Primary Health Centre
As the crisis deepened, and with the continuing destruction of health care infrastructure, we recognised the escalating need for providing primary health care services to displaced populations, as well as to their host communities. Primary health care services are specifically high in demand in areas were healthcare facilities have been rapidly degraded or destroyed by the conflict.
We run five Primary Health Centres (PHCs) which are, in effect, large GP Surgeries providing medical care for chronic conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and respiratory illnesses, as well as treating common acute minor illnesses. Our PHCs also offer public health services such as vaccinations and health education. Each PHC has a Nutrition Clinic, offering food supplements and advice to those suffering from malnutrition. In total, these Centres treat around 16,000 patients a month, completely free of charge.
We also run a number of mobile primary health care clinics that can reach remote areas where some displaced communities have settled, offering essential medical care, vaccination, health education and advice.
We provide healthcare, sponsor schools, support
orphans, provide water, food and tents, and more.
