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. 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.                                                  

Your share will contribute to running the clinic for four months, including room rent, nurse’s salary and medicine.
