We had stopped our last report mentioning this family....

A recap

A family completely lost hope and is terminally ill. Sundaran 65 years old, a cancer patient lives with this wife who is also suffering from different ailments.  Sundaran has been seeking treatment for cancer for many years.  The couple’s only son- Sajeevan (35) is a hemophilia patient who can never be cured.  Sajeevan will not be able to do any work physically.  Every two months he needs a blood transfusion done.  The cost of an injection that he needs on a routine is around rupees 3,000 per day and needs 2 or 3 injections a day.

During the floods of 2018, there was a landslide near their house, and the Government Geological Department reported that it’s not safe to live there and the land was declared uninhabitable and they were asked to vacate as part of the report.

Although Rs 10 lakh was received through the Life mission project, it cost them Rs 10 lakh to buy 5 cents of land near to the hospital surrounding, facilitating medical reach for their son at the doorstep. Kindhearted people supported to put-up a 500 sq ft foundation, which was completed. The family does not have any kind of financial savings to complete the subsequent work.   Sundaran prays that his son gets a safe place to live after their death. In the current situation, the government medical support, rations, and food kits provided by the locals are helping them.

Now it’s our turn to support this family and we have agreed to take up this project, still, now we are unable to get any sponsor for this house, mainly due to the pandemic issues and corporates not functioning fully. It's our humble request to the GlobalGiving donors to help us raise funds for this project before the rainy season so that they can stay in a safe and comfortable place. Awaiting all your blessings, prayers, and God's grace to see this family in their new house. It will be our great pleasure to mention this project accomplished in our next quarterly report........

Even during this pandemic, we are happy to mention that the prayers are always answered to the needy. we have completed the house and have handed over the house. due to heavy rain and covid protocol, we could not have a formal inauguration. we request all your prayers for this family. 

Thanks for all your support and help.

Let us Shelter the homeless.

 1. Siddique aged 30 years from Kaniyambetta village, Wayanad district, Kerala lives with his wife and two children. Right from his childhood, he was a handicapped person. His left leg and right hand were weak due to Polio. His parents took medical help but were in vain. His right hand started to become stiff and he found it difficult to bend it like others. His left leg was so lean and weak that as he grew he had to limp while walking. Doctors said that this was because of polio, which had affected his left leg.

In 2007 he had an accident and injured his left hand too. Now he isn’t able to straighten his hand or bend it like others. He has been granted a disability certificate of 50% for his leg from the authorities. But now he is unable to do any hard work, has no job, and is unable to meet his daily expense to live. 

During the 2018 Kerala flood, his small house was destroyed and he had to move into a plastic shed, which was very fragile. He was not even covered in the Panchayat list for a housing rebuild program due to some issues in the ration card. The ward member referred this person and we visited his place to analyze the situation on the ground reality. It was pathetic to see him live like that and he was a BBA graduate and was making a small earning through his Computer skills and Photocopying print to his neighborhood. 

 The request of the house came to The Project Vision for which we asked help from many agencies. Muthoot M George Foundation came forward to support financially. Under the supervision of project vision, we laid the foundation during the Christmas month and completed the house by February to be handed over to Siddique. The Chairman’s son handed over the keys to the beneficiary to see tones of happiness in their eyes. It was a time to rejoice to have provided this shelter to the very deserving person.

 

2. During the Kerala flood 2018, Lally aged 56 lost her house which was damaged by the landslide and as the walls got damaged, the entire house was tilted to one side. It looked like it might fall at any time.

When the staff of the life mission visited them after the flood for the need assessment, they found that the couple and their three children were not safe to live in a damaged house- immediately were forced to move to a different rented house. They were ordered to move out of this particular land since the Geological Department does not allow a house to be rebuilt at this place due to landslides. Looking at their pitiable condition Thomas a  resident of Meppadi, Wayanad district, Kerala, donated 5 cents of land to them at his panchayat. Since the head of the family could not find any work due to flood and all the things in the house had been destroyed by the landslide, as the house had tilted to a dangerous angle, for safety sake, the family had been sleeping out in the tarpaulin shed beside the damaged house. Exposure to weather and lack of food had greatly affected the family, especially the grown-up daughters who never had privacy and safety for their personal needs. Looking at the vulnerability of the daughters. Lally approached the Church Priest for having a house built for them to safeguard their daughters. 

As an immediate relief, through the church funds, provisions were provided along with clothes for the children. This initial assistance was of great help to the starving family. Looking at our interventions, the parish priest requested a house for this family which was not covered under the government list.

