The Africa Health Project - In July 2004, Lassine Doumbia founded the Sibiry Doumbia Memorial Health Center for the village of Koungodjan in Mali, West Africa in honor of his father who died in 2004 at the age of 90. The senior Doumbia died of complications from a broken hip. Medicines were purchased in Bamako, yet it was five days before a medical technician could visit the village to administer the medication. Mr. Doumbia died prior to the doctor’s arrival. With the belief that all men, women and children should have ready access to medical care in their community, the Center was born.

Our Vision - Access for all men, women and children to quality health information, medical care and basic hospital services in the community of Koungodjan, Mali and surrounding villages.
