Nethravathi Project Report – 0/720/2019

More new adult patients have been added. Thanks to Your donations.

Again, we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone of our donors for their generosity and kindness which paved the way for Nethravathi Pain and Palliative care center to have additional patients and include a program for children.

In July, 2019, Aishwaryam Trust staff found a 76 year old male, Mr. Ramasamy, abandoned on the roadside near Arappalayam, Madurai. During rescue he was at the risk of severe dehydration, hence was admitted in NETHRAVATHI PAIN AND PALLIATIVE CARE CENTRE for further evaluation and treatment. He was given councelling along with continuous medical support to make him physically and mentally fit. He is now being treated by doctors.

In June, 2019, another female patient, Mrs. Devaki was found abandoned and rescued by Aishwaryam Trust. During rescue She was semi-conscious and at the risk of severe dehydration, hence was admitted in NETHRAVATHI PAIN AND PALLIATIVE CARE CENTRE for further evaluation and treatment. She was given continuous medical supprot to make her physically and mentally fit. The good news is her address was traced back and now she has been united with her family.

We will be remiss if we fail to acknowledge the strength and confidence your donation has brought into Nethravathi Pain and Palliative care center. The center is now able to expand its services to children in need of help. The center is planning to build another center for the children. The same donors who donated the land to start the center have donated another piece of for the childrens center to be constructed.

As the community gets to know the value this center has added to the society, the demand for care is increasing. The patients’ quality of life has increased and some of them limp back to normaly after a period of treatment and care. The center is pleased when the patients are able to walk out with confidence, filled with desire and cheerful mood to lead a normal life.

Your might recall the recent addition of a commercial grade washing machine to provide clean linens and clothes to these patients. Undoubtedly the installation of the washing machine, has increased the availability of clean clothes, beddings etc., to all patients. Staff is able to attend to the patients and spend quality time with them.

Similarly the oxygen conduits, recently provisioned for each patient next to their bed, oxygen delivered from a central repository, helps the staff to help a patient in need of oxygen without delay.

Dr. Balaguru, the chief doctor, said, “We are extremely grateful and delighted to see how Globalgiving donors have helped us to enhance the services and care provided to our patients. Regular donations from Globalgiving donors will enable our center to sustain existing services and extend to under privileged children in this area”.

Nethravathi Project Report – 12/25/2018

 

Merry Christmas to you all. Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays.

May you all have a successful and peaceful New Year.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone of our donors for their generosity and kindness which paved the way for Nethravathi Pain and Palliative care center to have additional patients and include a program for children.

As recent as 20th December, 2018, Aishwaryam Trust staff found a 70 year old lady, Mrs. Chellammal, abandoned and suffering in the cold on the roadside. They rescued her and treated her in Nethravathi Pain and Palliative care center. She suffered from severe malnutrition and dehydration. She is now being evaluated and treated by doctors. You can see Mrs. Chellammal before and after the treatment by Nethravathi Pain and Palliative care doctors.

Your donation has enabled the center to add a commercial grade washing machine to provide clean linens and clothes to these patients. With the installation of the newly acquired washing machine, everyone is now excited about the cleanliness and speed with which clean clothes, beddings etc., can be delivered to all patients.

In addition, the center now has provisioned oxygen conduits for each patient next to their bed, oxygen delivered from a central repository.   This helps the staff to immediately help a patient in need of oxygen without delay.

Dr. Balaguru, the chief doctor, said, “We are extremely grateful and delighted to see how GlobalGiving donors have helped us to enhance the services and care provided to our patients. Regular donations from GlobalGiving donors will enable our center to sustain existing services and extend to under privileged children in this area”.

With sincere heartfelt gratitude,

One of the patients at Aishwaryam Trust, 67 years old Mrs. Indirani said, “You have given me a reason to live and live pain free”. Her eyes were filled with gratitude and tears at the same time. 

Indirani knew she was talking to YOU, the donors, even though she may not know you individually. Indirani was abandoned by family members.  She is being treated for left hemiparasis and is undergoing regular physiotherapy.  Her muscle tone grade has improved to grade 3 from zero.

Your donation has helped Indirani like patients, Pandiamma, Chandra, Vijayam, Sivagnanam and many others who have been, in many cases, literally ditched by relatives, due to poverty or other circumstances. Many of these patients have diseases like Cancer, Piles, Diabetes etc. 

 Mrs. Jayalakshmi was abandoned by her family and she wanted to stand on her own legs. She worked as a housekeeper, but unfortunately fractured her neck and became bedridden and left untreated for a long time.  Now in the center she has been treated with care and is now able stand with walker.

Your donation has enabled the center to add a commercial grade washing machine to provide clean linens and clothes to these patients. Prior to this, Pandian, the washerman (dhobi) and his wife used to wash and dry all clothes, an arduous hard labor.  This delayed and sometimes hampered providing clean washed bedding to all patients regularly.  With the installation of the newly acquired washing machine, everyone is now excited about the cleanliness and speed with which clean clothes, beddings etc., can be delivered to all patients.

In addition, the center is working on provision oxygen conduits for each patient next to their bed, oxygen delivered from a central repository.   This helps the staff to immediately help a patient in need of oxygen without delay.

Dr. Balaguru, the chief doctor, said, “We are extremely grateful and delighted to see how Globalgiving donors have helped us to enhance the services and care provided to our patients. We are looking forward to expand our center to add additional beds and extend our services to under privileged children in this area”.
