The Medical Clinic in Zokhawthar, India, was largely built by and funded by MMC and is focused on providing medical care to displaced, poor, and impoverished Chin refugees from Burma who have fled to India as a consequence of the oppressive Military rule in Burma/Myanmar. The Clinic is fully funded by MMC and provides free medical care and medicines to those in need. The Clinic in Zokhawthar is staffed by a Doctor, Nurse/Pharmacist, Nurses Aid, Lab Tech and Janitor. In addition we have a Clinic in the nearby community of Champhai that is staffed by a Head Nurse, Nurses Aid and Janitor. In addition, we have a Country Manager who is responsible for hiring of staff, capital projects, local budget and all reporting to the Canadian project managers. The India/Burma Clinics are providing 24/7/365 day sustainable support that is directly helping the destitute and poor to achieve a better standard of living through improved health and sanitation as well as directly saving lives and providing needed medical care.
MMC Volunteers, Brenda and Neil shared this picture and the plight of this fatherless family with MMC donors in Canada while they were there. This brings us to the second part of this story;
NEW YEAR’S BABY, MOTHER AND FAMILY SUPPORTED BY CANADIAN FAMILY.
A Canadian family living in Calgary fell in love with this picture and decided to take it upon themselves to assist this family. With a donation of $500 this Canadian family has been able to pay the rent for this families living accommodation enabling the Mother to provide better care for her children and barter/buy more nutritious food for the family. This is having a dramatic impact on the family and is improving their standard of living. Canadian dollars can go so far in a country like India/Burma. Just $500 can make a huge difference.
