When illness or injury occurs, families living in poverty often have nowhere to turn. Children have to stay home from school and parents are forced to miss work.
These problems could be solved by a simple trip to a doctor, but for many people that is not an option. The nearest medical facilities can be miles away, and most families can’t afford treatment, anyway. Because of this, the smallest wound can become something fatal.
A clinic in an impoverished community means sick children can go back to school, pregnant women can have safe deliveries, and little cuts and bruises don’t turn into life-threatening issues. A clinic gives a whole village a healthier future.
Many communities around the world need access to a medical care. You can be the one to help provide it.
