 Shoshana Medical Project - Dasaripalem, Guntur district.

Shoshana started working in partnership with a local society which has been doing many social activities for children and old people in Dasaripalem area . As a part of their activities, they approached Shoshana for setting up a medical project for the needy people in their area.  

Dasaripalem is a backward area with people who are mainly daily workers. Government allotted this area for backward communities. For many years these people were living off grid without any facilities like roads, water and electricity. Over the years they were provided with few facilities still there are no proper roads to go to this area.

In case of medical emergency reaching the nearest medical help is also a problem for them so after observing the need, Shoshana started giving medical help in this area from the year 2018 with a regular nurse. Shoshana's medical project turned out to be very useful for the people in that area especially old people who can't afford to reach the nearest medical help.

The nurse here is Mrs. Swathi who has a three year degree in nursing and has the experience of working in a private hospital before.  For the last one year she has been taking care of the medical project and happy to help the needy here.

This pic showing our M.D Mrs. Martha, who was talking to the nurse Mrs. Swathi. She couldn't come to India for the last two years due to the Covid situation but she is very much in touch with all the projects virtually.

 Shoshana Sewing Project - Chilakaluripet

Summer slowly started fading away. Had first rains at a few places already. Waiting for the monsoon to come soon after the scorching heat. All the sewing projects had a brief  summer break and  resumed their work except for  the medical projects which are open all year long.

Chilakaluripet is surrounded with hilly areas  with lot of  stone crushing plants and pulses and cereal fields. The women who join the sewing class mostly come from agricultural background or daily workers in these stone crushing plants.

Here are a few pics from the Shoshana sewing project, Chilakaluripet. The present group is going to have their sewing training certificate very soon.The present group started a year back, due to Covid, the instructor as well as all the women got effected so the course duration took more than the usual time.

The instructor Mrs. Sumathi is one of our best instructors so far. She is a hands on trainer and see that each women makes the best use of the class. She has a well organized schedule for the sewing class.  Each one of the student has a proper map with miniature samples along with measurements  which they keep with them as a reference. Simultaneously they do the actual models which they use it for themselves or disturb to the needy people around their area.

Interested women after finishing the sewing class,  join the embroidery and painting class which is also available at the centre.
