Summer 2023 Donor Report

By Dr. Sharwan Saini | Founder and Executive Director

Dear Supporter of Save Kids Trust,

The summer months have brought several unique cases to the clinics. One major case was a Karan, a boy whose leg was broken after being hit by a motorcycle. In his case, Dr. Saini arranged for quick surgery (due to the lengthy time the leg was broken) and therapy afterwards. Karan and his family now report that he is walking and playing with friends. They are very grateful! Another case was a boy who cut his foot playing cricket. He knew right where to go and Dr. Saini was able to tend to his wound (stitches required) and help him heal properly. For more detail on both stories, and more, go to our website.

Dr. Saini also forwarded the front page of the local newspaper from April that was reporting on slums in Jaipur. Based on the data in this article, a survey in 2015 showed that Jaipur had the highest number of slums in the state of Rajasthan: 308 documented slums. Calculations now say the total slums in the state of Rajasthan are 1843. Dr. Saini shared that the government defines slums as NOT having proper water supply, electricity, and proper sanitation systems. The government also recognizes that the reason for the increase is that poor people are coming from villages and from other states to earn their daily wages to live. This migration from other villages and states breaks the government-supplied healthcare that these people theoretically have access to.

In India, one must be able to prove they are a resident of a state to gain access to services, including healthcare, provided by the state government. If a person doesn't have a residency card for the state they are in, medical treatment is denied. When someone in the slums has a baby, the birth is often unrecorded, so this child starts life without this important document. Also, many people migrate for work from their home village in one state to a city in a different state. In both situations, people are denied medical care. This is one of the factors that perpetuates the cycle of poverty.

This is also one of the reasons why Save Kids Trust is so effective. They treat every person who comes to them regardless of papers, religious beliefs, or financial status. Often, these people can donate a small portion of the cost of treatment. Always, it is the generosity of SKT donors who created an avenue to help. We thank you for your continued support.

Sincerely,

Dr. Sharwan Saini and the SKT Team
