Medical Outreach to Tribes

Many of the tribes of the South Omo valley are extremely remote areas and many do not have access to virtually any kind of medical care. When visiting the Tara people it was explained how only a few years before TB had come to that tribe and because no medical treatment was available nearly half of them perished. Most of the medical challenges faced by such tribes are easily treatable but if there is no clinic, no medicine and no doctor or nurse, many needlessly die each year. The first step is to sponsor medical treatment to be brought to such locations by helicopter. This costs about $1000/month. After a relationship is established and ongoing medical supplies and personnel are located a clinic can be built. You can sponsor a doctor to bring medical care to remote villages by way of a remote temporary clinic for $1000.
