HEALTH AREA

       
     

 

     
    Tuberculosis: We have been trained to recognize the symptoms of tuberculosis and upon detection take all children to the local health clinic for treatment.
   
   

Dental: Most children come to us without having ever received professional dental care or having been taught proper dental hygiene. Once in our care, children learn how to care for their teeth and are screened for:

  • Cavities
  • Decayed teeth
  • Periodontal diseases
  • Malocclusion
  • Endodontia
  • Gingivitis
   
    Acute Respiratory Infections and Acute Diarrhea: We have been trained to recognize these conditions and upon detection, children are immediately taken to the local health clinic.
   
    Drug Use: We actively encourage our children to avoid engaging in drug use and regularly give lectures on the effects of such use as well as how not to succumb to peer pressure.
   
    Parasites: We are able to test for parasites with the support of outside organizations and universities.
   
    Fluoridation.- Successfully carried out to include 100% of the Home's population.
   
    Ophthalmology: We provide ophthalmic care to all children in need. Approximately 21% of our children require eyeglasses.
   
    Child Development: We have partnered with the local health clinic to ensure that all children receive annual physical exams.
