Thank you for coming to my village

Over 100 villagers attended the Healthy Village program held in their village last week. All who attended learned about various diseases and ways to prevent health concerns.  Over 96 women received health checks and medicines. For many of these 96 women, this was their first medical check. Kamogal was one of the women who attended.

Kamogal talks with Carrie [project manager] about her life and what this project has meant to her.

Kamogal, 48 years old and a single mother to her 19 year old son. She has never been to school and neither has her son. They have been struggling to make a life and farming has been the only source of income for them. She has been sick for long time and has only been able to visit a doctor once for some treatment because they can’t afford the medical costs. “I have been very sick but could not buy medicine because a month’s worth of medicine costs over RMB 320 [US$46] monthly and I can not afford that.” Kamogal learned some tips and health practices to implement in her daily life that will improve her health. “Thank you so much for coming to my village. I am confident that my health will start to improve because of the things that I have learned.”

Thank you to ASB Ventures and those who donated at the 10th Annual Captivating Charity Auction in Shenzhen for supporting the Healthy Village Project.
