Good health is important for well-being and happiness. But it is also an important element in ensuring a healthy population and economic progress.
The barrier between adequate and poor health care is poverty. Poor families cannot buy medicines and hygiene items needed to ensure good health - this also includes quality food, safe drinking water, and general health care. Without good health as a basis, everything else crumbles.
Healthy people create healthy societies
Disease-free children can develop, play, learn, go to school and build self-confidence through a healthy lifestyle. Societies become stronger when the population is healthy and able to work. Prevention is one of the most effective methods in the fight against disease-related poverty. Children and families in developing countries now suffer from diseases that could easily have been prevented or treated with the right medical help, resources, and facilities.
Imdad Relief Foundation focuses on health care for those most at risk of malnutrition and disease. We also work closely to find solutions that prevent diseases from spreading, with a particularly strong focus on clean drinking water. Waterborne diseases can be easily prevented if there is access to the right facilities. Without clean water, these diseases spread quickly and the outcome is often fatal.
Areas with low incomes, vulnerable communities, and refugees living in temporary housing are very vulnerable to diseases that have been easily prevented. Imdad Relief Foundation works to develop important health projects in these communities and prioritizes health through safe water, hygienic facilities, and healthy food.
Building good health from the ground up
At-risk societies have several barriers when it comes to access to health services: geographical, political, and logistical barriers. Imdad Relief Foundation works to overcome these inequalities through partnership, coordination, problem-solving, and innovation in the field. Good health services and access to free treatments are some of our priorities when we work in developing countries.
One of our goals is to establish medical centers and clean water for communities that suffer and lack resources. Many diseases can be easily treated, as long as the right health services are in place and are available to everyone.
