All Saints Rural Health Services

In parts of Nigeria, where diseases are seen as a result of witchcraft and disabilities are believed to be due to sins committed by the person or their parents, All Saints Rural Health Services (ASRHS) has been providing basic health services and education to those in need since 2009.
