NEW ORLEANS FAITH HEALTH ALLIANCE
June 10, 2010
This is an amazing operation. It is the only clinic in the New Orleans area that serves exclusively the working uninsured. It does so only with donations, modest fees from the clients, and grants. NOFHA does not accept federal funds because it enrolls only people who are working and do not have health insurance. NOFHA emphasizes patient responsibility and helps the patient (and the health worker volunteers) realize the contribution spirituality and life style make to health. It is a beautiful example of the way health can should be offered in any country.
