Our Heal the Sick medical team provides medical aid for those most in need.
Currently, we have three medical clinics. One in Phnom Penh, Cambodia; one on the rural outskirts of Phnom Penh and another in Tripoli, Lebanon. The aim of which is to improve accessibility to health care so that even the most disadvantaged can afford health care.
The Centre's operate on a 'partly' to 'fully' subsided basis, depending on the needs of the patient. More to the point, patients are assessed on their ability to pay and with your generous contributions, our doctors provide medical care and attention to those that would not ordinarily be able to afford such treatment.
We also operate multiple medical treatment campaigns, where we have Australian practitioners on circuit treating patients throughout the rural parts of Cambodia.
In the last 12 months, we have been able to provide access to health care to approximately 3000 patients. The result being the distribution of 4890 different medications and the operation of 74 minor surgical procedures to those who could never afford to visit a doctor.
Another goal of ours is to bridge the gap between rural and metropolitan health care. This has been achieved by establishing a referral system that links both health services together to help enhance accessibility to all patients. By creating this link we are able to spread awareness on the existence of these services to an array of people and also encourage patients to keep track of their health status.
With your continued support, our highly qualified medical professionals will be able to continue to provide adequate health services now and for future generations. Such measures supports our community development approach by not only improving health but also improving standards of living.
