In this newest addition to the CitizenKid collection of inspiring stories from around the globe, Mimi Malaho and her family help bring basic health care to their community. By making small changes like sleeping under mosquito nets and big ones like building a clinic with outside help, the Malahos and their neighbors transform their Kenyan village from one afraid of illness to a thriving community.
"A great resource for introducing children to the issues surrounding global health and empowering them to get involved." -- Ophelia Dahl, Executive Director, Partners In Health
"This book is part of a series that intends to educate and inspire youngsters to help other children around the world. Milway explains in simple language the dangers that millions of children face without access to fundamental health care such as vaccinations, basic medicine, proper pre- and postnatal care, and clean drinking water... This topic is a heavy one, but the book ends with several pages of practical, child-friendly suggestions about how readers can help others who lack these fundamental resources." -- Lisa Crandall, School Library Journal
