Primary Care Clinic, Yayawatta, I.S.P. Tsunami Village, Seenimodara, Tangalle
Sri Lanka marks the birthplace of Real Medicine Foundation, the place where the first promise was made and the concept of “Friends Helping Friends Helping Friends” was born. Five years after the tsunami, rural villages in Southern Sri Lanka still face challenges of coping with psychological trauma, poverty, and infectious disease out-breaks.
Real Medicine’s clinic, now in its fourth year, remains fully active and continues to grow. Initially established after the tsunami to serve one community of 400, the Real Medicine Clinic now provides free health care access to over 4,000 people in five impoverished villages.
