Water Well at Jean Paull II Hospital Completed

In March 2010, AFG finished installing a water well at Jean Paul II Hospital in Conakry and held a ceremony to commemorate the event. Safe drinking water is extremely important to good health. Many Guineans have no choice but to drink bacteria-contaminated water, which causes waterborne diseases such as cholera. In 2007, the country experienced a massive cholera outbreak. The fresh water well is a step toward combating the disease. Many leaders of the hospital and the minister of Guinea’s Department of Health and Social Services participated in the ceremony.

  • AFG needs your help! We depend on contributions from foundations, companies and individuals to continue our work in Guinea.

    Our primary goal is to assist hospitals and health centers in Guinea who care for the welfare of the Guinean population. We do this by providing medical aid, improving and upgrading existing infrastructure in health facilities and implementing disease prevention and treatment programs.

    We also aim to improve the overall quality of life of the population by supporting and promoting economic growth and technical development.
