Living life along with a disease is like a curse for poor people as it is very painful for the body and the mind as their financial condition gets poor and poor along with the increase in the time of the disease. Tuberculosis is such kind of disease which requires a lot of care and helathy foods. Poor people are unable to get these healthy nutritious foods in this time of corona pandemic as they are pretty expensive and eating them daily will surely increase the financial burden on their family as finding employment in this time is pretty difficult so what these people do is eat normal food which they can acquire and it leads to long lasting disease.
RSKS India saw this problem and is working for the poor Tuberculosis (MDR) patients from a long time. After the lockdown was imposed by the government due to the corona pandemic, RSKS India started distributing healthy and nutritious food to 25 poor Tuberculosis (MDR) patients every month and till now it has been five months and these food contained eggs, pulses, nutrella, fruits, etc. so that adequate amount of protiens, vitamins etc. can be reached to them. Along with this awareness program was also done with them in which social distancing, use of masks, importance of washing hands were the prime focus.
Tuberculosis (MDR) patients got improvement in their health condition after consuming this healthy diet of eggs, pulses, nutrella, furits etc. provided by RSKS India and also their was no financial burden on their families for buying this type of nutirtious food. Their family members got very happy while seeing the improvement in their health and also started following all the necessary information which RSKS India team members told them to fight against Covid-19.
An Beneficiry's STORY....
Sunita (Name Changed) a 30 year old woman is having 3 children and her husband is Tuberculosis (MDR) patient in the government hospital. Her husband worked as a daily labour before falling sick and after he was admitted to hospital, Sunita started to work in daily Labor in order to meet the daily expenses of the house and of the children. She used to visit the hospital daily in order to provide food to him but she was unable to provide healthy food everytime as her financial condition was very poor. From the supporting hand of RSKS India, her financial and mental load was reduced to lot of extent as RSKS India provided healthy and nutritious food to her husband every month by which the health condition of her husband started improving.
