Primary Health

FCAB’s founding vision was to provide primary and maternal health care in Bagdumur village and its surrounding populations which lacked access to adequate medical services. FCAB began its operations on February 8, 2015 with a free eye-camp providing eye exams and care, including cataract operations for the underserved in the area. In addition to these regular yearly eye camps, FCAB initiated various medical services, including a weekly medical camp providing the local community its first and, in many cases, only access to a doctor and free essential medicine, regular health screenings and health education by its paramedics, first aid and other support. Given its location on a major highway, it has treated motor accident, hit and  run and other medical trauma victims. It’s focus on gathering and monitoring health and demographic data enables it to adapt to the area’s changing needs and measure impact. Although the FCAB clinic and its services are open to everyone, its target are the poor and its greatest beneficiary are women who would otherwise lack these services. In the future FCAB can expand its services to more people who need them through telemedicine interventions and broader partnerships with hospitals, etc. as well as scaling existing activities or new projects based on assessing current impact and future need.
