Health checks, medicine and health training help 140 women

The Captivating Healthy Village program has come to another remote, nomadic region in the highlands of Western China. 140 women and 60 men participated in the two day program which was divided up into 3 parts.

  1. Training was conducted by the doctor. This included information on various STDs, Pre and Post Natal Health, Women’s Health and healthy habits to keep their children safe and healthy. Many of the nomadic families had not heard of these diseases or ways to prevent them. They were eager to learn ways to improve their health and the health of their families.
  2. Each participant received a personal consultation with the doctor. For many women this was their first doctor consultation with many conveying they had been suffering from women’s health issues for many years. There were some women who had serious health concerns so arrangements were made for further visits with the doctor.
  3. Medicine and hygiene supplies were handed out to each participant. These were eagerly received with grateful hearts.

One of the women who participated in the program was a 41 year old single mother with three children. This woman was illiterate, had never been to school and spent her days taking care of her sick mother. She has spent her years taking care of her three children and her mother and had not paid attention to her health. She had never been to a doctor before. The Captivating Healthy Village program provided this woman with her very first medical checkup. During this checkup with the doctor, it was discovered that she has serious liver problems. She was provided with three months supply of medicine and specific information regarding liver health care.

This is one of ten (10) Healthy Village Township programs supported by Captivating and implemented by our amazing Qinghai registered charity partner – Shamtse Charity.

For My Parents

My name is Lhamotso and I am 22 years old. I have had very little education and so I have never had a job where I can earn a good income. My family rely on our livestock to survive but last winter was really heavy snow and five of our cattle were trapped. We couldn’t do anything about it. This devastated my family.
