Malnutrition Camp for Women & Children
Sansthaan had arranged malnutrition camps for rural and under privileged families in Gondia district of Maharashtra. This initiative was quite challenging for us as it was not only our first project for social welfare but also involved multiple obstacles related to willingness of the family members to spare women (who were working as laborers) along with their children for the continuous duration of 21 days. It was quite difficult to convince family members specially men to make women and children dedicatedly available for whole 21 days under the strict guidance and monitoring of qualified Doctors and Nurses who were trained specially for this kind of camps as per WTO standards. This involved not only the preparation and arrangement of healthy food & diet but also engage children of different ages with special play area, games, toys, story books and personal involvement. Apart from these arrangements, our workers also had to take care of their daily earnings for their families as these women were not allowed to go to work. So, Sansthaan had to make provisions for daily wages for their family’s livelihood for these 21 days.
Patient Sou Priya Thul delivered male child on 3rd jan 2020 weighing 3kg 280gms. Patient was admitted on 2nd night by 12 midnight as she had severe pains. Though It was very cold in Nagpur, she delivered normally around 6 am at Daga hospital. Her 1st delivery was also done under Vatsalyam project in june 2017.At birth her first baby's weight was 2.75 kg. This is a great achievement that even being her second delivery the baby weight is more. We are thankful to Shri. Sandeep Deshmukh ji onbehalf of team Vatsalyam and JAVS for sponsoring this patient.
Hygine & Health for Adivasis in extremely rural area (Itawahi village)
During one of the visit to this village, our Sansthaan’s members realized that the families of this village are still deprived of the basic need of Hygine, specially toilets. This was also the time during which Swatch Bharath Abhiyaan (SBA) was just picking up. It was then the Sansthaan got inspiration from this abhiyaan and decided to do something for this backwardly village. This was quite a challenging project to undertake as it involved close interaction with families, Sarpanch of the village and taking all the necessary permissions to get this project started. It was finally planned to construct 20 toilets for all the families of the villagers. The construction took around 1.5 to 2 months duration to complete the whole project which involved rigorous manual effort, time and finance from the co-workers of the Sansthaan (with some doing daily up downs from Nagpur and some staying there in the village).
