Health

As rightly said by the Buddha ‘the secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly’. Also the Goal No. 3 of United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) that aspires to ensure health and well-being for all. It also aims to achieve universal health coverage, and to provide access to safe and effective medicines and vaccines for all.

It is quite evident from the guidelines that we have to achieve Universal health at Global level. For that matter, a collaborative effort from people of different geography is the only way forward to achieve the aim.

Sewa International health initiatives ensure accessibility of healthcare services to unreached, free medicines, medical consultancy & medical diagnosis for the needy and poor. We also believe in self-sustenance and hence promote the idea of self training. We conduct various trainings for villagers and work hand in hand with government health departments to compliment their efforts. Our initiative to provide medical kits, menstruation training for girls and spreading awareness in collaboration with ANM, ASHA and Anganwadi workers is helping us manifold in attaining our health indicators. We conduct free health medical check-up camps at various locations across India and our Mobile medical vehicles are well equipped to provide medial consultancy, free medicines and diagnosis.

Some of Our Major Interventions in Health Domain

  • Medical Camps - Periodic free medical camps in the rural/tribal region to provide locals with free medicines and consultation from experienced doctors. Every year free medicals camps are being organised in Uttarakhand, Kutch, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Kerala, Tamil Nadu and North East region. We are also fortunate to conduct medical camps and serve pilgrims at Khumb in 2019.

  • Health, hygiene and WASH Awareness/Training - Our initiative of Kishori Samuh (girls adolescent groups) to educate young girls about menstrual hygiene, health and sanitation is successful at various locations India. Various awareness initiatives in association with ANM, ASHA and Anganwadi workers about preventive health care including family planning, pre/post natal health, communicable and other regional diseases.

  • Medical kit distribution - Free medical kit distribution and basic training on how and when to utilise them. Distribution of sanitation & toilet kit to kids at our project locations with basic necessities like comb, toothbrush, paste, nail-cutter etc, to promote good hygiene among the kids.
  • Mobile Medical Vehicles – Sole purpose of the mobile medical vehicle is to ensure accessibility of healthcare services to the unreached poor and needy people living in far places away from civil medical centres. Our vehicles in Uttarakhand, Kerala and Tamil Nadu provide free medicines, medical consultancy, diagnosis, referral to established government health centres. And of course, to spread awareness among locals on preventive measures and general hygiene.

  • Medical services during Disaster – Our dedicated pool of medical volunteers and paramedics always come forward at the time when the nation calls them for their duty; during disaster. Youth learning short term courses in healthcare like general duty assistant and health home aide at our Pradan Mantri Kaushal Kendras come handy during emergency situations. As a part of relief, we setup medical camps to treat patients. Counselling centres as rehabilitation like in case of kerala floods. Online webinar on how to stay healthy during COVID-19 situation amid lock-down period.

Sewa Aarogyam, our mobile medical van in Uttarakhand is an initiative to provide mobile medical health services to 250 villages of Rudraprayag and Chamoli that provide services 24 days in a month capturing different populations. We aim to target the population of almost 1,00,000 to bring substantial impact in the lives of as many as possible. The program is also useful in raising awareness about preventive health care including family planning, communicable and other diseases; using audiovisual aids and LED screens in the van, relevant educational films are shown in villages. Eventually, we are able to integrate patients into existing social services and health care systems through referrals.

Another novel initiative of Kishori Samuh (girls adolescent groups) has been formed to educate young girls about menstrual hygiene, health and sanitation.

Our healthcare interventions in Tripura include periodic free medical camps in the tribal area to provide the locals with free medicines and consultation from experienced doctors. Our initiative to involve local youth as informal health workers, named as Swasthya Sahyogi Mitras (SSM), to provide immediate assistance to the patients for day to day ailments has helped us achieve last mile coverage in tribal areas. It also helps us to spread awareness about the importance of good health, hygiene and sanitation.

In Kashi, apart from free medical camps for locals at various different locations, we have also started a nutrition program for the children at our tuition centre by distributing them with fruits and milk products to ensure they are healthy.

Our contribution towards Swachh Bharat initiative in building toilets across different states (Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka) is bringing smiles to girl child as they are now able to go to schools; people who used to defecate in the open, now have their personal toilets. An extension of this program is to sponsor sanitation/toilet kits with basic necessities like hand-wash, comb, toothbrush, paste, nail-cutter etc, to promote good hygiene among the kids.

One of our supported endeavours in partnership with local non-profit Sewa Bharathi Tamil Nadu (SBTN). This was started as a rehab activity post Chennai floods to provide healthcare facilities at the doorstep of the underprivileged affected during the floods. Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) was launched to provide healthcare to residents of identified slums in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. Another supported program in partnership with Swami Vivekananda Medical Mission is running in Kerala. Again, Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) was launched for the tribal and poor people in Wayanad, Kerala.

During the Kerala floods, a team of experienced physicians, assisted by paramedical team, provided medical services at over 1,000 relief camps. Patients were treated for common cold, fever, body ache, fungal infection and water borne diseases. Veterinary doctors provided immunization as a preventive measure to animals in the flood affected areas.

During the devastating cyclone Fani in Odisha, our team of volunteers were at ground to ensure the safety of people. Medical aid was provided to the victims of floods in association with Utkal Bipanna Sahayata Samiti in the remote villages of Remuna, Nilgiri and Sadar blocks of Baleswar district. Various health check-up camps were established. The patients were provided medicines, necessary consultation and precautions to be taken to avoid any ailment.
