Most of the people we treat at EARTH MEDICINE, have been victims of violent terrorist attacks, torture or sexually abused. For this reason, we pay great attention to caring for our patients with great love, dedication and compassion.
Upon reaching safety land they arrive with a huge traumatic loads that affects their health in many ways. All this as result of having experienced violent events in their countries of origin or during the trip to safety across different borders.
