Project Description

HEALTHY BODY – HEALTHY MIND

Living and working on the streets brings with it a multitude of health risks; sadly, skin and immune illnesses, infections and injuries are all too common. Each center e regularly hosts a “free mobile clinic“ which provides check-ups, medication and treatment. For those who need hospital treatment, we help by going with them and also paying their bills. We are able to help over 1000 people each year with the mobile clinic.

Our medical emergency fund provides essential help – quickly and without bureaucracy.

Public healthcare in Myanmar is inadequate and the poorest people in society have little or no access to even basic health services. Thousands of children die every year because their parents cannot afford doctors or medical treatment. Many poor families of seriously ill children have been saved from financial ruin by this project because they didn’t have to pay enormous medical bills.

An emergency medical fund without bureaucracy, that is quick and easy to access is literally a life-saver for families who cannot afford operations or prolonged treatment.
