ICAN ORGANIZATION in Africa
ICAN projects reach vulnerable populations in Senegal, Benin, Togo, Cameroon, Gabon, Haiti, and Equatorial Guinea.
Nearly 170 million poor people in Africa need humanitarian assistance because of malnutrition, health inequality, and the well-being of children and families.
Hundreds of thousands of infants, children, women, and families remain locked in a vicious cycle of poverty conditions, and large numbers of children continue to be infected with HIV.
The needs in the region are enormous.
According to UNICEF’s projections:
over 22 million people need help to get enough food and nutrition
over 93 million people need help to get adequate health care
some 40 million people need help access safe water
over 42 million children need help to get an education
