This programme focuses on the improvement of livelihood of vulnerable groups specifically the orphans and vulnerable children, the elderly, and persons with disability. The devastating impact of hunger and malnutrition on health care cannot be overestimated. People whose bodies and immune systems have been weakened by hunger are far more likely to fall ill, far more likely to suffer serious or fatal complications when they do, and far less able to benefit from treatment. Medications are often less effective or difficult to take on an empty stomach; travel to clinics becomes impossible due to weakness; work time cannot be spared for medical visits. Hunger is particularly dangerous for people with consumptive diseases like AIDS and tuberculosis that significantly increase nutrient requirements and cause crippling loss of weight, strength, and energy.Symptomatic HIV patients require 20 to 30 percent more calories than HIV-negative people.It is obvious why RHD is providing medical outreach services.

Something pretty incredible happens when we get intentional about serving through volunteering. Through voluntary service, we can multiply our talents and abilities for even greater potential than we can even imagine.
