Medical Program

Post image for Medical Program

Many street-children have long-term infections, illnesses and/or injuries that require urgent medical and nutritional attention.  This program provides that urgent care and attention, as well as attending to the day-to-day medical needs of the children in our care.

Were it not for the generosity of a number of local practitioners, the costs of this Program would be considerably higher.  We are indebted to these medical friends of Children of Mother Earth.

At each of our centres, we have:
