About Our Project
Your backing over the last few months has really helped catapult this project forward. From the Health-Point Project (HPP), we have now become a foundation. This would not have been possible without the immense support that has come our way from you all. We are reaching out to you again to request your continuing support, so we may persevere in delivering emergency care and further expand our services to where they are needed the most.
After the inception of HPP in the refugee camps in France last year by Dr Hadia Aslam, we extended its reach to refugees arriving in Moria, Greece. Since then, we have established a system that provides holistic healthcare (including minor surgery, dental aid and an outreach programme), and the project has really gone from strength to strength with YOUR backing. As Health-Point Foundation (HPF) we provide all of the above, including training opportunities and psychological support for volunteers.
We are a group of experienced and dedicated healthcare volunteers from all corners of the globe. Every single person in our team (including recruitment angels, web superstars, medics, dentists and many more!) is a volunteer and we therefore rely heavily on your kind donations for us to continue delivering.
We have successfully set up a medical centre in Moria complete with enthusiastic volunteers, donated medical equipment, a mini pharmacy, emergency dental unit and a slightly battered (but working) autoclave! There are no frills but the centre is fit-for-purpose and allows us to treat hundreds of patients every day. However, we need funds to keep the medical centre running; we need supplies, rent for rental vehicles for mobile facilities and aid for long term volunteer's arrangements, in order for this work to develop into a better established outreach facility.
Our vision is to extend our services to other parts of the world facing similar hardships, and for this reason we are approaching you. So please continue to support us in any way you can; donate, spread the word, start a cake sale! It would be an honour and privilege to be able to run and expand this project with your help.
A HEARTFELT THANKS!
