Touching and Improving More Lives

By Atul Lekhra | Manager Online Donor Communication

  • Dear Friend,

In Undithal, on the fourteenth of every month, Seva Mandir conducts an immunization camp, which is attended by many women who seek reliable health services for their children. These immunization camps are overseen by a nurse, as well as a Seva Mandir trained Traditional Birth Attendant (TBA) and Balsakhi (Child’s Friend). These community health workers counsel families on the importance of immunizations, as well as motivate women to come to camps to receive antenatal checkups and treatments for common illnesses. Seva Mandir’s TBAs and Balsakhis do far more than simply counsel though: they actively help. After a Balsakhi encountered the two month old infant, Mangi, who only weighed 1.5 kilograms, the Balsakhi not only helped the mother understand the importance of proper breastfeeding practices, but also encouraged the mother to have her child immunized. The mother was hesitant to attend the immunization camp because she thought she would have to travel too far to reach it, but after the Balsakhi explained that the camp was conducted in the village itself, the mother agreed to go.

Upon reaching the camp, the immunization team spoke at length with the mother to ensure she understood the importance of each shot, and the potentially deadly diseases each vaccine saves her child from. Our teams provide this type of pre-immunization counseling to help eliminate misconceptions related to immunizations.  As a result, families come to immunization camps more regularly.   

This all is only possible because Friends like you are regularly supporting our program.

Thank you so much for your help and support.

Regards

Atul Lekhra
