MEDRIX

MEDRIX works to save lives and improve the quality of life of disadvantaged people in Vietnam by providing Medical, Educational and Development Resources through International eXchange. In 2000, MEDRIX became an official non-profit organization in Washington State and in 2002 MEDRIX received official Non-Government Organization licensure to operate in Vietnam. Prior to this, co-founder and Executive Director LaRelle Catherman was invited to conduct research alongside Vietnamese physicians on home treatment for diarrhea in Hue, Vietnam.

Children's heart disease is the most common birth defect globally, and 90% of children born in developing countries have limited access to the care they need to lead normal, healthy lives. Labored breathing and lack of energy keep these children from attending school and just being kids. MEDRIX bridges this disconnect by sponsoring life-changing heart surgeries in Vietnam and supporting families awaiting surgery at Hue Central Hospital by providing food, transportation, and lodging. project reportread updates from the field

Many children in Vietnam lack access to water that is safe for both drinking and handwashing. Water that looks clean may still have bacteria that is invisible to the human eye that makes it unsafe for drinking, and causes illness and disease. Hygiene education in schools is also lacking and diseases such as diarrhea are common. MEDRIX creates a healthy future for Vietnamese kids by installing water filtration systems for drinking water and handwashing stations in preschools and primary schools. project reportread updates from the field

Autism spectrum disorder has exploded all over the world, while research and therapeutic techniques have not caught up to fully serve children facing learning challenges. MEDRIX is partnered with the National Pediatric Hospital in Vietnam to collaborate on diagnosis and treatment options for children who often already suffer from poverty and lack regular access to therapists. This collaboration will open doors for autism awareness, diagnosis and treatment in local and regional clinics. project reportread updates from the field
