Swasthgram in association with Sahyog Care organized a medical camp in Biswara village on where we screened 150 villagers. Here we would like to share a case study of 1 villager out of all that is Ahilya Devi.
Ahilya Devi is a wonderful person with kind and helping attitude. She is full of life. Unfortunately she is a sufferer of various diseases. While running this Camp she told us that she has got many symptoms but she actually doesn’t know what she suffers from and how severe is the problem , the reason being unavailability of good clinical laboratories at affordable prices in rural and remote areas. She and her family do not have enough income that they can go for medical checkup. Doctors in the rural and slum areas are not able to provide proper treatment because they cannot prescribe any medicine without diagnostic report of a patient.
Our results of camp showed very scary and worrying state of Ahilya Devi. Her kidney and liver are not in good condition. Her Husband too was at high risk of diabetes.
As a part of this camp, Swasthgram team counseled adequately Ahilya Devi as well as her family on lifestyle patterns, eating habits, preventive measures and precautions to be taken and advised them that they should immediately refer physician and should opt suitable medication.
However, before this camp Ahilya Devi was living her life completely unconsciously without any preventive measures and was growing weaker day by day.
After our counseling, Ahilya Devi started her care in a right way with addition of nutritious food, she also started following up with Doctors & changed her lifestyle to some extent by eating healthy food at right time. She mentioned that “khoon ki janch to pehle bhi karwayi hai par iss bar camp mei janch ka sahi matlab aur avashyakta samajh aayi hai”
We are glad that Swasthgram is saving lives of many needy people similar to Ahilya Devi through its immense hard working efforts and result – oriented initiatives.
