Our way to help
What we do
We believe that access to safe and effective health care is not a privilege but a basic, inalienable human right
The Wu Project Inc. aims to bring safe and effective Chinese Traditional Medicine practices to medically underserved communities in remote rural regions of the globe by providing free education and training in the Barefoot Chinese Medicine system and related modalities of natural medicine.
HOW WE HELP
Utilizing a “barefoot acupuncture model” the Wu Project aims to teach local health care providers to lay health care workers, nurses, homeopaths, Ayurvedic doctors and conventional medical doctors in the principles and practices of Chinese traditional medicine and related modalities as complement their previous training. The Wu Project, Inc. works in advance with local leaders to assess the health needs, identify an appropriate cohort of health care providers and a suitable location to set up the temporary health training camp.
The Wu Project, Inc. provides necessary supplies Once the training camp is over, assists local health care providers in securing a reliable supply of essential material and equipment necessary to maintain continuity of services . By training local professionals and health care workers, The Wu Project, Inc. seeks to enable these remote communities to construct and develop their own self-sustaining health care institutions.
- Acupuncture, Moxibustion, Cupping, Gua sha, Acupressure, Tui Na, Qigong, Diet & Nutrition
- Acutonics & additional Sound Healing tools.
- Breath Work (yogic pranayama, abdominal breathing)
- Education in preventive health practices.
- Record keeping: accurate documentation of health history, assessments and treatments
The Wu Project, Inc. chooses to work primarily in poor, underserved communities in remote locations. Ideally, clinics will be established mid-sized villages with some rudimentary health care services already in place. Such villages are economic hubs for smaller nearby villages. This allows the clinic to efficiently serve the greatest number. The Wu Project team builds upon existing health care facilities or the event that there are none, will teach locals how to establish both fixed and mobile (to extend community outreach) health camps and provide the necessary resources.
The Wu Project uses a pre- and post- evaluation process for ongoing assessment of its programs. Wu Project team leaders test to determine what participants learned as well as participant satisfaction with the training. This process facilitates a continuous process of development and improvement of the curriculum.
Two master trainers, who have the capacity to teach 4 to 15 trainees, leading these expeditions. During the 10 day period, approximately 150 patients will receive health care services provided by trainers and trainees.
