Everything from garbage collection to cleaning the gutters is overseen by the women of Plan International Burkina, their male colleagues, all of whom improvise as surface technicians. They made the area clean to provide a better environment for sick children and staff.

What we do concerns everyone. We are all referred to hospitals because we are sick or because our children are sick. Personnel often have difficulties in reaching and following all activities on their own.

As an organization that works for the well-being of children, especially to promote the rights of women and girls, it was a good challenge that we met for this event this morning. “Nicole Hien, head of the Plan International Burkina women’s forum, explained at first glance.

After the collection, the women’s forum made a donation of food and hygiene items for sick children at Charles De Gaulle Children’s Hospital.

Mainly soap bags, oil cans, blankets, juice boxes, cleaning supplies, biscuit boxes, rice bags…

According to the head of the women’s forum, this activity falls under the mandate of Plan International Burkina. ” In its establishment, the plan is the basis of child sponsorship. We believe that supporting structures that work for the well-being of children is something we must do every day at Plan Burkina level. ‘, Nicole Hien explained.

The beneficiary nature of the donation, represented by Dori Daniel, quality director of pediatrics, thanked the homeowners for the day they got their hands dirty by not only opening their arms, but cleaning their surroundings.

Thanks to the women’s forum for the donation. They have joined us to make the framework of care we give to children cleaner today, and it is a great activity they are doing. Thank you for the gift they brought to the women’s forum and the food for the children. It is true that care is medicine, but food is also important and we want to thank them”, said Dori Daniel happily.

As a reminder, this event is part of commemorating International Women’s Rights Day. This is in addition to other activities already carried out such as aerobics session, public lecture and training for young girls.
