Health Training Is Saving Lives

Lhamo attended the Captivating Healthy Village Program in 2014. She is a mother of three children and told our project manager how this program saved her life. “It was very shocking when I heard of HIV and other diseases. I never heard such diseases that can take lives gradually. I was given a medical check by the doctor last year and she encouraged me to go to the local hospital for further check. So I did and had to have a little operation after that. I was so lucky to be checked otherwise I would never go to the hospital until I got really sick and by that time my life would be in danger as I was told by the doctors from the local hospital.”

Chitso is another lady who participated in the Healthy Village education program in 2014, “It was very helpful that we have learnt the fatalness of various diseases and we actually never knew that many health problems could be prevented if we take care of ourselves through very small and inexpensive actions in daily life. I have always washed my underwear with socks and now I wash them separately and leave them in hot water for few minutes. Thank you for telling us about all these things.”

As our project manager talks with villagers a year later, stories very similar are repeated over and over. We are thrilled this program has impacted so many lives in such a positive way. Programs like this are very important and we are glad we had the opportunity to run the Healthy Village Program again in 2015 to spread this health education to other areas. We intend to run this program each year but we need your help to do this. If you would like to partner with Captivating to bring lasting change to families in remote, rural locations contact andrewc@captivating.org.
