HEALTH FOR EVERYONE

THE VILLAGES

 

 Liga Community Health is focused on disease prevention, health education and improvement of well-being of the rural indigenous, or “the forgotten people.” We do that by providing means to clean water through our Biosand filter project, regular medical team visits, and health education. Our goal is to work cooperatively with these groups, sharing our expertise to further their autonomy.

Our clean water program began in 2016 to eliminate common water-borne disease in northern Sinaloa. 

LIGA COMMUNITY HEALTH

Driven off their lands by the Spanish in the 15th century, the indigenous Mayo, Yaqui and Tarahumara tribes of northern Sinaloa have adapted and survived, although not without deprivation and discrimination. 

Liga Community Health is focused on disease prevention, health education and improvement of well-being of these rural indigenous, or “the forgotten people.” We do that by providing means to clean water through our Biosand filter project, regular medical team visits, and health education. Our goal is to work cooperatively with these groups, sharing our expertise to further their autonomy.  

     

The Water Project is growing rapidly from a test phase of 22 working filters in 2017 to a network of 925 filters by the end of 2018, and over 1,500 working filters by 2019. 

 

The project requires a strong commitment to education and maintenance by the local people,  and the cooperation of organizations such as Rotary International the Lions Club.

COVID is ravaging already compromised nutritionally deficient families. We are making sure food is distributed and also, in cooperation with the Flying Doctors of Mercy, as of June 30, two hundred kids receive monthly vitamin pre- and probiotic support along with a smoothie of fruits, vegetables, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
