Living and working in the midst of the pollution of garbage dumps is dangerous and life threatening. The trash picker families are often fearful of medical personnel and will not seek medical attention even if they are extremely ill.
XSProject helps by educating the community and offering simple annual check-ups. When more medical attention is needed, we partner with Lestari Women and Children’s Hospital to make sure the individual receives necessary treatment. With donations, XSProject is able to pay the medical, dental and vision costs for the trash picker community.
