Challenge

There is drought situation in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra in India and Sastur where our SPARSH hospital is also seriously affected by the same. The hospital is facing serious water crisis as the existing bore wells in the campus are not able to suffice the water needs of the hospital now.

Solution

The hospital and the mobile medical units have a huge influx of patients everyday. Around 450 patients approach through outpatient department every day along with 40 indoor patients who receive the health services daily. Support from individuals and companies towards cost of the tankers will help in providing quality services to the patients who visit the hospital and our mobile medical units during this drought situation

Long-Term Impact

1. Improvement in health indicators in the Osmanabad, one of the 100 poorest districts in India. 2. Significant reduction in number of infant, child & maternal deaths. 3. Increased awareness about HIV/AIDS and women -related cancer 4. Increased community demand for quality health services
