2013 NWCSS checkup & medicine

The friendly Dutch GP Alice has visited in the NWCSS orphanage to give the children a much needed medical checkup. She prescribed most children extra vitamins and here and there some throat tablets and eyedrops.

Medically speaking things are going reasonably well for the children. A single case of bronchitis, throat pain and infected eyes not withstanding. Nothing a little antibiotics or other kind of medicine can’t fix. 4SmilingFaces provides the proper medicine.

There is however an another problem thats needs clearing: a contagious skin disease. The only thing you can do to get rit of it is to wash and dry all the clothes en bedding in one day and put it in black plastic bags in the – preferably – burning sun for 72 hours. All the kids need to take a big shower and a total body wash and rub with a special crème  We will do this after the Dashain festival.

4 Smiling Faces

Smiling Faces is the abbreviation for the Helping Hands 4 Smiling Faces Foundation, that was started by Tjitske Weersma in 2008. We improve the living conditions of children in children’s homes in developing countries with specific, small-scale projects in which they are central. We also support them when they have to leave those homes at 18 and have no safety net to fall back on. With us they come first. With our help they’ll go so much further, are they able to make their own choices and can they make shape their own lives.
