Burma

Medicines for Community Health Workers

Community Health Workers need a supply of medicines to serve remote villages in Burma. With your support, Dr Sasa and his ‘Health and Hope’ Society train one female and one male representative from many villages across Chin State, Burma, in basic medical knowledge. Hundreds of Community Health Workers (CHWs) have been trained, serving villages all across the State by saving lives otherwise lost to preventable diseases and easily-treatable conditions.

Replacement Medical Kit

Community Health Workers in remote villages in Burma need new supplies. Our Partners, Dr Sasa and his ‘Health and Hope’ Society, train Community Health Workers (CHWs) who serve remote villages all across Chin State, Burma, with basic but life-saving medical skills. These CHWs use basic medical equipment, such as stethoscopes, and in adverse physical conditions, equipment can wear out or become damaged easily.

$: 

Equipment for Study

Ethnic Nationals in Burma need text books and other study materials to become Community Health Workers. Our Partners, Dr Sasa and his ‘Health and Hope’ Society, train Community Health Workers (CHWs) who serve remote villages all across Chin State, Burma, with basic but life-saving medical skills. Once trained and supplied with basic medicines and equipment, these CHWs return to their villages across Chin State, where it is estimated their work saves eight out of ten lives otherwise lost to preventable diseases and avoidable conditions.

Food for patients in IDP camps

Displaced peoples face many challenges – food insecurity among the most urgent. Our Partner SWAN sends teams of medics to treat people displaced by violence (IDPS) living in camps along the Burma border. People in destitution have many needs, including shelter, medicine and food. Our partner works to meet all the needs it can with limited means. This donation is equivalent to providing one patient with a month’s supply of food in an IDP camp along the Burmese border.

Health monitoring in camps for displaced people

Our partner SWAN provides medical check-ups for people enduring destitution. For people displaced by violence in Shan State, Burma, the health visits made by our partner, the Shan Women’s Action Network (SWAN), to displacement camps is a lifeline. This gift is equivalent to supporting the cost of the medical teams’ monthly travel between camps along the Burma border.

$: 

Birth Bags for Traditional Birth Attendants

Our partner trains and equips 'traditional birth attendants' to improve maternal and child health. Because many villages in Chin State, Burma, are remote, women in labour are unable to access medical facilities or medically trained staff. Instead, they turn to Traditional Birth Attendants (TBAs) who are not medically trained. HART’s partner now trains TBAs so that they can offer a higher standard of care to mothers and newborn babies. In addition to training them, our partners provides a ‘birth bag’, containing everything they need to improve the birth experience for mother and child and, in some cases, save the lives of many mothers and babies which would have been lost previously.

Construction of a Village Clinic

Our partner hopes to build health centres in villages across Chin State. This generous gift is equivalent to the costs of establishing a local centre for saving lives in a remote village in Burma, meeting many kinds of medical emergency with basic but vital training and equipment.

$: 

Month of Care for Disabled In-patient

Providing care to individuals who would otherwise have no hope for recovery. In the Soviet era, disabled people did not receive care; they were simply ‘warehoused’ in institutions until they died of pressure sores and infections. Now in its post-Soviet context, Nagorno-Karabakh still has attitudes towards people with disablities which need transformation. HART’s partner, the Rehabilitation Centre, offers a broad range of therapies for people, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, hydrotherapy, speech therapy, psychotherapy, and art and music therapy. These therapies transform the lives of patients and push back against dated attitudes to disability in the community.

South Sudan

Food Aid: Sorghum for one person

Providing a staple food for people fleeing violence. HART’s partner delivers aid to communities fleeing systematic military assaults against civilian targets. With their food production and market systems in collapse, families are displaced into situations of destitution and are forced to forage for roots and tree leaves in an effort to survive. This gift is equivalent to the cost of enough Sorghum, a staple food, for one person for one month.

$: 

Four Jerry Cans

For carrying and storing water safely. Since December 2013, over 1.3 million people have been internally displaced within South Sudan by violence. With food and water sources stretched beyond their limits, safe drinking water is a vital commodity. This gift is equivalent to providing four jerry cans for collecting and transporting water safely.

$: 

200 Bricks

Solid walls and weatherproof roofs can make education possible. In South Sudan, the rainy seasons, poor infrastructure and the instability caused by the ongoing violence all contribute to difficult conditions for teaching and learning. Many schools are without buildings and have to operate under large trees, making learning difficult in wet weather. HART supports a number of schools in South Sudan, such as the Nyieth School in Warrup State, where we have assisted them in constructing and roofing classrooms. This gift is equivalent to covering the cost of buying 200 locally-made bricks to help build classrooms, store rooms and offices for teachers in Warrup State, South Sudan.

$: 

Mosquito Nets for Eight people

People are not the only inhabitants of IDP camps. Without basic infrastructure or services, staying healthy in a camp for Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) is a huge challenge. Mosquito nets can make all the difference to people living in totally inadequate shelter. This gift is equivalent to the cost of providing nets for eight people living in such conditions.

