"As we are working in Dagonseikkan (squatters camp) , we know and see many thing  need for health ,In Dagonseiikan there is one small clinic but the clinic open only until 12:00 noon , and not every day .  Dagonseiikan is far from government hospital, The community  they cannot go easily because they need to spend transportation, food, medicine.

In Dagonseikkan there is difference kind of disease like diarrhea skin diseases  cough etc . There are so many  pregnant lady who were do not know how to care during pregnancy.  In Dagonseikkan most of them have home delivery. The children were malnutrition."
if we have fund we want to do more health care  to help the people .
Now two of the staff go twice a week and we would want to increase the out reach and if money was more we could do more.

 The "do more" means that we would be able to go into the community each day and visit with individual families and assess the health and social needs of the family. We would do a cursory assessments and then provide logistical support for medical treatment if needed.

Sometimes a bag of rice, sometimes education, sometimes the purchase of medicine, or even help to supplement the cost for a family to stay in a home. Domestic abuse is common, alcoholism is common, as are all the problems that are derived by extreme poverty. These are the problems that are addressed normally by community health services, but these services are nonexistent in DS (Dagonseikkan) save for the staff of CCM.
 1. Tu khah Pih Sung (a small baby) , she may need  to spend a round one lack for medicine ,transportation , Doctor fee etc. (Awaiting further details from Mawite)
2. Jone Na De Oo, She may need to spend  for medicine, transportation Doctor fee around 70,000 kyats ($52) (Awaiting further details from Mawite)
3. Nutritional supplements for mother and malnourished child recently released from hospital. 
4. Hearing specialist for one of the hostel children
5. Vitamin supplements for children and several of the pregnant ladies in DS.
6. Many children with fungal and bacterial skin infections in DS.
7. Colds, flu, and assorted childhood diseases go untreated in DS village
8. Diarrhea, gastrointestinal problems common in DS.
9. Insufficient wound care common in DS
10. Dental problems are untreated and is a major problem in DS 
11. Need to provide logistics for initial clinic visits for pregnancies

 It is important that the field staff have the discretion and flexibility to use services outside of the DS community and are able to offer medicines, social services and logistical support in a timely manner. We act when emergencies come, but we are quite limited in our outreach capacity and this is the purpose of our request.
