Ranger Community Family Support Project
What happens in the Rangers home village? A ranger is on the front lines, yet his family must still continue to plant and harvest. Their wives looking after the sometimes extended family, with babies been born, suffering illness, and the list goes. ICORP has personally dealt with injured rangers and on occasions a Ranger hero that has been lost in combat, so has made this a top priority project. ICORP is assisting the ranger’s families with birthing kits, medical supplies, and mosquito nets, to provide them with essential equipment to live comfortably and safely in the sometimes harsh environment, a variety of wild animals and the elements. There is always a diverse range of work needed in rural areas; ensuring families and their livestock are protected from wildlife, as well as the right of women to give birth in a safe and clean environment. However, without basic medical supplies child birth is fraught with complications and high maternal/infant mortality rates, minor injuries can become life threatening if not treated with something as simple as a band aid.
ICORP is asking for funding to procure the much needed supplies such as; clamps for umbilical cord, small surgical scissors, antiseptic wipes, gauze, towels, blankets, new born diapers, cotton menstrual pads, thermometers, band aids, sterile babies bottles and more. We are also supplying families with vegetable seeds to help families move towards self-sufficiency while providing educational opportunities for living sustainably. However each kit costs money therefore funding is crucial: Birthing Kit – $45 Well equipped Medical kit – $60 Bag of vegetable seeds – $15 Treated Mosquito nets – $20. It is crucial the Rangers and their families have this support. Rangers are on the front line, putting their lives at risk, protecting these animals night and day, making it difficult for them to provide for their families. This project will supply essentials to enable the Rangers’ vital contribution to wildlife conservation. These communities are vital in keeping poaching gangs who come and prey on these people who live in poverty out. ICORP is involved with sustainable and environmental education, hereby teaching these communities to expand their economy in many ways, from food gardens, to Tourism. Funding is needed to to implement a water reticulation system using solar, instead of a fuel guzzling generator, so funds can be better used on the actual community and Ranger family needs.
