 CDS-Shoshana Medical Centre - Vengal reddy nagar,Raavipadu

Raavipadu is an area on the outskirts of Narasaraopet town  beside the highway towards Hyderabad.

Vengal reddy nagar is moderately a big area with around 150 houses belonging to backward communities. Majority of the population are agricultural labourers. Both men and women work in fields and at building construction sites. Previously most of the children were school drops outs but for the last decade parents are sending their children to schools. 

Majority of the houses are Government built. Although people living in pucca houses, their is not much difference in their financial status. There are still many who are living in poverty. Many were out of work during the corona crisis but slowly the situation is getting better.

Shoshana under the supervision of the local society arranged a first aid centre in Raavipadu area in the year 2016 and giving out medical help with a regular nurse.

As we observed over the years there are many old people here who are in need of medical help. Since the area is around 7km away from the nearest hospital in town, Shoshana medical centre is quite useful for the people here especially for old people . Besides the basic medication, the med project is offering free B.P and blood sugar check ups.

Nurse Mrs. Bala sundari
Mrs. Martha  is supervising the projects and interacting with the staff through video calls and the people also are happy to often see her. Thanks to all the donors who made it possible to provide medical help for the people of Raavipadu.
