Life-saving Medical Care

Give the gift of health.
Feed a Malnourished Child
A gift of $75 provides a two month regime of fortified peanut butter-based therapeutic food for a child suffering from malnutrition. This includes weekly staff supervision and treatment of related health problems such as worms and opportunistic infection. The prevalence of malnutrition keeps the need for this program very high.
Help a starving child thrive.
A gift of $40 provides a full slate of nine initial tests for pregnant women and a full course of prenatal vitamins to take during the pregnancy. Give in increments of $40 to care for multiple pregnant mothers. This year we saw 30 pregnant women each week and as the clinic grows so does the patient base.
Promote healthy mothers and babies.
10 Diagnostic Lab Tests
A gift of $30 provides 10 lab tests for patients in need. These tests are provided to patients free of charge. This gift will help the Lamp health center diagnose a range of conditions and illnesses and ensure the proper treatment protocols. Our in-house government- approved lab performs over 80 different tests for more than 5,000 patients each year.
Support high quality diagnosis and proper treatment
Expand Teacher Training
A gift of $30 contributes towards teacher training. In 2017, Lamp hosted its first week-long teacher training workshop as part of the direct assistance we provide to local schools. We want to continue to expand this in 2018. All children in a school benefit when teachers are better trained and prepared. Help us support this important community development project.

Full Treatment for Every Patient
A gift of $22 covers the cost of full medical treatment for a typical patient. This includes the patient's consultation with the doctor, lab testing, medications and any specialized services such as x-ray, EKG, or nebulizer, as needed. These medical costs are subsidized to ensure the care is accessible. The patient pays only 25 cents for their care.
