Opening of a new Mobile Clinic site

Villages and plantations served by Mobile Clinic

On Saturday 25 May 2019, Medacross' team went on a mission to Y-Den Village, 45 miles from Kawtahung.
Despite the distance is the same as with Taiwan palm oil plantation and Nam-Tom Village, it takes much longer to reach Y-Den. About 4 and a half hours for the outward journey and 4 hours for the return journey. After an hour's journey by the main road, the remaining route winds through palm oil plantations. The speed cannot be high given the road, weather conditions and also many trucks and workers occupy the roads.
Once in the village, we settled in a newly built school with a large garden outside. The patients were many, over 120, but we were able to register and visit all of them. 
Lunch break we ate in the village chief's house. Inside the house there is a small pharmacy where the owner does everything possible to assist people for free. Once a month the owner goes to Kawthaung to supply the pharmacy with the money obtained from the offers of the villagers.

The Y-Den mission has brought together several villages:
TZK, Ever Green, Num Tung, Aung Thar Yar, Aye Mya Thar Yar, Aye Mya Minglar and Myaing Thar Yar.

The total number of villages and plantations served is now 12, with over 2000 patients.
