We strongly believe that only a healthy society can be productive enough to develop. This is why SHEWD emphasizes on providing basic medical care to people in remote areas deprived of medical facilities.
Key achievements of this programme have been two successful "Eye Camps". Eye problems were a key healthcare concern for the villagers of the rural Lalitpur district. SHEWD, therefore, organized two free "Eye Camps", where over a 1000 villagers had their eyes checked and were given medication. A total of 26 villagers underwent successful eye surgeries. Due to these much-needed surgeries these patients were spared from blindness and a life in isolation.
Our experience from the two "Eye Camps" has shown that there is an urgent need for a "Women's Health Camp" in the region. Many local women suffer from gynecological problems but lack the means of consulting specialized medical care. SHEWD is, therefore, organizing a "Women's Health Camp", for spring 2008. Though, the Nepalese Government has promised free medical healthcare for the poor, we strongly doubt that free gynecological healthcare will soon be available in the rural Lalitpur district. If you'd like to learn more about how you can support our "Women's Health Camp", please do not hesitate to contact us.
By buying our high quality fashion items you will directly support the women involved in our HIPKNIT project. In order for the women to be eligible for participation, they have to attend the free basic literacy programm organized by SHEWD and commit themselves to sending their children to school. The women will receive a well above average salary and remaining profits will directly be reinvested into expanding the HIPKNIT project, as well as, other community projects from which the women will profit as well.
