WHY HEALTHCARE

In the harsh cycle of poverty, healthcare is often an impossible reality. Even when low-cost or free healthcare is available, illiteracy prevents many of the poorest and sickest from knowing where to access it. DFN acts as a bridge between forgotten people and life-saving resources through basic hygiene instruction, initial diagnostic treatment, and preventative health education.

No one should have to choose between medicine or food on the table. No family should have to consider selling a child in order to avoid financial ruin from medical bills. Providing accessible healthcare in metropolitan cities as well as remote villages all over South Asia, eliminates these unthinkable choices. Your support saves lives and creates healthy, flourishing communities!

WHAT WE DO

Dignity Freedom Network supports healthcare initiatives all over South Asia. From full-service clinics to community health workers in the field, we are committed to serving the poor and marginalized. Our clinics are staffed by doctors and nurses who can advocate for patients with serious health concerns. Our schools also make sure students are vaccinated, have eye check-ups, and are taught dental hygiene.

Our clinicians are committed to a few standbys — an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure and an apple a day keeps the doctor away. That means we are committed to healing a stubbed toe before it turns into a raging infection. It also means we need more healthcare workers in the field. Our medical team also has visions of a hospital to serve even more at a deeper level.

HOW YOU CAN HELP

Child Sponsorship is the very best way to make sure children and their families have a community health worker in their neighborhood. It is our hope that we train up our own doctors and nurses from our Good Shepherd school graduates. However, you can also make a donation that will go directly to our medical team. They will use your gift to spread the gift of health to those who can afford it least.
