TIMA Free Clinic in Haiti
Since the 2010 Haiti Earthquake, Tzu Chi International Medical Association (TIMA) has set up free clinics for people who cannot afford basic medical services. In each free clinic event, there was at least 20 Haitian physicians and 30 nurses to serve about 800 patients in poor communities. Starting in August 2013, Tzu Chi volunteering physicians have performed operations to patients for free. In response to prevent the spread of Tungiasis, Tzu Chi volunteers cure Tungiasis patients, promote the awareness of Tungiasis prevention, and apply insecticide in breeding sites.
