The vast majority of the world does not have access to adequate health care as we understand it in the Western world. In addition, much of the world suffers from illnesses and diseases that have been eradicated or greatly reduced in the West such as intestinal worms, malaria, infections, typhoid and others. We intentionally look to provide healthcare services in remote areas or to refugee populations where there’s limited to no access to such care. WCF also saw a need and provided health education and training to local healthcare workers and community leaders with particular emphasis on these impoverished areas.
Patients who come to our clinics will have their vital signs, blood glucose levels, height and weight measured and be tested for HIV and malaria. They will then have a consultation with a medical practitioner (nurse, doctor, or physician assistant) who will prescribe the appropriate medications and treatment. Every patient is given multivitamins and reading glasses are distributed as needed. We provide treatment for malaria, ringworm, cardiovascular, hypertension, diabetes, gastrointestinal, infections, wounds, musculoskeletal pain and other health problems.
WCF will sponsor the cost of medical supplies and clinic costs for a volunteer medical team to conduct medical clinics in several locations in northern India.
Medical and Dental Supplies and clinic costs for weeklong clinics in remote village areas in Uganda.
