Annual Medical Camp
In March 2010 saw the first medical checkup for all children from school. The results surprised us: 92% of children were malnourished, 84% parasites in the stomach or intestines and respiratory illnesses by 67%.
With these figures it is not surprising that India is the first country in the world with the highest rate of child mortality under age 5. Amavida was also responsible for the purchase of all medications prescribed for each child after your query by delivering the same a week after the exam.
In India many people die each year from diseases that could have been avoided with a check-in time. Amavida also supports healthcare during the year to all school children and their families.
Cancer case: Through the slum community of women Jhor Basti, we found one case of cancer could be completely curable because of the state it was in when buying the right medicines . The woman patient came to our workshops in painting, and despair in his eyes made us realize the situation. Three daughters to support, with the weight of having a child in India. If the husband dies, the situation of women with the 3 girls would be unsustainable.
The price of drugs was impossible for a family without means. Amavida has taken all the necessary medicines required by the patient for his life and his family.