The Project vision initiated an appeal for this house and was granted support from Muthoot M George Foundation for a house to this family. Likewise, the foundation stone was laid during Christmas and was handed over on the same day as Siddique.This was a big support to the family to tide over the situation. If this relief measure was not undertaken, the plight of the family would have been extremely bad and could have raised news to be answered by all of us.

Sundaran 65 years old, a cancer patient lives with this wife who is also suffering from different ailments.  Sundaran has been seeking treatment for cancer for many years.  The couple’s only son- Sajeevan (35) is a hemophilia patient who can never be cured.  Sajeevan will not be able to do any work physically.  Every two months he needs a blood transfusion done.  The cost of an injection that he needs on a routine is around rupees 3,000 per day and needs 2 or 3 injections a day.

Need for a house for Ulahannan....
Need for a house for Ulahannan....

“Wayanad: Anguished over the alleged delay in receiving flood relief from the Kerala government, a 42-year-old man committed suicide in Wayanad district, police said on Tuesday. “

Kerala Floods: Kerala floods: After seeing the damaged house, the man ends life | Kochi News - Times of India

https://images.app.goo.gl/g6a3wJc67eMcTHwQ6

Ulahannan, aged 54, is disabled and can't work due to loss of cervical lordosis (Grade 1 anterolisthesis which does not permit him to work. He was a daily labor who used to earn his daily bread. a native of Padinjarathara Panchayath, residing at Konthamankalom Kunn living with his wife along with their 4 children. His elder son is disabled (orthopedic) and has twins pursuing their Plus two grades and the last child in her 1st standard. The entire family completely lost hope in life when a big tree fell right above their roof which was temporarily covered and built by his friends and neighboring people. He was among the hundreds who had lost their homes in the August 2019 floods due to a landslide. His home, built on a three-cent plot, had been damaged partially in 2018 floods and completely in the 2019 deluge.

Family members shared that their daily prayer is to find ways to have a shelter, which will not cost their lives while sleeping. They narrated an incident, which took place months back. After losing their poorly maintained house they got to live in a temporarily built house with the support of the villagers. One night the tree, which overshadows their house, fell right on to the top of the roof, which came collapsing the whole wall on to the ground. By God's grace and luck, no one was sleeping that night at that place. Since the father was not keeping well the family members were attending to his medical needs and care. It was a nightmare for them since that night. Their hopes of getting a house from the government have faded since the pandemic.

Project vision a project under Hope society has made many attempts to address these issues since the post floods in rehabilitation and providing permanent shelters. Due to a shortage of funds, we are unable to work on a larger scale. Likewise, we identify each deserving case and address their need and try to help the family get a new shelter. Hence we request the support and help from our GlobalGiving donors to help us build a house for this needy family.

During the last 3 months, we were able to hand over a house build for Julie, which was funded by Muthoot. 

Julie's family consists of her disabled son and her husband. The family has major financial issues and were in a rented house. The only son needs 24/7 assistance due to his disability. He can only walk with the support of his parents. Due to the child’s illness, they could not save money for a house due to treatment expenses. Overseeing their plight Muthoot a financial institution supported the project vision with funds to build a house for them. Which was completed and handed over on the 30th of October 2020.

Thanks for all the support and concern.

"Let Everyone Live"

Inauguration of Three Occasion
Inauguration of Three Occasion

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.”

– Earl Nightingale

This Pandemic also made some families cherish despite all adversity. we had started this project building houses for the families those who lost their house during the Kerala floods of 2018. The families were selected giving preferences who had been rejected by the government support due to certain criteria which were not applicable to qualify for government sanction. Project vision understood their difficulties in building a house for themselves and so decided to get help through the crowdfunding to realize their needs. It was very kind of each and everyone who had contributed towards this cause. Since the budget of each house was around half a million Indian rupees we had to take help from other groups to complete this project. Completing this project was a challenge due to the shortage of funds received. We had completed two houses which were handed over in the last three months. we did mention in our last report saying that we could be sharing details on the inauguration of these houses. We are so blessed to have a platform like this to have a chance to fulfill the dreams of deserving families.

The keys of the house built for Subaitha and her husband were handed over by Project Vision on the 8th of June 2020. Subaida's husband is a person who is a cornic patient, his illness was discussed in our earlier report. Project Vision selected the financially backward families, the elderly couple and the disabled people, and those not on the government housing list. The 500 to 600 sq ft house includes a living room cum dining, two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. Mrs. Thankamani, Block Standing Committee Chairperson  Maimuna, Kanyampatta 1st Standing Committee Chairperson Rashina, Vellamunda 6th Ward Member Shajini, Simi represented Project vision in the handing over ceremony. The Social distance and COVID regulation was followed while handing over the house.

