Greetings from Bangalore Baptist Hospital Society.
Thank you for every generous donation you make; you are helping us make a difference in the lives of the poor and vulnerable communities.
"I am refreshed and exuberant," rejoiced Ashwathamma who is one among many whom you have helped get access to affordable healthcare. In addition to suffering from migraine, Ashwathamma often felt listless and weary. "I work in a garden, watering the lawn. Often, my legs would wobble when I water for a long time," she explained to Dr. Shilpa when she visited our mobile clinic.
"Ashwathamma's haemoglobin was far below the accepted level. So we treated her giving her iron tablets. Her migraine issue was also addressed," says Dr. Shipa.
On a recent home visit to Ashwathamma's village, our healthcare worker noticed her back to work and full of energy. "Now I can water for a long time. So, that's good news. I can earn Rs.250 per day (US$3.50) per day. Along with my husband's earning, we can survive," she says with a smile.
Thank you once again for your support which helps people such as Ashwathamma to get healthcare support on time. Mostly, people who work on a daily wage are hesitant to visit a clinic or a hospital in the distance for fear of losing a day's salary. With your donation, Ashwathamma was able to get herself back again.
We look forward to continuing the journey of healing the pood with you.
