Medical treatment and training
Every year, over 13 million children under the age of five die from illnesses which could have been avoided.
In the poorest regions of the world medical care is not only at a premium, in some areas it’s non-existent. Ironic really, because in these areas sustained healthcare could not be more urgent.
Qualified medical professionals volunteer with Humanitas charity to address this gap. Their work is crucial. They save lives but they also enable lives to be lived, to the fullest extent possible.
Without our help these individuals might never receive the medical care they so urgently need.
We have two areas of focus:
Providing ongoing treatment for sick or disabled children living in extreme poverty
Training local doctors in the newest interventions & equipping local hospitals
Our volunteer team of surgeons, physiotherapists and other medical experts treat children in developing countries that are in urgent need of medical care.
We diagnose, treat and, on certain occasions, operate on abandoned children who are without access to professional medical attention.
Our medical specialists work closely with less privileged local doctors, enabling them to gain from our expertise and more progressive medical methods.
Our doctors have trained at some of the world’s most prestigious medical institutions, meaning it’s a super opportunity for native practitioners to benefit first-hand from their experience. This helps to embed positive change and ensures best practice is carried forward into the future.
Our continual focus in these areas ensures a sustainable future of medical treatment for generations of children to come.
We have had great success in the poorest regions of Eastern Europe. But the fight doesn’t stop there.
