SHOSHANA MEDICAL PROJECTS AT KADAVAKUDURU AND CHINA GANJAM VILLAGES
Martha's first visit to the Shoshana Medical project located in the Yanadi colony of Chinaganjam village.
I am putting up a few pics from her visit.
Shoshana Primary health centre was started in this area to give awareness about personal hygiene and health issues besides giving basic medication for the people here.
This is mainly a tribal community with main occupation as sewage workers, fishermen , coolies and rickshaw pullers. Open defecation due to lack of sufficient water and domesticating pigs and goats at home causing unhygienic surroundings is mainly leading to health problems and maintaining their waste water by digging pits in the backyard attracting mosquitoes is also making them sick.
