Volunteers change lives overseas

Equal Health provides free health care to people in need in developing countries which makes a profound difference to people's lives.

Our health professional volunteers bring sight to the blind, relief from dental pain, freedom of movement and improved health through providing access to multi-disciplinary health care.

Imagine not being able to go to the doctor when you're unwell or to the dentist when you have a toothache. This is the reality many people in India and other developing countries face today, who simply don't have access to everyday health services that most Australians take for granted.

Learn more about Equal Health through the following video.

Reflecting on what an incredible year 2017 was, we thought we'd share an update on some of the amazing work that Equal Health did in India last year.

Starting with our 2017 Camp, our Optical team dispensed over 2,000 pairs of spectacles. Our Medical team saw over 700 people while our dentists saw 400 patients, another successful camp.

We have a few projects that we have supported in 2017;

  • $5,000 donated to the toilet project - supplying toilets for villages (made by women) where fertiliser is made from the waste.
  • $2,000 injected into an education program for HIV in Trichy, Tamil Nadu.
  • $2,000 to support an assistant teacher for the SEVAI school in Trichy, Tamil Nadu.
  • $5,000 being contributed towards an education program at Shishur Sevay home for children with disabilities.
  • $5,000 towards the Sanitary napkin project at Anandaniketan in Katwa, West Benga l, Providing affordable sanitary napkins to women in low-income communities within India, who otherwise do not have access to the such products, in India teenage girls living in these areas are unable to attend school while they are menstruating and miss on average 3 months schooling per year. Anandaniketan, where the Sanitary Napkin machine will be located, provides residential care to 350 children, adolescents and adults. The residents have physical, mental and/or intellectual disabilities and many are orphans. The machine will also provide employment for the girls we will train to operate and maintain it.

This has all been made possible by the hard work and dedication of our incredible Australian Health Professional volunteers and committee, the very generous donations, the Indian communities and everyone else who has supported Equal Health over the years.

Thank you for making this possible.

Looking forward to an amazing 2018 for everyone!

We wish our January camp all the best for their upcoming camp on the January 6, closely followed by our February camp to Trichy, Tamil Nadu.

There are many exciting things happening for Equal Health in the new year, stay tuned and join us for some of our fundraising events or on our next camp.
