The charity funds regular medical programmes for the less privileged people of India with simple medication and eye surgeries, in local villages and slum areas.
The medical work is supervised by local doctors that Transforming Lives Today work with in India. Treatment is provided for men, women and children, with extra care given for children and mothers with newborn babies. TLT gives simple medication for fever, diarrhoea, sickness, skin infections, chest infections etc. Many lives have been saved with simple medication for curable diseases. Eye surgery is also offered when urgent care is needed; eye problems are very common in India.
By raising donations through the charity and MMN, the team have been able to purchase medication and it is distributed through medical camps. The team and pastors in India oversee the camps with the doctor’s supervision supplying records and reports. Camps are set up in tents in villages and slums if there is no indoor facility available, TLT prefer a closed area as it’s better for hygiene and weather conditions. Local doctors examine patients and keep records. Many times, TLT also offer food to the patients.
