 Pics from Shoshana Sewing Project - Swarna


Entire India is panic with the Corona cases.

Lot of choas here with the corona cases. Cases are growing rapidly day by day. There is all over on the news that there is insufficient medical supplies to meet the needs of the patients. Government is out of control in providing the necessary supplies. This is the present situation here.

We at our medical projects - giving out Corona kit which has vitamins, dolo, sinarest, antibiotics etc. We have pulse oxymeters at the medical projects - The patients can check their oxygen saturation levels.





Hospitals are full with patients and everybody is rushing to the hospitals causing scarcity of beds and other supplies.  The nurses at our medical projects are suggesting patients  the necessary medicines which they could use at home isolating themselves unless the severity is more and is necessary to admit in a hospital.

 Facial masks donated by Help Organization.


 Our association with Help Organization- Germany for the past one year.  Charitable Organization working for the medical needs of the needy people all over the world. Eye and Cleft surgeries and sponsoring medical equipment to the needy countries.

We received protective equipment - Covid for Shoshana medical staff last year. It was quite helpful for us during the Covid times.

Recently we received a package of facial masks for our medical staff. 






On behalf of Shoshana we thank Help Organization for their support.

In future also we would like to work with them with the surgeries for the needy people here in India.

Corona cases are rising like crazy in India. Almost every household has corona patients. It is all over the news that there is scarcity of beds in hospitals, lack of oxygen supply, medication etc. Panic situation everywhere. Not because of Corona but many people are dying of fear. Lot of negativity is  spread about the disease. Hoping that the situation will come in control in coming weeks. With basic awareness about the disease and by following few precautions we could safely come of the disease.

Lately there is a sudden rise of Corona positive cases all over the country. Some parts are partially lock down again and here in our Telugu states, Telangana and Andhra pradesh schools and colleges are temporarily closed because of the rise of cases in educational institutions.

Vaccination process started. Here Covaxin and Covishield are two types of vaccines given out to the people. The elderly people are at more risk so they are given first.

From our medical projects, we are giving out vitamins, sanitizers to the needy people besides the regular medications. Taking proper precautions in trying to control the spread of the virus.

Sharing the pics from Shoshana Sewing Project - Nagaralu - Guntur

One of the most Covid effected sewing project. Majority of the women got affected and luckily everyone recovered. Slowly the situations are changing here and the people are getting used to the new normal and all the projects of Shoshana are running normally again.  New women are coming to join the free tailoring classes and here is the new group of women at Shoshana sewing project - Nagaralu.



                                           Mrs. Vasantha(Instructor) with the new group of women

These women are from the surrounding areas of Nagaralu. Most of them are housewives and eager to start their own tailor shops at home. Having a low education background, only tailoring course seems to be a good opportunity for them to have an income source for their self help as well as they could support the family.

Sharing a story of one of the beneficiaries of Shoshana


Anitha, one of the former students of Shoshana sewing centre, Vijayawada. Her husband was a tailor . After finishing her free sewing class at Shoshana, she joined her husband in running the tailor shop at home. She has 2 boys and elderly in-laws to look after. 

Unfortunately her husband had a brain stroke and paralysed partially. He couldn't work .The family responsibility is on her now. She also was detected with cancer and she is undergoing treatment now. With the family responsibility and growing medical expenses, she is in debts. 

Besides having her regular sewing machine she requested for a zigzag machine, with which she could earn some extra income. Recently Shoshana provided her with a zigzag machine.

Heartful thanks to all the donors who made it possible to help a needy women in not only giving a free sewing class but also helping her in running her family at this difficult time.

Shoshana Sewing Centre, Pedanandipadu



Present group of women for sewing class at Shoshana sewing project - Pedanandipadu village



Started last year - now towards the end of the course. Blouse stitching usually taught at the end of the course.  The women after they start working on their own, they could earn 150 to 200 rupees per piece if they are good in making models.


Many people lost their work during the lockdown and there is still decrease in man power in many factories, companies etc due to Corona. 

The sewing course has been a good  source of income for these needy women especially during these difficult times where they couldn't find any other work.

Shoshana Medical Project - Dasaripalem - Guntur 

Dasaripalem is one of the remote areas in Guntur. Large area with more than a thousand families mostly with backward communities like daily workers and agricultural labourers. Shoshana started the medical help at Dasaripalem along with a local Ngo who is working for children's education.




Shoshana is providing basic medication along with free Blood pressure checkups under the supervision of a trained nurse. Since the area is far away from the city, without proper roads and transport facility, having a first aid centre is very helpful for the people. In my last visit, came across women who are in need of diabetic check ups and medication.




During the lockdown time also the medical centre was open to the people who are in need of help.


Thankful to all the donors for keeping faith in our work and have been supporting the needy people all these years.
