Although we aim respond to emergency situations around the world and offer aid where needed, our main focus is designing and implementing evidence based long term healthcare provision projects for the poor.
The drop down menu below enables you to look at our projects being undertaken in specific countries around the world.
DWW has been in Pakistan since 2004. Through our emergency response we provided significant medical aid and expertise during the Kashmir Earthquake and the devastating floods of 2010 and 2011 helping thousands of people. Subsequently we moved into long term and sustainable health development and now work in rural parts of Sind Province focusing on Maternal and Child Health.
DWW has been working in the Democratic Republic of Congo since 2004, providing a health care system focused on Maternal Health in Katanga Province, SE Congo. It's a challenging environment; Katanga is 497,000 sq km in size and 16x as large as Belgium. Our new hospital in Lubumbashi is the most modern in the region and acts as a hub for 5 rural maternal and medical centers.
We've been in Kenya since 2009 and work in Mombasa, Kilifi and Lamu Counties. We also worked in Dadaab in 2011. We have 3 main health programs - (1) Healthcare for the Poor, (2) Orphans, Vulnerable & Disabled Children HealthCare and (3) HIV Prevention. Projects include Primary Healthcare medical centres, Eyehealth, Dental and oral healthcare, Elective surgery, Undernutrition, male circumcision and medical outreach camps.
For International NGOs and volunteers it's often impossible to work directly in Syria since the internal conflict began in March 2011. In a creative and collaborative response, DWW teamed up with British and European Syrian Diaspora medical volunteers to support the development of a new charity called Syria Relief, to deliver emergency food and medical aid to those affected inside Syria.
