Most disabled people in India have no access to medical care. And even when they do, how can they get there? Many can’t even walk or see! What happens when they have a medical emergency?
India’s Disabled does what it can for the people who reach our doors, but we simply don’t have the resources to go out and treat urgent medical needs for disabled people like Michael Chang. If he had a sudden medical problem while out on his own, there’s no one to take him to a hospital. He could die.
We get calls like this all the time – “Come fast, he needs help!” – and we can’t get to them in time. India’s ambulance service is way undermanned and rarely serves the disabled poor in the slum areas, and its health care system is overflowing and can’t handle the need.
What’s the solution?
A Mobile Medical Unit. This is a specially equipped and staffed van that can travel to meet health care crises for the disabled, wherever they happen. The Mobile Medical Unit will save disabled poor people from even more suffering. And sometimes, it will save their lives.
To purchase two vans and operate them for a full year costs just $21,500.
For less than the cost of a single car in the UK, you can bring emergency medical aid to the disabled in India for an entire year.
Will you help us purchase and equip two Mobile Medical Units?
