As most of you know, Holly and I are volunteers in rural Deodurga India. We have been here for about two months now and have loved all of our experiences so far.
If you are coming from the Facebook Operation Christmas page, you have found the right place to donate for school supplies! Also on this page we are fundraising for the medical clinic.
After speaking with the community about the medical clinic run here, we found out that it did not receive as many donations as in previous years. This lack of funding is threatening the clinic's ability to stay open and help not only the children at the school (over 100 boarding students and 500 day schoolers) but also over 100 small villages in the surrounding area. The clinic provides basic care and checkups for hundreds of patients from all walks of life- both the street children and the working class. If funds are not quickly raised, all of the people being served will have no access to medicine or information about how to treat even basic illnesses. Most people from these outer villages do not have cars, motorcycles, or any means of leaving to get help. Most villages do not even have electricity or running water. Sr. Rosbie goes to the villages 5 days out of the week to treat hundreds of patients for common sickness, such as the cold or fever, but also for the more intense diseases such as Malaria, Typhoid, Dengue Fever, and Japanese Encephalitis.
Without funding, Sr. Rosbie will also lose her placement here in Deodurga from lack of work. This will directly impact the children Holly and I work with not only because they will not have medical resources, but also because they will lose one caretaker. I urge you to please donate for this wonderful cause. Although you may not be able to directly see where your donations are going, you are saving many, many lives.
Once we see what donations we have received by mail, we will split the donations raised on this page accordingly for more school supplies and the medical clinic.
Thank you so much for your time and generosity,
Holly and Veronica
