Instilling Health Awareness in Remote Places

Over 10 villages were part of the 2019/2020 My Health, My Family, Our Safety project. 289 villagers attended the program at one of the project stops. Everyone who was part of the program, was given free medicine and other health and hygiene products. They also learned about gynecological diseases and basic healthcare knowledge.The learning doesn’t stop with those who attended but talked about further at home, impacting even more people.

“My two children are in high school and are both doing excellently in their studies. I feel proud and happy seeing that they no only cherish their education, but also make time to help me with household work. I want my family to have a better life so I save up as much as I can. I am reluctant to spend for hospitalization, even if I am seriously ill. My back usually aches but I just bear it, thinking that it is nothing serious. I have never considered taking care of my health as a priority.”

“Fortunately, there are people like you who provide health education programs to remote and isolated villages like ours.”

“Because of the information in this program, we are able to understand our own health conditions and get treated with the appropriate medicine. Despite the cold the weather, the staff and the doctors served all of us well. Thank you very much! We hope that you can visit this area again, spread health knowledge, and instill health awareness in this remote place.”

Thank you to Jason and Holiday and ASBV Charity for funding the My Health, My Family, Our Safety project in this village.

Dari's Beautiful Creations

Dari grew up in difficult living conditions - being raised alone by her mother, and having to drop out of school in third grade to take care of her mother after falling seriously ill. Now with her own family, Dari still faces life's hurdles. Their family depends primarily on her husband's income for herding sheep and cattle. Meanwhile, Dari stays mostly at home to take care of her elderly in-laws and her child.

Caring for the Elderly

"I'm grateful that your team came to our village to conduct health education programs and give away health products for free. Many of the families in my village don't understand how to take care of their health. I have children and grandchildren and I will share with them what I learned from the doctors and nurses during this program. Thank you for organizing such an activity."

Parents as Stewards of Good Health

Now that she has a family of her own, both Tserang and her husband work hard to send their kids to school. From digging up caterpillar fungus to sell, to working in construction sites, regardless of the weather, they would stay out working all day. This causes Tserang to experience back pain frequently. But because of their unstable income, she wouldn't dare spend money to go to the hospital and have a health checkup.

"Certain illnesses such as gynecological diseases become serious over time if not attended to. Everyone knows this but most of the time, we would rather deceive ourselves and disregard the pain rather than face the reality that we cannot afford to pay for medical services even if we badly need it," shares Tserangtso.
