Homeless children experience many obstacles in obtaining healthcare in Antsirabe. Health is not free in Madagascar. For the children, there are even many additional barriers including a lack of knowledge on health risks and hygiene. They are more susceptible to certain diseases, having greater difficulty getting health care and are harder to treat than others, all because they lack a home. Mydirectcharity.org is providing the homeless children under its care with a regular doctor's and dentist's visit while also focussing on educating the children on health and hygiene.
