Case study: The amazing work of the Guarjila health clinic
“Here, you receive support. Here, they take care of you even for small things.” Lurvin, who lives locally to the clinic and received healthcare during her pregnancy
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. CAFOD continues to provide funding for the clinic so it can offer specialist health support, including gynaecology, paediatric care, nutrition advice 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.”
Your gift can bring health support like this to other vulnerable communities in hard-to-reach, rural places.
