Medical care for the poorest
Because many villagers are unable to travel to the city, a general practitioner comes to our ELIJAH practice in Casa Nova. He visits seriously ill people at home. His small pharmacy supplies everyone with medication. Those who cannot afford it get the medicine for free. The donated dressing material is often urgently needed.
 
The first time at the dentist
Since September 2017, a dentist has also been treating patients, many for the first time in their lives. He explains why and how to brush teeth. Many teeth had to be extracted. In our social centres every child has a toothbrush, and teeth are brushed twice a day. At home it is often not possible because most families do not have a water connection.
