Sometimes there are situations when medical care is desperately needed. In those cases, we will take the patient to the hospital or advise them to seek medical help. For a lot of patients it is impossible to pay the 2 or 3 euros to see a doctor themselves. The costs for medication and transport also are too high for many patients.
We will help with this, but also hold the family partly responsible to help (depending on the situation, of course). If patients are admitted to the hospital, we will visit them there and see what we can do. We will also partially pay the hospital bill.
Sometimes there are exceptional situations where specialist care is required. We will look at the options and whether we can take care of health insurance from the government for the patient to use.
In addition to AIDS, many patients also have other medical problems, such as cancer, TB, cerebral infarction, malnutrition, etc. We adapt our help and advice to this.
For €12,50 we can provide 1 patient with medical care for a month.