 

Secondly, the house was build for Mary in Kochumalayil, a native of Ondayangawhich was handed over on the 29th of July 2020. Mary's house was part of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana. But due to financial constraints, the work could not be started. In such a situation, Project Vision provided Rs. 2.5 lakhs apart from the government grand for housing and undertook construction activities. The 650 sq ft house has a living room cum dining, two bedrooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The handing over was done by Municipal Councilor Jacob, Jayan, and Jaison who helped in constructing this house along with Simi from Project vision took part in the ceremony following the corona protocols.

 

Project Vision, Helping online learning aid facility to the children's.

With the introduction of online classes in the context of COVID-19, many students were finding it difficult to continue their studies. In such a situation, Project Vision becomes a pillar of support. LED TV's were distributed to about 30 students in Kaniyampatta panchayath for them to attend online classes from their homes. Rasheena, the chairperson of the Kaniyampatta Welfare Standing Committee, brought to the attention of Project Vision such a plight of students. The 30 students were selected based on a survey of about 200 students. The function was inaugurated on July 11th 2020, by Kaniyampatta Grama Panchayat President Binu at the Kaniyampatta Panchayat Office. The function was attended by Kaniyampatta Grama Panchayat Vice President Basheer, Welfare Standing Committee Chairperson Rasheena. Coordinator Simi distributed TVs on behalf of Project Vision.

Concluding a note of thanks to all the donors for having supported the cause and making a difference in the lives of many people. Your contributions can give many more houses to awaiting such mary and subaitha.......

Our intervention "CORONACARE BENGALURU

CORONACARE BENGALURU

INTRODUCTION - GLOBAL SCENARIO

According to the Secretary General of United Nations, the world has not seen any bigger crises than it is going though now in its 75 years of existence. I think this would be the view of most countries that are fighting the virus - this would be the most impactful incident in their countries history. India Prime Minister Mr Modi said that it is like a World War III situation. Of course, the numbers may vary from country to country. 

INDIAN SITUATION 

India was very fortunate not to be affected soon after the virus broke loose in China, which is India’s neighboring country. In fact India had only three cases for almost two months time. They were all treated and cured. But the situation is getting out of hand. since one week as we see a surge of cases. 

But of late, India has seen an exponential growth in the number of cases. India is one of the top five countries in the world now with about 67000+ cases and 2206 deaths and as many as 20,917 have been cured.

Some of the statistical predictions about the Indian Covid 19 situation is really horrifying. 

Dr Ramanan Laxminarayan, director of the US-based Centre for Disease Dynamics, Economics and Policy, has predicted that India could end up having 300-500 million cases in India, that too by July. 

 

BANGALORE SITUATION

Thus we are confronted with a dangerous situation and glaring at an explosive situation. Karnataka has more than 862 cases now. There has been 31 deaths already. Despite the lockdown the cases are on the increase.

 

INDIAN SOCIO ECONOMIC SITUATION

India with 1.3 billion population faces a huge crises of health and basic human needs. About 30% of people are below the poverty line. 37% of people live in single room houses, with no possibility of physical distancing. With less education, many awareness programs don't reach the masses. India spends only 1.28% of its GDP on health. Thus the health systems are very vulnerable. We have less than 40,000 ventilators in the whole country to take care of critical cases. Considering all these factors India is facing a huge task ahead of it. Indian socio economic and health indicators can take a huge dip with these crises. The cost can be very high especially for the vulnerable sections of the society - the poor and the marginalised. 

 

RESTRICTIONS AND FALL OUT FOR THE POOR 

Government of India is adapting WHO suggestions to lock down the affixed areas of the country. Parliament is closed and so is the Supreme Court of India for any physical appearances. Each State has come out with their directives. Prime Minister had taken the decision to shut down the whole country for about 6 weeks, to prevent the spread. This is later extended now till the 17th of May. 

 

IMPACT ON THE VULNERABLE SECTIONS OF THE SOCIETY 

With large sections of the Indian society still under poverty line, we have huge number of people who are living on daily earnings. They will be the most affected in this crisis. India is home to one-third of the global slum population. For the hygiene and daily food is a huge challenge.

The socio economic fall out has been huge. India has witnessed huge misery being experienced by the socio economically weaker sections of the society. Millions of people who are migrants have fallen to a life without basic needs. The poorest of the poor are without anything. Even the middle has become affected very badly. Whatever resources they had have been spent and now they are looking for help.

As per this article named When Covid-19 enters India’s slums, the situation is very frightening:

https://m.hindustantimes.com/analysis/when-covid-19-enters-india-s-slums/story-w44elXbCeYX2dE8K2qpnAP.html

“India is home to about one-third of the global slum population, with an average of one in six city residents living in slums where population densities vary between 277,136 persons per square kilometre (sq km) in Dharavi to 125,000 persons per sq km at the Rasolpoora slum in Hyderabad. Slums are an integral part of the city’s economy as that is where a majority of workers and domestic help stay.

