Mimi’s Village and How Basic Health Care Transformed It by Katie Smith Milway

Image:

Mimi Malaho is familiar with illness and death in her Western Kenyan village. But when Mimi’s sister, Nakkissi, becomes ill from contaminated water, Mimi experiences the necessity of health care. Nakkissi is effectively treated at a clinic in a neighboring village. When Mimi returns to her own village, she asks her father if he will build a clinic for their village. Mimi’s “big dream” becomes a reality. Her village is transformed as mosquito nets that stop the spread of malaria are introduced, maternal healthcare is promoted, nutrition is emphasized, and medical supplies become available. This vibrantly illustrated children’s picture book, based on an amalgamation of true stories, includes excellent author’s notes. (Kids Can Press)
