We all take our medical health facilities for granted. Others are not so lucky. Even the most basic medical care is beyond the reach of many of the world's poor. Orphans in Need wants to improve medical camps in rural areas where people have little or no access to any form of healthcare. With your help through donations, we can provide this vital service, saving lives and bringing comfort to the sick. Our services include minor surgery, diagnosis of common ailments, immunisation programmes and dispensation of essential medicines.
The medical camps are supported by mobile clinics to give us access to isolated communities. As well as essential healthcare, we also teach people about good hygiene and the causes of common diseases. Combined with food and nutrition training and water and sanitation projects, our camps make sure that all the essentials are brought together to improve overall health and reduce malnutrition.
We also want to educate communities on the links between safe water, sanitation, diseases and unsafe hygiene practices.
If a patient needs more specialised treatment, or in cases of acute illness, we often release funds that go towards their treatment and other associated areas, as well as transport if needed. But all this costs money - your donation could help to save a valuable young life.
