Medical and hygienic activities
Medical check- up was considered the first priority from the day one. Therefore, it was decided the children should be examined by a general physician first, then according to their needs the appropriate specialists will take over the cases. Basically the kids were suffering from traumatic and emotional problems, which had to be removed first for the all other health issues. Therefore, a team of doctors and specialists was formed to meet the requirements. This medical team includes General physician, Homeopath, psychologist, counsellor, E F T (emotional freedom technique) trainer, and life coach. Also, it is good to mention that there had been few successful surgical cases as well, such as hearing impairment, which was fixed with cochlea implant. The child’s hearing has been improved, but he is still under observation. The other case was a Thalassemia one which needed a bone marrow transplant. The operation was successful and the boy is still under medical observation, being looked after by the two trained sisters, for another six months, in Tehran.
