Deu's plight with pregnancy
Deu, 24, is a resident of village AmbaKa Vela (Shishvi Zone). This village fares low in terms of health facilities for its residents and thus Seva Mandir started the immunization camp which caters to the pregnant women and the children.
Deu came to the immunization camp during her second pregnancy and during the checkups it was revealed that her hemoglobin level was very low and she was anemic. The immunization team advised her to consult a doctor immediately as otherwise it would prove to be dangerous for her as well as the child. However, she did not give importance to the advice and never went to the doctor.
On her second visit to the camp, the team again asked her to consult a doctor and also counseled her family members about the same. She was then taken to the hospital in ‘kurabad’ from where she was referred to the Udaipur Hospital. The woman delivered in her 7th month and she was put on drip as her condition was poor. She gave birth to a still born child but the doctors were able to save her life. She had become very weak after the delivery but has gradually regained her strength.
The immunization team’s timely advice and appropriate counseling saved her life and this experience has also proved to be a learning experience for Deu for her future pregnancy.
At present, these camps reach out to over 1700 women pregnant women and 3500 children every in remote villages of Districts of South Rajasthan. This would have not been possible without your constant encouragement and support.
Also, I would take this opportunity to share with you that Bonus day is round the corner on 16th September from 9 AM EDT. The donations made on bonus day will be matched up to 30%. That means we would be able to expand further and hence would appeal to you to support us on 16th September.
We would love to hear from you on your side of thoughts and to know why you would be interested to be associated with the cause. Please do reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
