EVERYBODY DESERVES HEALTHCARE
Mobile healthcare of vulnerable children and their relatives in Yangon
In most regions in Myanmar there is no access to healthcare institutions, and general awareness about healthcare is also poor. A lot of sicknesses could be prevented or at least faster cured through preventative and regular healthcare measures. Therefore, within the context of the project at hand, a weekly healthcare camp at three different project locations – our three SONNE day-care-centres – will take place.
Increase knowledge and awareness for healthcare
The superior goal is to contribute to an improved health of the target group – primary the children of our daycare centres but their families and neighbours as well – and to increase general knowledge, as well as make people more aware of their health consciousness. To make this possible, the SONNE medical team (consisting of two nurses, one doctor and one healthcare-supervisor) will come over for a full day. Thereby the number of sicknesses should be reduced, which again will have positive effects on school success and will rise chances for a better life. Through a generally improved health, the “drop-out-rate” of children in public schools may also be reduced, for the simple reason that only healthy kids learn well.
