Project "Sharity" - Sharing
At Richland Hub, our commitment is to our communities and the farming families who gave so much from their land - through our products, to maximize our impact to underserved rural communities in Africa focusing on health services.
Part of every sale goes toward building clinics to provide the basic health care services in rural areas of Tanzania.
Access to healthcare services is the basic need to any human and critical to good health, yet many rural areas in developing countries are facing a variety of access barriers that limit their ability to obtain the care they need. Women, facing issues of maternal and child health due to lack of access to medical facility.
Our first project is out of rural part of Tanzania, an East African country off the coast of Indian ocean. Our goal is to contribute in improving an access to equitable, acceptable, and affordable quality health services for the community, especially women and children.
We can define access to the healthcare as - access to the health services to achive the best possible health outcome
Ideally, anyone should be able to conveniently access services such as primary care, emergency care, and public health services. To improve overall physical health, disease prevention and detection, diagnosis, treatment, avoiding preventable deaths, increase life expectancy. And to better the quality of life.
First clinic - ISUBULA & MASOKO VILLAGE, RUNGWE District in Mbeya Region, Tanzania.
This project will construct a health clinic in the village to serve a village of 2,235 people, of which one-third are children. There are currently no health facilities in this village, and the community must walk up to 11 kilometers (7 miles) for basic health services and 29 kilometer(18 miles) to reach disctrict hospital. Upon complition the government has agreed to provide a healthcare worker, basic medicines, and basic equipments. Having access to a clinic will significantly decrease deaths from malaria and other waterborne diseases and provide basic health education, especially women.

To put it quite simply, people in this community will be healthier and lives will be saved.
In our August update we set a goal, we needed to raise $10,000 by Jan 2023 to complete the first construction phase of this clinic project, and we are currently working on this goal. A special thank you to all of our customers for the support!! Greatly appreacted!. Know that your support unable to bring a small village in rural Tanzania its first health clinic.
What next? The current phase of construction of the clinic will continue in sub-sections as the fund raising continuing.
We will keep our customers and supporters the progress of the project monthly.
Our hope is the project will provide the basic healthcare needs for the community and increase the overall well being of the village by helping pregnant women have safer births, providing preventative interventions and health education for malaria and HIV, immunizing children, and providing treatments for waterborne disease, etc. The clinic will also contribute to the local economy by keeping people healthy enough to work through the agriculture season,produce great produce were're all get to enjoy and not fall victim to illnesses that keep them from tending their fields.
