Project Description

From Flying Doctors to a Health Organization

Amref Health Africa (African Medical & Research Foundation) was founded 1957 and is an independent, non-profit, African NGO.
With headquarters in Nairobi, Kenya, Amref Health Africa is the largest Africa-based healthcare nonprofit, serving an average of nine million people per year across 35 countries in sub-Saharan Africa. The NGO strengthens health systems and trains African health workers to respond to the continent’s most critical health challenges:

  • maternal and child health,
  • non-communicable and infectious disease (Cancer, Diabetes, HIV/AIDS, TB, malaria, etc),
  • access to clean water and sanitation,
  • surgical and clinical outreach.

Amref’s approach is community-based and makes the people they reach partners, rather than just beneficiaries. Over 97% of their global staff are Africans, so they are always tackling African challenges with African expertise.

Dinese Hannewald has donated over 10,000 Euro to AMREF since 2015. She is also a Board Member of AMREF Health Africa /Flying Doctors e.V. since 2014.


Are you working on a similar or complementary project?

Access to “Clean Water and Sanitation” is a very important SDG for Grace Impact. We specifically seek collaborations with companies or initiatives that focus on scalable clean water and sanitation solutions, especially on solutions that can be easily duplicated in many countries and markets. Technology is not the top priority for Grace Impact, but rather how to distribute and connect to people in rural areas who lack access to clean water and proper sanitation. We would like to cooperate with you and/or invest in or lend to your company. Please write to Dinese or call:

Do you have jobs or job training opportunities for refugees or migrants?
