How the Medical Caravan in Budila went

August 4 2014

This weekend we were in Budila, along with our partners from Împreună pentru Sănătatea Rurală.  During the two days of medical caravan, 198 in total were examined- 119 adults and 79 children.  Most of them had never seen a doctor before…

The majority of the children’s problems are caused by poor nutrition (rich in carbohydrates, inappropriate food) and poor hygiene. In many of these cases intestinal parasites and phimosis were identified. There were more serious cases, so parents were advised to hospitalise the children for further investigations. Since the health component is supported by GlaxoSmithKline we will be able to help the parents do it.

We are very grateful to our Fiecare Copil in Gradinita partners Raiffeisen, Carrefour and the UK Embassy in Bucharest and our local partners from the City Hall, especially to Irimia Marșavela, the Mayor and Simona Cristea, FCG program coordination for hosting us.

Thanks to the event sponsors La Fantana, who offered us fresh water and Eurolines, who helped us with the transportation, everything went great. Special thanks to Carmen and Radu Mihaiu, our dear friends.
