Sanitation and Medication

 Everyone should be entitled to the privacy of a toilet.  In the fishing villages, there is often only a hole deep in the sand. Before we left Sri Lanka last week, we paid to have a private toilet  and plumbing installed within some new brick walls..  The villagers have been hard at work and have already sent us photos of progress so far.   Thanks to FODAD supporters, the villagers will have a toilet and plumbed in water.

Medicine and doctors visits are expensive.    For just under 12 years, FODAD has paid for  a free clinic.  Open once a week,  the clinic has 3600 registered patients and 11 voluntary doctors working in rotation.  FODAD supplies all of the prescription drugs, pays for x-rays and any specialist visits.   We also takes out vitamin supplies  from England.
