The District is building services for people on the margins. And of course, there are still gaps. The State will not provide injectable psychotrophic drugs, which help so many psychotic clients stay on their meds and live as a productive member of community. Nor does the State provide a subsidy for HIV and Hep B positive women who need to take anti-virals each month.
That's where we want to partner. Last year, we spent all of $1,600 to provide meds for over 100 clients. If you'd like to support us for 2018, we're looking for 7 donors who will give $10/month throughout the year. Donate on Colorado Gives Day or Giving Tuesday in Canada and we can match your donation!
In July, we received Ethics Committee (Leh District) approval for a five-year, research-to-action project that will identify children and youth with disabilities or mental health challenge,s and develop services to help them thrive to their best potential.
If you want to help us develop apps for a digital medical system, please get in touch. Or donate just $30 for a tablet-phone that allows the mom of a disabled kid to stay in touch with hospital-based specialists any day, from anywhere in Ladakh.
