VISIT TO SHOSHANA MEDICAL CENTRE, RAMAPURAM.


Last visit on our schedule for this year to one our medical centres near the beach.
It is medical help for the fishermen community.

Chirala Beach


The situations were worse when we first started in the year 2004 right after the Tsunami hit the coast areas of A.P.  Instead of one time help like giving out fishing nets etc people wanted to have a regular medical help in that area which was not available for them at that time.

Beach resorts came up and more tourists started coming to this area.
Now situations are better for the people with proper roads, electricity and housing from the government but medical wise they are still dependent on the medical project for basic medication since the area is far away from the town.

SHOSHANA MEDICAL CENTRE - WEAVERS COLONY, LOHIYAPURAM.

The handloom industry in India is an ancient cottage industry spread all over the country. This is  a source of livelihood for the millions directly or indirectly.


The weaving process starts with tying and dying, hand operated looms, foot pedals to weave a saree.


The main reason for setting up a medical project in this area is mainly because of the poor economic  conditions of the weavers and  the health problems they face like  high and low blood pressures, lung damage, arthritis, neck and shoulder pains, poor eye sight etc because of exposure to harmful raw materials for long hours, poor ventilation and poorly lit work spaces.

SPONSORING DIABETIC AND HYPERTENSION MEDICATION TO SOME PATIENTS AT SHOSHANA  MEDICAL PROJECTS.


Patients with diabetes are skipping their medications because they are expensive for them to afford. Since it is painless, they don't find any immediate need but underlying it would lead to other chronic diseases.

Same with hypertension many people are not aware that they have it.
Person with early stage hypertension has the risk of developing hypertension in future. Providing free B.P checkups helps them to understand their situation and see a doctor as soon as possible.

SHOSHANA SEWING CENTRES - NARASARAOPET, PEDANANDIPADU AND ANAPARTHI




Majority of these women are agricultural workers.

The women in these villages have no formal education and therefore no access to decent well paying jobs and vocational skills like sewing hold an important alternative.






The sewing instructor Mrs.Sivakumari is running a tailoring shop besides teaching the women and she has some of her former students as helpers in her shop and they work together and they share their profit so  women will have an opportunity  to have more practice before starting their own business at home.
