Content descriptions

General Note:
"Edited by Valerie Wyatt"--Prelim.
Summary, etc.:
"Mimi's fictional village is like thousands of real villages in the developing world, where health care, especially among infants and children, is poor or uneven. As a result, every day, 21,000 children under the age of five die, most of them from diseases that could have been prevented with basic health care."--Front jacket flap.
"Mimi Malaho and her family help bring basic health care to their community. By making small changes like sleeping under mosquito nets and big ones like building a clinic with outside help, the Malahos and their neighbors transform their Kenyan village from one afraid of illness to a thriving community."--Publisher's website.
