revive Provides Medical Care in the Slums
October 2015 revive had the opportunity to send a medical team to Delhi, India to provide free medical clinics in two of Delhi’s poorest slum areas. Two one-day clinics were held in two different slums which served two hundred patients. The age of patients ranged from 10 months to 62 yrs old.
Patient concerns ranged from nutritional deficiencies, musculoskeletal conditions, parasitic (like lice and intestinal worms), infectious disease (like TB, typhoid and malaria), gastrointestinal disorders, skin conditions, female issues, hypertension, upper respiratory, ear infections and vision concerns. Vitamins and medications were available free of charge as needed.
No advertisement was done. Word travels fast! The community was so gracious and grateful for the service provided by our team. Many patients left the clinic to later return with their spouse, neighbors, family or friends. As always, the team went to serve but came away feeling they received a larger blessing than they could have given. They received many words and symbols of thanks, perhaps the most heartwarming was "thank you for loving our people".
Revive looks forward to this being an annual opportunity. The medical mission was scheduled for October 9-18, 2014. For more information or the opportunity to participate in events like these, please contact Marty.
