Details

Burmese refugees have very limited access to health care facilities in Delhi, given the language barrier and the cost of medicines. The WRWAB clinic provides free health care to Burmese refugees, and this includes primary care, minor operations, and prenatal care for pregnant women. A certified, experienced nurse from Burma provides the treatment, and patients receive medicines free of charge. The clinic is open three days a week from 4pm to 6pm, and an emergency nurse is available for home visits.

You can help by contributing to the costs of running the clinic for two months, including room rent, nurse’s salary, medicine, and transportation.
