Community Health Program
We believe that everyone has the right to receive health care.
For the communities we serve, health care is often a luxury that they cannot afford. Many families self-diagnose themselves and in some cases even share each other’s medicines without consulting a doctor first.
Our clinic delivers holistic high quality, patient-centered health care for uninsured and low income families once a week, however since lock down, we have decided to open the clinic five days a week to extend our services to include a strong advocacy program which helps the community learn about how to stay healthy and caring for their mental health.
Our Clinic trains community volunteer health workers in basic first aid and health care so that they can care for their neighbors. Volunteer doctors, nurses and dentists generously donate their time to deliver vital services for the community, ensuring that funds are spent for diagnostic procedures, laboratory test and medicines.
The reproductive clinics remain closed and those who are open are not admitting new clients, this has resulted in a baby boom in our areas. In response we were able to hire a midwife who has runs a pre and post natal clinic serving both pregnant and new mothers, as well advocacy programs for teenagers.
