Our team of volunteers in India are working in the villages of Gujarat to help people that have not enough income to eat a healthy diet and who lack medical care.
On a regular basis the team provides meals in villages and supplies supplements to people to meet the most basic needs of the poor. Often this is combined with education in the values of the ancient culture that is so rich in India.
Children say that their parents have forgotten how to teach this to them, and want to hear the old stories that contain the lessons for a happy life.
Even though the medical standards in India can compete with the west, it is often even impossible for villagers to pay for the journey to see a doctor or visit a hospital. Our team is organizing regular medical camps to provide basic medical treatment for everyone.
They can count on a large number of qualified doctors who attend to the needs of the villagers free of charge. Medicines are made available on doctors' prescription and eventual further treatment in a hospital is sponsored.
As a preparation for a medical camp our team visits all families in the surrounding villages to investigate the needs. People that are ill are invited to come to the camp. Eventually transport is organized and provided to enable people to come.
