The core problems of BCDO have been addressing mainly extreme poverty and in adequate health service delivery.
The number of people living below poverty line is high as well as poor access to clean and safe water and appropriate sanitation facilities both at house hold and community level including educational institutions.
This is due to; lack of enough funds in Government Budget allocations, laxity in implementing public health laws and sensitization of communities.
BCDO is therefore targeting rural poor people, households at risk, and communities with unsafe water sources poor sanitation facilities, areas with high incidences of preventable diseases and HIV/ AIDS, high nutrition deficiencies. As the organization tries to fulfill its obligation it will remain focused to those stated target areas and set objectives.
