The area is urban, and it has multiple public schools available for children.

Health Resources

The area does not have any hospitals, but some are situated near it. It is clear that it is a problem for people as they do not have any community health centers in the walking distance from their homes. People have to drive or take public transportation to arrive at hospitals and other medical establishments.

The writer did not follow my choice of topic (Food/Water Insecurity, Hunger, & Poverty), the paper was instead written about Climate Change in Africa. However, the paper was still great and informative. Thank you!
