Alessandra is a 75 year old mother of two who is employed as a domestic worker. Alessandria and her children do not have health insurance and have been attending the clinic for about three years. She recently arrived to the clinic with chronic joint pain and was prescribed Diclofenac Sodium.

Alessandra explained she has felt a lot of relief since taking the medication. It has not irritated her stomach as other pain relief medicines have.

“I am very happy that the clinic is always here when we need them,” she said. “I could not afford treatment for myself or my children, if it wasn’t for you all, I am not sure what we would do. Thank you very much for this great support we receive through the dispensary.”
