• Yiben’s awesome leaders

    Chief Bangalie and his wife Serah, were the power behind the community’s efforts to bring their national health services to themselves. Speaking at the opening celebrations for the Health Clinic, Serah voiced their frustrated efforts to be included in national programs, even in bednet distribution and parasite control, because of their isolation. She spoke of becoming pregnant and giving birth: “We know we will live or die.”

    Both leaders expressed the gratitude of the community to Mallam and SET4LIFE Australia for helping them become recognised for services by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation.
