Travelling Places to Provide Health Services

My Health, My Family, Our Safety Awareness Program traveled through Western China with a team of medical professionals. We were able to visit 11 villages and cater to the health needs of over 3,000 men and women. Medical check-ups, medicines, and hygiene products were given to the participants along with important information on how to stay healthy and remain safe from sexually transmitted diseases and other easily transmitted illnesses.

The attending doctor confirmed that 95% of the 1,929 women who received medical examinations, suffered from gynecological health issues. The doctor believed that much of this could be prevented with knowledge of good hygiene practices and making the health of women in their communities a higher priority.

One of the nurses who was part of this program shared her thoughts and experiences with us.

“This is my first time to go to rural areas to do such a meaningful activity. I was with the team for over 20 days and our schedule was very intensive. There were so many difficulties we had to overcome like sudden changes in weather, road conditions, and even the people, but none of us ever drew back. I am so lucky to have experienced all this. 

I also saw the importance of conducting health training in the rural areas. Most of those living in the rural areas are not well informed on good health practices. I also noticed that some of them were very excited to receive the medical supplies we gave away rather than the actual training. But I am impressed with how patient our doctors are in teaching them and organizing everyone.

Thank you so much for this opportunity not only for my learning but for the benefit of rural communities. I am so happy to be of assistance to the doctors in the program.”