$: 

Donkey Hire for Project Monitoring

Four legs can be better than two when crossing difficult terrain. Visiting camps for people displaced by violence isn’t easy. This gift is equivalent to paying for the hire of a donkey to help our Partners cross challenging landscapes to monitor the health and wellbeing of people living in camps.

$: 

Food Aid: Sorghum for eight people

Providing a staple food for people fleeing violence. HART’s partner delivers aid to communities fleeing systematic military assaults against civilian targets. With their food production and market systems in collapse, families are displaced into situations of destitution and are forced to forage for roots and tree leaves in an effort to survive. This gift is equivalent to the cost of enough Sorghum, a staple food, for eight people for one month.

$: 

A Tent for a Displaced Family

Tents provide displaced families with a short term but highly effective defence against the elements – and mosquitoes. Inadequate shelter is a serious problem for families facing life in camps for Internally Displaced Peoples (IDPs) in South Sudan. People often arrive with only what they could carry, or nothing, having had only moments to gather their things before fleeing. Makeshift shelters do not keep out the cold or rain or wildlife, such as mosquitoes or other disease-carrying insects. A tent may be a short-term solution to a crisis, but it makes all the difference to the health of the family in it. This gift to HART’s work is equivalent to providing one tent for one family in an IDP camp.

$: 

Food Aid: Sorghum for sixteen people

Providing a staple food for people fleeing violence. HART’s partner delivers aid to communities fleeing systematic military assaults against civilian targets. With their food production and market systems in collapse, families are displaced into situations of destitution and are forced to forage for roots and tree leaves in an effort to survive.

Uganda

Nutrition Packs for a child living with HIV

This gift is equivalent to providing a month's supply of food supplements to one child living with HIV in Northern Uganda. The Patongo Orphan Infants’ Health Rehabilitation Centre (PAORINHER) is HART’s partner in Northern Uganda, delivering medical care, counselling and drug monitoring to children and families in an area where 11 percent of the population is living with HIV. This specialist paediatric health centre also provides regular ‘nutrition packs’ for 250 children in the local area living with HIV. These dietary supplements help caregivers provide enough protein to help their children’s bodies grow – critical to the health and well-being any child, especially those with compromised immune systems. This gift is equivalent to providing one child with a month of food supplements.

$: 

A week’s wage for a Cook or Cleaner

Cooks and cleaners help the children at the PAORINHER Centre build healthy bodies. The PAORINHER Centre supports over 280 children living with HIV in the community and a further 500 children at the on-site primary school, some of whom have the virus. The centre’s wonderful cooks and cleaners provide two meals a day for 500 primary-age school children to help them grow up with strong bodies and good hygiene habits, setting them up for healthier lives. This gift is equivalent to paying one week’s salary for a cook or a cleaner.

$: 

HIV tests

With the HIV infection rate in Pader District, northern Uganda, at 11%, PAORINHER’s clinical staff regularly test patients for HIV. Because of the lingering stigma associated with the virus, denial and refusal to be tested for HIV remain a problem in the community, especially among men. But for those with the virus, a test is the first step to a longer and healthier life because treatment can begin. This gift is equivalent to supplying a week’s worth of tests.

$: 

A week’s wage for a Senior Nurse

Nurses make health programmes happen. HART’s partner, PAORINHER, has a nursing team of two, with the senior nurse leading all aspects of the centre’s clinical care: from HIV testing and monitoring of anti-retroviral drug use to diagnosis and treatment – and even taking part in community education programmes. This gift is equivalent to paying one week’s salary for PAORINHER’s senior nurse.

$: 

Community education about HIV

Education about HIV saves lives and transforms stigma to acceptance. HART’s partner in Uganda, the PAORINHER Centre, teaches the local community of Patongo about the realities of HIV and AIDS. Setting up local support groups, speaking at village meetings, leafleting and radio advertising are all tried-and-tested ways of opening up conversations about the importance of testing, and how to care for those living with HIV. This gift is equivalent to a week’s worth of outreach activities.

$: 

A month’s wage for a Community Outreach Officer

'Prevention is better than cure', especially when it comes to HIV. HART’s partner in northern Uganda, the PAORINHER Centre, employs a small team of Community Outreach Officers to go out from the immediate area and reach into distant villages, often across challenging terrain. These officers not only run community education programmes and HIV-issues ‘sensitisation’, but also conduct door-to-door health screening and refer new patients to the Centre for life-saving treatment. They are often the first point of contact for HIV sufferers, and the means of accessing treatment. This gift is equivalent to paying one month’s salary for a Community Outreach Officer.

$: 

Medical supplies for HIV Clinic

A generous gift to provide a month's worth of medicine for PAORINHER, the paediatric HIV clinic. HART’s partner in northern Uganda, the PAORINHER Centre, monitors the health of nearly 800 children and treats an entire community for a broad range of diseases and conditions, including HIV and opportunistic infections. The Ugandan Government provides some life-saving drugs and equipment for free, such as anti-retrovirals and test kits, but it is up to HART and our partner, PAORINHER, to provide the rest. This very generous gift is equivalent to one month’s supply of medicines.
