Dear friends

Wishing you a wonderful happy and healthy 2017.

This is the activity your generosity supports, providing health care to poor slum people in India. These interventions have a measurable impact on the healthcare available to people living in slums. Everything is being designed around the people’s health needs. There are many people suffering with different diseases without care they need. It only takes one donation to shift the course of a person’s health and your donation could be the one that changes everything.

 Prevention is better than cure

Most of the diseases are preventable, provided proper treatment, medicines and health awareness is extended to people.

Organized health camp for Mothers and Children in Agraharam slum. Health checkups conducted by gynecologist. Awareness created among mothers about the health care of their children, Immunization schedule and nutritious food. The children were administered Vitamin A drops.

 Twenty five years old Venkataratnamma with her child, attended health camp and awareness camp. As Venkataratnamma attended Health camp first time, her impact was obvious.

“I was surprised by the health care in camp. Doctor P.Prameelamma and nurses cordially conducted checkups to me, to my child and distributed medicines. By attending child health awareness meeting, I have learned many things about health care, importance of nutritious food and immunization schedule for my child” she says.

  Access to healthcare creates the opportunity for poor people to lead healthy lives and to build a promising future. Maximize the power of your donation by sharing this with your friends and family. Tell them about your donation, show them what a difference it has made and encourage them to join you in supporting our work.   

          The New Year is a time for reflection upon last year’s achievements and successes to plan more interventions in the year to come. We will share more reports of our successes and challenges in 2017.

 Thank you for your continued generosity and support,

With gratitude,

Vision care of people in slums & Villages

In India whose population lives predominantly in rural regions, accessibility and affordability of health care products and services, such as eye care, remains an issue.

We are implementing this program in slums of Srikalahasti and surrounding villages which are drought pone, backward area in chittoor district, Andhra Pradesh state, India

 Strategy: STEPS developed partnership with The Aloka VisionProgrammeinitiated and supported by ZEISS, aims to change the landscape of vision care in such areas through entrepreneurial network, technology, innovation, quality spectacles and raising awareness for the benefits of clear vision.

Local entrepreneurs are being trained in basic eye care, screening of people and dispensing of spectacles as well as in entrepreneurial skills. This opportunity helps locals to earn a livelihood. The Aloka entrepreneurs will be connected to an optometrist, who ensures high quality screening and service to the rural beneficiary. 

Training: Motivated local entrepreneurs were trained by ZEISS experts in screening people, dispensing spectacles and entrepreneurial skills. Technology: ZEISS technology solutions ensure smooth refraction and vision test, instant order placement, ophthalmological support and transparency over the entire value chain.

  Activities: STEPS Vision centre organize free eye camps and raising awareness for the benefits of clear vision. As per specifications quality spectacles are manufactured and supplied to peopleon nominal cost by ZEISS, Aloka Vision Program..

 Pullagura Ramanaiah, one of the beneficiaries belonging to Peddakannali village, India expressed that “.After vision check up by STEPS Vision care Centre and wearing spectacles, now I can read and do my regular work without difficulty.”
