Healthy children in India

The first 16 months of the Pediatric Outpatient Center 

Dhenkanal January 2023

 

Our pediatric outpatient clinic in Dhenkanal in the Indian state of Orissa is now in service since the end of August 2021.

The goal of this clinic is to provide affordable and accessible health care to the children in the local area and also to help other people who seek our help. The on-site team consists of a doctor, an experienced and a junior nurse, an accountant, a ward and a driver. The clinic is open 5 days a week from 9am to 5pm. Our on-site team is doing a fantastic job. So far we have treated over 3200 patients and the demand is increasing. We have also successfully treated children with clubfoot through cooperation with various specialists.

 

We thank all supporters for this project and their trust in our work. ​
