Public Health Education

Manos de la Caridad, currently is implementing an “Essential Public Health Package” of educational materials that can be used nationally and internationally to educate people at the 5th grade level. Our program will deal with the prevention of disease and infection, immunizations, treatment of parasites, family planning and AIDS prevention. We promote the reduction in consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other drugs. Distribution of medical health information will benefit people living without basic resources. This program is consistent with suggestions made by the World Health Organization, in its “2010 Millennium Goals” guidelines.

Below, is Manos de la Caridad’s first educational video set. This four set series was produced in Spanish for the Peruvian community. This in an attempt to educate on cleft lip and palate treatment and care, prior to and after surgery. Manos de la Caridad, with the San Francisco De Asis Sonrisa Program, introduced the video set in Arequipa and Lima for over 100 patients in January of 2011.

The families of the patients were most grateful for the education. The doctors were excited for the educational opportunities that could benefit the many children and families who needed instruction after cleft lip and palate surgery. We were asked to provide additional educational materials by our missionary counterparts in Peru.

Series 2011 Ver. 01 Cleft Palate Care – Serie 2011 Paladar Hendido Cuidado Ver. 01

  • When your child has a cleft lip – Cuando su hijo tiene labio leporino
  • When your child has a cleft palate – Cuando su hijo tiene el paladar hendido
  • Caring for your child after surgery cleft lip or cleft palate – Cómo cuidar a su hijo después de la cirugía del labio leporino o el paladar hendido
  • Supportive treatment of cleft lip or cleft palate – Tratamiento de apoyo para el labio leporino o el paladar hendido
  • * In “Series 2011 Ver. 01 Cleft Palate Care” we used computer generated voices and by all standards are very basic. The pronunciation of words by the computer generated program, the speed at which the animations talked were issues we felt needed to be improved upon in order to provide an informative product.

    In our next releases, we replaced computer generated voices with voices of actors and actresses. We introduced more children friendly characters and also purchased additional software so we could provide a more professional product in an HD format.

    A Word from our Sponsor

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan

    On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

    “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?”

    He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.

    “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

    But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

    In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’

    “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”

    The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

    Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”

    02/01/2012 A Message from our Executive Director

    This year’s trip was a very emotional and eye opening experience for myself and the rest of our group.
    The women and children were coming for medical reasons, but also many came for a glass of water. When a mother comes with their child and the child has not had water for two days, and we offer a glass of water, it breaks my heart as a mother to know the difficultly in helping your child to meet the basic needs of survival.
    For many, water comes from a contaminated river they wash clothes, cook with, and bath in. Many of the people would purchase drinking water if they were able to afford it. Many can not and can not go without. They drink what they have. Please help us to support them on future missions.
