The Foundation’s Vision
The Omer Yembe Foundation has five areas of focus, which are all circled around health and education. There is a vicious cycle related to poverty when it comes to these two fundamentals- healthcare and education. When people are poor and cannot afford their healthcare needs, they fall sick, suffer and some of them die. Some of them are just in a chronic state of pain and suffering and get even poorer as a result of this. It becomes a terrible vicious cycle affecting families and communities. Bringing help to the needy is sometimes a complicated affair. However, consider that ANY help is better than no help and everyone regardless of their circumstances deserves healthcare and education. Our vision is to break this vicious cycle of the direct impact of poverty on the health and education of the needy, staring with the people in Mbot and surrounding villages.
