Medicine: The project sponsorship that heals
The medical aid of ROKPA is based on two main pillars: improving basic medical care and emergency relief. With this approach, we achieve long-term changes, but also provide immediate relief in acute health problems.
The ROKPA medical projects include focal points for health problems. The offer is aimed at people in need who cannot afford the necessary treatment themselves.
In Nepal, the Soup Kitchen is complemented every winter with a medical ambulatory. There, volunteer doctors and nursing staff provide first aid to destitute people. For life-saving operations, those affected are put in hospital and the cost is covered. In ROKPA Children’s Home, a doctor sees the children during the yearly routine check.
Also in Harare / Zimbabwe, the so-called "Drop-In Center", together with a ROKPA Doctor, takes care of the medical care for the poorest.
