By Tsering Yanzo - Director of Lamp of the Path (NGO)
The Lamp of the Path NGO in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia has been servicing the community since 2003 and formally registered as an NGO in 2005. The services offered here are: a free Health Clinic, Children's Development Program and a Soup Kitchen, known to the Global Giving Community as 'Feed 80 Homeless People in Ulaanbataar'. This Soup Kitchen was one of the first of its kind in Mongolia providing a warm refuge, especially during our freezing winters by serving beneficiaries five days a week. In the first three months of 2013, we have offered 2690 hot nourishing meals. Many of our beneficiaries come from quite a distance for their one good meal of the day and some request to take a meal to individuals who could not make the trip. The free Health Clinic attached to the Soup Kitchen, has seen over 600 patients in the last three months. Most of the patients seen are the beneficiaries of the Soup Kitchen. Our in-house doctor and nurse very pro-actively engage in looking after their health, as there are many of them who have long given up on the thought of any concern for basic health care. We have also begun the year by focusing on the quality of our services offered, better time management of our staff and as always, looking for ways to save on our costs through improving our efficiency in the way we conduct our services. Please know that all this has been made possible solely through the kindness of your generosity, for which we are most grateful. Thanking you always!
