Hameed* lives with his family at a brick kiln. At the beginning of December, the whole family fell sick with symptoms similar to influenza.
Hameed, who was already living hand to mouth, did not have money to provide even food and warm clothes to his family, let alone afford medication for everyone.
The whole family has been in slavery for the past decade for borrowing $1,500 in advance for his wife’s medical needs.
Luckily, we held a mobile clinic at that time at their brick kiln, and they came for a checkup. The whole family was suffering from high grade fevers along with other respiratory issues. Hameed’s little one was also having breathing issues.
Our medical team immediately provided the required medical assistance to the whole family. Within a few hours, their fevers were settled.
Thanks to the partnership of World Compassion Fellowship, RAM is able to frequently conduct mobile medical clinics at brick kilns. Medical care is usually inaccessible and often families are enslaved because of prior medical needs, like Hameed’s family.
