Charitable Health Clinics in Orissa  : Grassroots Asia currently helps support a variety of medical clinics in Orissa, India, where health care is often unavailable or unaffordable. Vitamins for lactating mothers who suffer from malnutrition, medications, health camps, minor construction, and doctor's salaries are some of the expenses that Grassroots Asia contributes. More than 50,000 patients per year visit the free clinics.

Healthcare Education  : WISH conducted a Home Health Aid course in Hariharananda vocational training Center in Tulsipur. . The Grassroots India organized Home Health series of classes address topics such as first aid, communication, ethics, and management skills, geriatrics, diseases, medications, rehabilitation, disabilities, infectious diseases and abuse. The course includes video, live demonstration, written tests, & practice exercises.

Children's Surgeries & Medicines  : Grassroots Asia sponsors individual children's medicines and surgeries. Care is afforded to those who are so poor that they would not recieve proper care without aid.

India and Cambodia

Mobile Medical and Dental Services in Orissa and Cambodia  : Grassroots Asia donates medical and dental supplies to mobile services that offer free care to remote villages, orphanages and schools. Parents are encouraged to send children to school (especially girl children) when they know medical care is given at the school. Grassroots Asia has forged a relationship between dental colleges and NGO's to expand care to remote villages and schools in Orissa, India. Grassroots Asia also donated mobile dental equipment to the Angkor Children's Hospital in Siam Reap, Cambodia, greatly expanding their care to rural areas.

Volunteer Dentists and Doctors  : Grassroots Asia arranged for two dentists (who contributed their expenses and volunteered their time) to provide dental services to villagers. Delivering a portable dental unit to the Angkor Children's hospital the two dentists from the U.S. joined a team of Cambodia dentists to treat over 100 orphans and villagers who had little or no access to dental care.

Medical Care for Individual Children  : Grassroots Asia provides health care, including surgical procedures and medications for poor children in need. We utilize a team of high-quality, dedicated physicians.
