Simien Mountains Mobile Medical Service aims to deliver free essential medical care to remote villages in the area by employing mobile nurses who travel between communities providing general medical care, health education, and immunizations as well as antenatal and postnatal care in areas inaccessible by other means. They also run a small clinic providing inpatient and outpatient care as well as delivery services for expectant mothers.
Specifically for Children:
Baby Blankets, Hats (for Premature Babies), and *Newborn Clothes
Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
