Global Assistance is currently collaborating with organizations throughout Africa where the needs are so basic and so fundamental that generally just about any area of Africa is in need of help. Food, medical supplies, medication, clothing, vegetable seeds and the list goes on! Poverty is rampant; AIDS is affecting up to one-half of the population of some nations; education is minimal in much of rural Africa; food is in short supply due to drought and lack of knowledge of modern agricultural techniques. In some countries Global Assistance is partnering with World Children’s Fund and Medical Mission International to assist in alleviating the suffering of the poor and needy. Among some of the countries served in Africa are Zimbabwe, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Ethiopia, Niger, Sudan, South Africa, Mozambique and Burkina Faso.
