Health concerns plague refugees on the Buduburam camp.
With the assistance of Saint Gregory’s clinic, VAAFD’s initiatives are two-fold:
- Provide counseling and support for those infected with debilitating and life-threatening illnesses. Orphans Against AIDS, a supporter of VAAFD, works to help children who have lost parents or family due to HIV.
- Educate the community about STD’s and other diseases inherent in camp-life through adult education workshops and school awareness programs.
NUCH, an initiative started by a previous volunteer, works with VAAFD to provide free basic hospital care to all teachers and students of CAMES.
