We will be able to improve health and well-being for people with myriad conditions such as diabetes, cancers, kidney failure, etc. Having a research officer enables us to showcase our work in research and better support to people in humanitarian emergencies facing wars, diseases and starvation such as in South Sudan, Cameroon, Nigeria and Central African Republic and people will be able to donate to the charity. We will be able to improve the welfare of the people in emergency situation. We will also be able to prevent maternal deaths and infant mortality which are high in Africa due to shortage of research information and data. In UK, the impact will be providing information and help improving the lives of refugees and deprived communities such as BAME communities
