With this service, we are filling an essential need for transfers between Vial camp and the hospital.
At the beginning, there were charities on the island offering free transportation for scheduled appointments at the hospital. When these charities left, several organisations contributed funds to continue the service, however this ended at the beginning of 2022, leaving a gap again. Doctors stress how important is that the people make it to their appointments, especially the regular appointments. For example, for pregnant women there is only one gynecologist at the hospital, so if the appointment is missed it will have to be rescheduled 15 days later.
With the help of generous donors, we are now able to help refugees have access to this vital service.
