Project Report | Feb 20, 2021
Our 110 Year Old Patient

By Krishnakuntala Banerji | Communication Manager

At the end of December our healthcare centre in Jamtala was visited by this wonderful and persevering centenarian. Monoara travelled about 4kms on a chilly winter morning to see our General Physician. She needed a check-up and medications.

With a century of difficulties, Monoara has certainly been through a lot. Like many women in the rural regions, she had to struggle against patriarchy, poverty and other social evils. It is probably this strength within her that we saw when she walked into our clinic, accompanied by a family member and supported only by her cane.

Our centre in Jamtala was set up four and a half years ago. Before that, the area didn’t have a proper medical facility. To think that Monoara, and other elderly patients like her, didn’t have access to medical care and had to travel long distances only to see a doctor is so very concerning. There are still many villages without medical services. The elderly residents there find it hard to get the most basic care that is often needed at a mature age.

Monoara lived most of life without a healthcare facility near her home but we are glad and grateful to have been able to make it easy for her to see a doctor now. Her visit inspired us to continue our work with even greater zeal and be thankful to have the support of our donors and funding partners whose contribution help us continue our mission.
