school settings, where access to hygienic conditions, toilets, and sanitary products is emphasized. Gender mainstreaming and keeping the effects of policies upon people belonging to different genders is key to ensure success of MPPSW programs.
WJ Mudolo Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (MWASH) Program
The foundations of a healthy society rest in the provision of basic hygienic needs of the population. Improvements in water, sanitation and hygiene facilities are a society's first steps towards advancement of health, reduction in malnutrition and mortalities, maternal safety, economic growth, social acceptance and communal dignity. Availability of WASH facilities is guaranteed to be followed by social and economic prosperity arising out of safe living conditions and a healthy satisfied population. The Foundation is engrossed into fulfilling the population's WASH needs in concentrated disadvantaged areas for the welfare of the general public but specifically for vulnerable young women and girls, who are great disadvantaged from deprivation of adequate WASH facilities. The program finds its ideology in the basic human right of access to clean and safe drinking water and access to hygiene and appropriate sanitation.
Owing to the Foundation's belief that safe drinking water, sanitation and appropriate hygiene continues to
be an indisputably fundamental human right for all means and purposes, provision of such facilities remains
a legitimate duty of the respective governments as well as responsible organizations and abled citizens.
Absence of these basic facilities within peoples' reach forces them to make arrangements for it, for example
collecting ample water to fulfill the needs of the entire family, at the expense of a large chunk of time from
their everyday lives.
The WJ Mudolo Foundation, by way of its operations under this program, aims to relieve such hardships
culturally imposed upon individuals of households, and make the availability of WASH facilities mainstream
within the African continent to promote a healthy, skilled population that results in content households and
a prosperous economy.
The WJ Mudolo Foundation is determined that the prevailing water, sanitation and hygiene conditions
Africa direly need, are upgraded and improved. The Foundation under its MWASH program, upon
careful assessment and scrutiny, endows grants to organizations and local governments, who upon
production of documents evidencing previous well-planned projects of the same sort along with proper
plans and feasibility studies to implement measures ensuring the effective availability of WASH facilities in
the future are successful in exhibiting ready willingness, potential, and calculated strategies to render such
projects beneficial and delivering in the longer run for the public.
Proposals received and approved by the Foundation must get down to the following key-points in order to
seek eligibility to be granted funds, subject to further scrutiny:
The MWASH is committed towards achieving its desired goals by taking the following steps:
