Prioritizing Health

Most of the rural villages visited by the My Health, My Family, Our Safety Program share a common story – majority of the villagers endure sickness and don’t prioritize their health. This is true in one of our project stops where a total of 255 people were attended to.

One of them is Dorje. She is 44 years old, married and has two children. Her family relies mainly on farming but income is unstable.

“When we get sick, we just ignore it because we do not want to add any more financial pressure to the family. Many poor women in our hometown would only visit the hospital when they are seriously ill. Otherwise, they would just endure it. We are afraid that when we find out about our health condition, we would need hospitalization or long-term treatment which would only add burden to our poor families.”

“It’s a great honor to receive help from good people. I am really grateful. We received medicines and important information about gynecological diseases which is very common among us. The doctors gave us advice and precautionary measures on how to avoid such conditions and other infectious diseases. Health is important for everyone. We don’t need to be rich, as long as the family is healthy, we will be very happy. Thank you again.”

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

CHINA | MY FIRST JOB PROGRAM

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.
