WHAT WE DO
We make the world a better place one community at a time, working as a collaborative effort to heal the world and the planet.
We help alleviate suffering (illness, blindness, malnutrition, amputations, infection, tooth decay, and gum disease, to name a few) by providing sustainable health care, and education and approach it in a holistic manner. We choose to help in areas that ask for our assistance and are not currently receiving the care they need. We build clinics in partnership with communities, without pushing our own agenda or ideology, but rather by working together and intergrating our ideas within the community's developmental strategies, customs, and culture.
Our aim is to build free eco-friendly, locally built, and co-designed clinic/ infirmary/ pharmacies globally in the most challenging regions. We empower the community to sustain the projects and bridge relationships with governments and other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs), trusting that they will help water the seeds we have planted and bring them to maturation.
AD+World Health started in Tawang, India, a region that is geographically challenging, difficult to access, and with scarce resources. The area is lacking in medical infrastructure due to the geographical isolation, severe poverty, and ongoing struggles with bordering nations. Health care was, if not non-existent, inaccessible for most.
Not only do we work at the 'end of the road', we focus efforts close to home as well. At present, we have ongoing projects in South Los Angeles and Tijuana, Mexico. AD+World Health's most recent project is located in Downey, California to provide health care services for the uninsured and the underinsured in the area. It will also serve as a training site for health care professionals.
Our work is based on the assumption that we are all interconnected. We are our brothers' keepers!
