Health Care to the Rural People of Railaco !


In 2004, the Jesuit Mission in Railaco established a public health care program called the Mobile Clinic which is administered by the central Clinic Na’in Feto Virgem Maria in Railaco Villa. The aim of the program is to help local residents in remote areas to have access to health care, especially those who are not able to seek medical attention at a different location. This wheel-based health care service is truly beneficial for the people in the remote areas of Railaco and has helped to alleviate the health problems that the people in their respective areas.

The Mobile Clinic program is organized by Fr. Bong SJ who is responsible for the Jesuit Mission in Railaco and also this Mobile Clinic program.
