Medical aid in no man’s land with free clinics
From Yeleswaram, the location of our school at the stone quarries, to the north stretches a huge forest area called Alluri Sitaramaraju. The trees cover an area of about 100 kilometres long and 150 kilometres wide. The stretch of land is crossed only by mogul slopes and just a few people live in the small settlements.
Their number is small for Indian standards, as in spite of the remoteness, many thousand residents live here, almost completely cut off from the outside world, as only a tiny number have a car. Public facilities, such as secondary schools or training institutions are missing, as are doctors, not to mention a hospital.
Some years ago, we set up a so-called Free Clinic in this remote area – a place to go for people with a wide range of illnesses, who cannot afford expensive treatment or the journey to a neighbouring town to see a doctor. The medical staff at the Free Clinic examines the sick, prescribes medication or gives advice as to how they can help themselves with simple remedies in case of less serious complaints.
To enable us to do this work we would like to ask for your support.
Only EUR 5 are enough to pay for the examination of a patient or the prescription of free medication for his or her treatment.
