Parents as Stewards of Good Health

Tserang grew up in a poor family. Her parents did not receive any education themselves and so they gave little importance to sending their children to school. Tserang and her sister would instead help their parents with housework and farming.

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.

“I have not been very well since I was young. My condition worsened after I gave birth to our first child. When I experience back and abdominal pains, I usually just warm myself by the fire or take painkillers if I find any at home.”

“When our village secretary informed us that you were visiting to conduct health education, I was very happy. The doctors conducted lectures on basic health care, prevention of infectious diseases, and gynecological diseases for women. I felt a little embarrassed but I know that everything we’ve learned is for our own good. We are so busy raising our children that we often neglect our own health. Thank you for making us realize that as parents, we should take good care of our bodies for us to be able to care for our families better. I will share this knowledge to my children and encourage them to take care of their health as they grow into adults.

Thanks to the donors and staff who made this project happen. It is your kindness that gives us women the opportunity to learn health knowledge. Thank you very much!”

In this village stop, we were able to attend to and give away free medicine to 226 people and medical checks to 165 women. Thank you to Yingji for sponsoring this village program.
