Guarjila Health Clinic
"Patients don't have to go to the city to see the doctor. They can have their problems treated here." Dr Dagoberto Menjívar, El Salvador
During the civil war in El Salvador, the community of Guarjila was cut off from the rest of the country. To receive essential healthcare, the villagers decided to set up their own clinic themselves. CAFOD is providing funding for the clinic so it can offer specialist medical support, including gynaecology, paediatric care, nutrition and counselling. Head Doctor Dagoberto Menjívar says the quality of healthcare has been transformed. "The clinic is very important for people here because it's local and provides quality healthcare", he explains. Your gift can help bring medical support like this to rural communities that need it.
