Visit to Shoshana Medical centre, Burlavaripalem.

Visit pics from 6/10.

Visited Shoshana Medical Centre, Burlavaripalem along with Mrs.Martha. Morning we visited Swarna village and evening we went to Burlavaripalem village which is around 10 kms from Chirala town.

Main occupation of the people here is agriculture and the village is surrounded with fields. Village is a far away from the town and there is no medical facility here like a health centre or a medical shop. People have to come all the way to Chirala for medicines. Ofcourse for major health problems they come  either to the Government hospital in Chirala or there are many private hospitals in Chirala.

On the request of the villagers, Shoshana started  first aid help in this village in Jan-15.
Mariamma is the nurse. She is also working in one of the private hospitals in Chirala. She has 2 daughters and one son.

Mariamma's husband was a daily workers. Unfortunately he was detected with cancer last year. He was on radiation and chemotherapy. Because of his sickness he is unable to work so Mariamma is taking care of the family. She is  in difficult situation, paying for his medication and running the family and he too is in need of medical help.
