Project #313 | Mobile Healthcare and Ambulance Service in Nagaland

Our partnership with Pro Rural

Tribal and rural communities face challenges accessing quality healthcare in India. In Nagaland, a mountainous state in northeast India, transportation is a primary barrier to accessing healthcare. The Health Department in Tening Block has only 3 medical doctors for 27 villages. Common preventable diseases in the region include diarrhea, intestinal worms, skin diseases, and waterborne illnesses.  In addition, women and children frequently experience malnutrition and anemia. It is common for people in Nagaland’s remote Peren District to walk multiple days to reach a Primary Health Center, which may or may not be adequately staffed.

ODW is partnering with Pro Rural to provide essential healthcare services to 27 rural communities in Nagaland’s Peren District.  Our partnership will enable Pro Rural to purchase a 4-wheel-drive ambulance that can navigate the area’s challenging terrain. It will be stocked with essential medications and staffed with trained medical professionals.  The vehicle will visit each of the 27 villages on a monthly basis to provide preventative care and treat basic diseases and infections. As needed, the ambulance will transport patients with urgent needs to an established hospital. Pro Rural will also host a series of trainings on sanitation, hygiene, and nutrition, and will run a campaign to promote child vaccinations.

Project Goals




Thank you for making this possible!

Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
