MAGNA creates medical projects aimed at saving lives and alleviating suffering to those who are at risk. Conflicts and unstable political situation have a devastating influence on ordinary people – direct violence, forced evacuation, epidemics, famines and psychic trauma are the common consequences of all that, often accompanied by disrupted local health services.
At times of humanitarian crises, MAGNA restores hospitals and health centers, fights against epidemics, takes part in vaccination campaigns, carries emergency surgeries, operates nutrition centers, constructs wells and dry toilets. On long-term basis we treat patients with HIV/AIDS and provide therapeutic care for orphans and street children.
By integrating our programs with local and national systems, and through advocacy and research, MAGNA further ensures that short-term interventions become longterm solutions. MAGNA brings assistance either during the crisis itself through emergency interventions, or afterwards through rehabilitation and sustainable development programmes.
MAGNA has currently established its permanent missions in Cambodia, Kenya, Vietnam, DR Congo, South Sudan, Haiti, Myanmar and Nicaragua. Previously we had humanitarian mission at the time of tsunami in India.
