“My child is only of one and a half months old. I have come to Seva Mandir’s immunization camp to get the first course. We used to face a lot problem before these Seva Mandir immunization camps. We had to walk a lot to go to immunization camps and it was very tough for the pregnant ladies. Now, Seva Mandir health workers come to our village and they have also arranged emergency vehicle for us. Now all the information about government health schemes comes to us through Seva Mandir,” says Geeta from Girwa block.
On the 4th of every month, Seva Mandir holds an immunization camp in a small village in Girwa Block. The camp is very well attended by pregnant women and mothers with young children. They know they can count on the regular attendance of Seva Mandir-trained medical staff who administers inoculations and antenatal care competently and hygienically. Every year, Seva Mandir holds immunization camps in over 100 villages in a program that poverty researchers and M.I.T. Professors Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo have called “the most impressive we have ever evaluated, and probably the one that has saved most lives.” (http://www.sevamandir.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Poor-Economics.pdf)
Seva Mandir provides training, medical equipment, stipends and supervision to over 323 Traditional Birth Attendants and 99 Balsakhis (Friends of Children)from our partner 152 villages in 2013. Together they reached out to 7,003 pregnant women.
Seva Mandir recently organized a training workshop of 4 days at Kaya Training Centre from 4th to 7th May, 2014. More than 50 TBAs attended this training. TBAs were given training on how to perform safe home delivery, about care and precautions during pregnancy.
