Care for the Body and Mind
As part of caring for the whole person, Compasio provides access to basic health care for impoverished migrant communities including the garbage dump community. Our community mentors educate children & families about nutrition, hygiene and basic medical care. As our team invests in the well-being of those in the community, we build friendship and trust which gives us more credibility as we teach important life skills beyond medicine such as the importance of education and literacy for their children. We also respond to medical emergencies and provide transportation to clinics and hospitals when needed.
