Medical Help to the Poor:
In 2018 the Sanjeevini Trust helped 125 poor patients with serious illnesses by helping them to get treatment in hospitals in Raichur, Ballery, and Bangalore. We helped poor people with spinal cord operations, stent insertions for heart blocks, kidney stone operations, cancer operations and follow-up from past accidents, illnesses and surgery. For example,
Ratnamma, age 24, had a spinal cord injury and could not walk or sit for a year. We took her for surgery and now she is walking and working in her home and in the fields.
This year The Sanjeevini Trust arranged two free eye check up and operation camps. In November 2018 more than 200 people were screened in this free eye check up camp and 23 people were selected for cataract surgery. Surgeries were held in Government hospital Manvi and food was provided to the patients and doctors by the Sanjeevini Trust. In July 2018 the Sanjeevini trust arranged a free eye check up camp in Government School Sirwar for students. 363 students got their eyes checked and 19 students had serious eye problems and were referred for treatment.
Cancer Awareness Program:
The Sanjeevini Trust arranged Cancer Awareness programs in Sirwar and surrounding villages. In each camp 150 to 200 people learned about cancer and its effect. The Sanjeevini Trust showed videos on cancer awareness by projecting the video on a large screen and using speakers. The videos are about how tobacco and alcohol causes cancer, and they educate women about breast cancer prevention and detection.
In the Sanjeevini Trust tailoring class women learn how to use sewing machines and to stitch clothes. These skilsl will help them in the way of income for their lives. In 2018, 18 women learned to use sewing machines and stitching.
