Sri Lanka

The Birthplace of RMF

Sri Lanka marks the birthplace of Real Medicine Foundation, the place where the first promise was made and the concept of “Friends Helping Friends Helping Friends” was born. Rural villages in Southern Sri Lanka still face challenges of coping with psychological trauma, poverty, and infectious disease outbreaks so Real Medicine’s clinic remains fully active and continues to grow. Initially established after the tsunami to serve one community of 400, the Real Medicine Clinic now provides free health care access to over 4,000 people in five impoverished villages. A number of successful initiatives have grown out of RMF’s Tsunami relief efforts, addressing education and school support, medical support of individual children, healthcare education and outreach and community and vocational support.
