Helping the underprivileged
Health Care Program HECAP
Together we can change the world
Medical Care Access
Anyone in Need.
Medical aid, which can often be combined with food aid, is intended for the most marginalized, economically deprived families to support them in their treatment of critical medical needs. These families usually do not have a huge amount of money to spend.
Our aim is to sponsor medical treatments of the underprivileged and help them to get back to their normal lives. And sending away patients who have no money, for example with severe malaria who could have saved with only a few euros, will certainly not be part of our goal.
LS: Because of the prejudice and stigma surrounding HIV/AIDS, we keep the identities of these patients a secret.
Efficient. Effective. Transparent.
Healthy People. Better World.
The Children. Our Future
Child Medical Care is a field of public health concern with reducing child mortality. Child survival interventions are designed to address the most common causes of child deaths that occur, like diarrhea, malaria and neonatal conditions.
Health Care Program HECAP is devoted to child survival interventions as a way of reducing the child mortality. Every year too much children under age five die, mostly from preventable and treatable diseases.
Many families come from weaker sections who need nutritional support. Especially their children who are admitted in local hospitals or community clinics and whose parents cannot afford food and find it very difficult to take care of their children.
Health Care Program HECAP supports these underprivileged children by providing them nutritional kits.
It is often also directly related to people’s well-being: Healthy food reduces diseases. And reducing diseases relieve the demand or the pressure on the medical care system that is already hardly functioning.
In most situations our social worker is also involved.
Health Awareness Program
If the situation requires it, Health Care Program HECAP organizes awareness programs on health and personal hygiene for the community and for underprivileged children for spreading awareness in the schools and villages on various health issues.
Stimulating health awareness or prevention programs also benefits the medical sector. After all, it always has a positive effect on the reduction of the number of patients who would otherwise be hospitalized.
Critical Surgery Support
The difference between life and death in Africa can only mean a few dollars. However, expensive medical treatments are also required.
In the latter case and as long as our own hospital is not there, we work together with renowned hospitals in The Gambia, mostly private clinics. While a critical surgery is completely sponsored, it is not our final objective, but we want to receive medical cases from various critical major surgeries asap.
The Xippia Project provides financial support for the patients who cannot afford any critical operations, urgent need for critical illness, or any other expensive medical support.
Giving Is A Very Good Medicine, but ......
Building or modernizing hospitals are of no use, unless we assure that these facilities and equipment are accessible to people from all walks of life. We must ensure that every individual is getting proper care, medicines, diagnosis and attention at times of dire need.
Humanity is the highest form of intelligence gifted to mankind. We must utilize this gift to its fullest in the servitude of the poor, the needy and the destitute.
Your donation is more than money. It gives hope that every individual can live in good health and with dignity.
