Karing for Kids runs a clinic in the rural mountain communities of Gatlang, Goljung and Chilime, Nepal. The clinic provides health care, health education, and serves as a community library.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
There are nearly 7000 people living in the remote villages served by this clinic. Prior to KFK’s Clinic it was difficult to find a mother who had not lost a child and impossible to find a household without a sick person. Child and Maternal Mortality rates of these communities have been almost two-to-three times higher than the national average.
How will this project solve this problem?
•Management of childhood illnesses such as diarrhea, worm infestation, malnutrition, and respiratory infections •Immunizations •Antenatal/post natal care • Family planning and counseling •Treatment of sexually transmitted diseases and tuberculosis
Potential Long Term Impact
Our long term plan as a result of the Healthcare for all Nepal outreach program is to establish four more clinics in strategic locations in the greater Langtang area and provide accessible healthcare to nearly 30 villages.
