Save Kids Trust has had an eventful fall. We have enhanced our menstruation clinics with the addition of ‘teams’ of young women from the same neighborhoods bonding together to support one another. Each team has one lead who helps guide & clarify and this makes the clinics even more effective at educating young women and giving them a safe forum to ask questions.
The daily activity of the clinics, including the street pop-up clinics, have seen several unique cases. There were multiple cases where prior treatment (or lack of treatment) resulted in incomplete healing and made the situation worse. Keeping wounds clean and correctly shielded from germs is hard in the slum areas. The doctors teach about and show wound care, even to the point of patients returning to the clinics daily for proper wound dressings. There were also multiple work-related injuries where we assisted with assessment & treatment while providing support for the families since the income-earner was unable to work. Our dry-ration supplies continue to be crucial in numerous situations.
It is our hope in 2023 to open a new clinic for families who live farther from the center of Jaipur. We have a location identified and possible donors who would assist in securing the site. We are very hopeful that this will happen soon.
Meanwhile, Dr. Saini, our Executive Director in Jaipur, is planning his annual winter teaching & gift opportunities for the children of several informal housing areas! Look for these updated stories, and past stories, on our website as the new year rolls in.
Thank you for your continued support! As your gifts to SKT bless those in Jaipur, may we wish you many blessings this winter season.