Various authors have estimated that reproductive ratio (R naught) for Covid-19 is somewhere between two and three, and that it would be about 20% more in the case of India’s slum population. This means that the reproductive ratio of Covid-19 would range between 2.4 to 3.6 in Indian slums.

Apart from the health danger it poses, the economic crises are looming large in the air for most of them. Rural areas will have some stock of grains in every family as is the tradition in Indian rural areas, but the city population does not have anything to fall back on for support. 

 Listen to the experience of this Taxi Driver as shared by a certain Mr Ram Kumar in his twitter:

“The cab driver cried in front of me saying I was his first customer in the last 48 hours. He said his is expecting groceries today at least. This virus is going to hit us from so many ways that the people who depend on daily come are going to get hit the most. I gave the guy extra 500 rupees. Obviously its not a big deal for most of us which means we should do it more. He told me that he has been driving around for 70 kilometers since his last customer. Please pay your cab drivers, street vendors, etc. a little more. You might just be their last customer.” 

We must remember that the Taxi Driver is better off the middle class and the lower middle classes. There are many sections who would suffer much more. Even if they have the money, things may not be available. When it is available they may not have the money. People cannot just sit at home when the basic survival needs are not met. They will not be able to practice isolation or quarantine, when their family members are without food. 

 

OUR RESPONSE 

Project Vision is an initiative of the Hope Society working for disasters. Our initial reactions were to support the affected people in China. Through our contacts in Macau we were able to reach 10,000 masks to China. One of our staff travelled to Macau and delivered the masks. 

CORONACARE.LIFE

With the support from Billion Lives, we took the lead to create a digital platform for people to share their fears in a counseling session with the volunteers on this platform. The tech support came from Billion Lives, a tech company under the leadership of Mr. John Santhosh. The site is www.coronacare.life this platform was launched at Hyderabad in January. 

Find the details in 

https://indiancatholicmatters.org/worried-about-corona-virus-talk-to-coronacare-helpline/

There are four services available in this platform: 

  1. Anyone with fear or distress can talk to a Counselor. 
  2. Anyone with symptoms can consult a Doctor
  3. Any Doctor can get an expert opinion from a panel of doctors. 
  4. Any hospital can get an expert opinion as to how to get the hospital ready for responding to Covid 19 effectively. 

We have the facility in almost all world language including Chinese, Italian, Arabic, Spanish, German and French with of course many Indian languages.

This platform is serving to the needs of many people already. The use is expected to increase as cases increase. 

 

OUR EXPERTISE 

As Hope society, our expertise is in the field of socio economic rehabilitation. We have vast experience in disaster management having involved in working of tsunami in 2004 building houses and providing boats, North Karnataka floods in 2009, Nepal Earthquake in 2015 with extensive housing programs and floods in Kerala in 2018/19 with relief and rehabilitation like housing. Our focus has been relief in the initial stages and rehabilitation in the later stages. We have experienced staffs that are able to deliver the required services. 

 

OUR INTERVENTION SO FAR

We started with the intervention to support the people who were finding difficult to survive. We devised the idea of Survival Kits. Each kit consisted of 10 kgs of rice; 5 kilos of wheat flour two kilos of dal, one kilo of red lobby, one bathing soap and a washing soap. This cost Rs. 1000/kit

Our idea was to help people to survive during this time of break down. We set our goal on reaching the poorest of the poor. We focused on the people with disabilities, refugees, migrants, transgender, those affected by leprosy, HIV, etc. 

We have been able to reach out to 50,000 people so far, from 10000 families. We covered the whole of Bangalore working with various groups who had the contact of the community. 

 

SOCIO ECONOMIC SUPPORT - OUR PROPOSAL 

Corona has created lot of social and economic issues with vast number of people who are daily workers not getting enough of food supply. We needed to support the situation by ensuring regular essential food for the people. After about two month, as the families in the vulnerable sections of the society are unable to survive with their saved income and materials, we need to offer some service.

The need is unlimited. After having completed 10000 families, we plan for about 15,000 families more that can cover 75,000 people.

 

CONCLUSION

A city like Bangalore with 10 million populations will need support for the most vulnerable groups. Whatever arrangements done by the government may not be sufficient to deal with all these groups. Non Governmental Organisations who has a better contact with the public will be in a better position to meet those requirements. Thus we plan to provide whatever is possible to trace such groups and ensure that they are able to survive this situation.
