Bringing Health Information to 228 Villagers

When the My Health, My Family, Our Safety awareness program came to Gazangji’s township, she was hopeful that someone could help her. She had endured poor health for many years because she could not afford to go to the doctors. Ganzangji was never able to go to school because of how poor her family was. She got married at the age of 20 but divorced 5 years later. Her husband left and didn’t want the children. She couldn’t care for them so they are living with her mother.

Gazangji works hard to support her mother and children by working in restaurants and construction sites during autumn and winter, and dig Cordyceps (caterpillar fungus) in summer.

During the My Health, My Family, Our Safety project, Gazangji received a consultation with the doctor. She could hardly express how much the health training and information meant to her. She was grateful for the opportunity to learn about disease prevention and how she can manage her health better. And this is the best part – she is excited to convey what she learned to her family and friends. Projects like this are successful when the participant start conversations about what they have learned.

We wish Gazangji and the other 227 participants (including 72 women) good health. Our special thanks to Jeff O and ASBV Charity for funding the My Health, My Family, Our Safety project in Gazangji’s township.
