Global Flight Relief and HEAL Africa: Delivering Hope for Victims of Gender-Based Violence

The families were determined to arrive on time, because they knew that this could be their children's only chance to live normal, productive lives. Their children were afflicted with scoliosis. And in an economy driven by physical labor, whether as a worker on a banana farm or in the service industry, children with untreated spine curvature would have limited mobility, diminished chances for future employment, and possibly face ridicule and social ostracism...
