All patients who come to PDH must first relate their problems so that we can document them and come up with a solution. Our response to every appeal for help will therefore start with an interview in which we offer no discrimination or judgements. After having listened to such a problem - believe us they come in all shapes and sizes - we then proceed to nut out a solution. Often, before trying to solve such a predicament, we will further our investigation by visiting the patient's house or family, if they exist, in order to better appreciate the circumstances surrounding a patient's problems. PDH also concentrates its various humanitarian efforts in the following manners:
Nutritional and medical aid
PDH stores food and a range of medication that is given to those in need. A medical doctor visits once weekly, and for those cases requiring a doctor or specialist treatment, we send our patients to our network of contacts in Lomé.

AIDS care
PDH strives to provide psychological, social and medical support for those affected by HIV/AIDS. This includes children who are often left deprived as a result of their parent’s condition.

AIDS/HIV prevention
Poverty, ignorance and lack of education and information are the biggest contributing factors to the HIV epidemic. For this very reason we organise and carry out training and information workshops on HIV/SIDA.

Social assistance
People come to PDH with problems that are extremely varied in nature. Examples may include relationship problems, unwanted or unexpected pregnancies and financial troubles. PDH is often able to initiate much needed solutions to these problems simply as a result of counselling those involved.

Education for children
PDH currently has 64 children, most of them orphans, listed on a program that strives to pay for their school-fees and materials. We also monitor the children's progress both at home and school. On top of this, PDH is supporting 17 children through their apprenticeships in a variety of trades, from hairdressing through to mechanics.
