How destitute people get lack of healthcare

In order to help people in the remote and poor areas is what Serve Cambodia have tried our best and seek for many ways to assist people both children and adults in the health sector and other as well as giving education. Most Cambodians who are living in slum or dump areas and remote villages are getting hard to learn about healthcare education. Understanding of prevention often can be hard for them to take time to learn beside spending their whole daily life for picking up rubbishes, etc. to earn a tiny income.

Recently, the Medical Outreach project of Serve Cambodia has collaborated with Medical Mission Direct to provide a short clinic service in purpose to see they have a better health. Moreover, we do the short training during clinic service as relevant hypertension, diabetes, skin care, acknowledge taking medication correctly. Surely, they will be hardly alleviated if they don’t understand the prevention. We examined their blood pressure, blood sugar and advise them to take bath properly, regularly and hygiene living which could help them to evade any diseases.

Furthermore, for the people in Bakou village (it is called dump area because it is located at a rubbish dump) are getting many skin infections and allergies.  Likewise, they are working daily in the whole day with rubbishes for their livelihood so most of them get a skin infection, dry skin, rash, itching, and allergy. Despite their toil, they do not even have sufficient time or money for their health or medication. We cleaned and put some cream or gave some basic medications and bandage the wound for the children as well. Another key thing to remember is that the people do not have time for exercise outside of their work all day which effects to their muscle and causes physical problems such as get pain or hard to move for some parts of their bodies. Consequently, we taught them some physical exercise instructions which is a helpful and short time in just 5 minutes so they can do every day.

As we had a short time for each place we spent half a day for the community around TLC centre, half a day for the community around HOH centre plus one full day for Bakou village. There are 49 children and 37 adults got this medical checkup during that time.

Above all, we are so exhilarated to give this service to such needy people and get to know their situation. We believe that we still can further opportunities to help these people in further cooperation. Thank you so much to Mission Direct for their help, and also to the other people who donate money for Serve Cambodia’s medical outreach work in our community. Without your help we would be unable to do these things.
