Birth Attendants in the villages have been trained by Seva Mandir to conduct safe and aseptic deliveries. In addition, these attendants also spread awareness about the importance of complete immunization in the village. Read the story to find out how they are of additional help to these expecting mothers and little children...
In the last quarter from October to December 2007 we have been able to get over 1200 children completely immunized. Over 500 expecting mothers have also been immunized in over 600 immunization camps...
Sauli lives in village Badanga, Rajasthan in India:
Sauli lives with her husband Kamal Lal and two daughters in village Badanga. Kamal has migrated to Udaipur City (22 kms from his village) for wage-labor. Sauli stays at home to look after her daughters and works on her agriculture farm when needed.
Her elder daughter Pushpa is now three years old and Bharti is three months.
In Seva Mandir-run Immunization Camps Bharti has received three shots so far. When the camp started Pushpa’s immunization was incomplete and so Pushpa was given rest of the shots at Seva Mandir-run Camps. Sauli is very happy to be able to get her daughters
immunized because the Government health care facilities are quite far from her village.
Sauli says –“ I come to the Immunization Camps and all my other friends in the village also come to these camps for getting their children immunized. Earlier the Government Nurse used to come to our village. But she was very irregular and her visits were uncertain. I like Seva Mandir Camps. Because the camps
are regular and are held close to our homes.”
Kamala has witnessed her friend having convulsions. Her friend was not given the Tetanus shots when she was pregnant. The incident imprinted fear on Kamala's mind and so she wanted to stay safe. Kamal has got two shots for tetanus and she is happy....
Vardi would have to go to the city 35 kms away from her village to get her children immunized. And sometimes it did not take place due to no transporation or rains or so. The Government run Immunization camps are irregular in her village. It is now eaiser for her to get her children immunized in Seva Mandir run immunization camps.
