Hope 4 Our Children helped one free clinic at Sigli area to help economically disadvantaged families and tsunami victims who live in the surrounding area. The program was initiated in February 2006 by Faizah Badeges, Hope 4 Our Children’s Co-Founder and Board of Trustee, when she and two volunteers (Debra Dirks and Stephanie Parlove) visited Aceh. They identified a free clinic that lacked equipment and supplies. The clinic lacked medical equipment and essential medication, such as penicillin, painkillers. Hope 4 Our Children provided funds to buy equipment and supplies for Sigli free clinic managed by a local partner, Yayasan Ilham, one volunteer doctor and two nurses.
The clinic now has various medical equipment such as thermometer, blood pressure monitor, exam bed; and medication: which includes penicillin, flu/cold/cough medicine, fever medicine, anti biotic, diarrhea/gastrointestinal, medicines. The fund was also allocated for a doctor’s stipend and two nurses’ stipend.
