Through the Women's Center of Dakar and partnerships with Go Doc Go, Le Korsa is doing more than ever before to improve women's healthcare in Senegal.
Dr. Juliette Faye at the Women's Center of Dakar.
Le Korsa is making more of a difference than ever before concerning women’s healthcare in Senegal. As knowledge increases in this vital area of medical care and more services become available for Senegalese women, we gladly offer our support. It has become one of our priorities.
As most of you know, we have created and provide the financing for Keur Djiguene Yi, the Women’s Health Center in Dakar. (The Wolof name translates literally to “A Gathering Place for Women.”) The dynamic doctor at the helm, Juliette Faye, performs miracles. This year, Dr. Faye and her staff at Keur Djiguene Yi are likely to have served over 1400 patients by the end of December, a 10% increase over 2022. Almost 70% of these patients come for prenatal care, but the clinic offers a full range of women’s health services, from family planning to infertility treatments. There is a pediatrician who sees children on Saturday mornings. Dr. Faye and her staff remain available 24/7, and often help their patients—many of whom come from low-income backgrounds—with rides to the hospital and job searches. Thanks to your support, all this care is provided at no cost to patients.
You make it all possible.
