Health initiative needs our support

2010 has been a tough year for the health of villagers in the Niranjana region, particularly with anemia levels on the rise. 

Women being treated at the Niranjana mobile health clinic

The past two year have been very dry with scant rain, furthering the nutritional problems as food prices are increased. Most village people severely lack basic foods needed for good nutrients such as leafy green vegetables, pulses and milk products. These issues come down to the fact that so many people live in each house of which there is usually only one person earning income (on a low wage of less than $50USD/month).

In order to help these women and families receive the nutrition they need, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Unlike the orphanage and school, the health clinic receives no regular funding – so when money is needed it is taken away from other projects funds. This is making it increasingly difficult to sustain the health clinic at its current level, let alone expand it further.

The health clinic has only been open for a few years but already has over 4000 patients on the books and sees about 50 patients per day (with only one doctor and one nurse). And the village health lessons are also hugely successful in educating the villagers about good heath practices. We have just obtained a wireless projector which will bring educational movies to the villagers from 2011. This project is so important but really needs your support to continue.
