PROJECT IN THREE CONTINENTS
Magna Children at risk provides medical and social aid to people in need in three continents, in 8 countries. Every year beside reacting on humanitarian disasters and rendering primary medical care, we open long-term projects aimed at helping the people to whom their own community or non-functioning government cannot provide adequate medical care. The projects are focused on treatment and care about people afflicted by diseases such as HIV/AIDS, acute malnutrition, tuberculosis, cholera, malaria and other.
