About Micealah Ford:

I am a health and social activist working towards the end of poverty and inequality within under privileged communities. I achieve this by promoting socio-economic rights and educating those who require the knowledge while focusing on strengthening community and the structures in which I find myself. At the heart of my hard work is the need to empower and equip women and children and the most vulnerable.
