Where it all started.
The idea appeared back in 2017, when Freek and Luc went to South- India to shoot a documentary about the value of education for kids in the region around Kovalam. They noticed that a lot of people had bad looking wounds where nobody was taking care of. These citizens weren’t able to receive proper care because they simply could not pay the hospital bill. Wounds worsened and breadwinners of families weren’t able to provide financial support for their family anymore. We felt we could take a bet to set up a project wherein we could help those families.
In order to achieve something we have to start with small steps.
What are we actually trying.
We know that India is big and so are their humanitarian problems. But in order to achieve something we have to start with small steps. We are not changing the world but for some individuals we make impact on a personal level. Our main vision is create as much as impact as possible to better the health related quality of life for unprivileged patients in South- India.
How it looks like in a nutshell.
Our Indian woundcare nurses (Athira) wakes up at 8:00 and starts her day by having a good cup of chai- tea. She takes the bus to work and grabs her wound care materials. We provided a white scooter which drives her to the home visits of patients with wounds. There she provides the best possible woundcare. While making photo’s and writing all the details of the wound she asks help from the dutch woundcare company via our custom build application called woundmonitor. She works from monday untill friday and before the end of the week she reports the progress that has been made to all the partners.
Why does it work?
We believe that the only reason this project works so well is because we have the right partners at the right place working strongly together for a good cause. Without self-interest.
