Mobile Medical Unit
providing medical and optical access to the poor
poverty is still a main cause of the poor not having access to medical services.
One of the greatest joys in life is to see clearly again!
The Mobile Medical Unit project continues its endeavour to reach out to those who do not have access to proper medical services. Romania continues to struggle with medical care and each year the population hopes for positive changes in the system. Even with the backing of the EU, the infrastructure has not been stabilized. Though private clinics are springing up in the cities, only the upper middle class can take advantage of such alternatives. The majority of the country is still left wanting. This project is reaching out where it can to make a small difference.
As in the past, medical tests are expensive for the general public, yet once diagnosed, treatment is covered my the national insurance program. The team of doctors we work with helps to bridge that gap by offering diagnostic services for free. In addition, we offer free optical services including frames and lenses.
