Dear Friends,

Greetings from Indian Dreams Foundation!

It is our pleasure to share the recent report of the project “WE CARE” that addresses the health & hygiene issues of the adolescent girls & women from flood-affected areas. That project not only targets the menstrual health of the girls & women, although it promotes the WASH practices among the school children by conducting awareness sessions and distributing hygiene kits free of cost to follow good hygiene practices.

Our team has interacted with villagers to get a deep understanding about their health & hygiene practices, especially interacted with a female member of the family and asked them to know the general practices they use in day to day activities to maintain good health. Many women told that they face a very tough situation to manage their Mahina (menstruation) during flood time. Water seems everywhere and we don’t go anywhere to manage the menstrual blood.

32 years old women named Roshni (name changed) mother of four children said, “It was such a horrible situation for all of us. Our house was overflowed with water and it was at the same level for about two months. My family members managed to live on the terrace for the entire flood duration. I got menstruation during those days and I had nothing with me to absorb the menstrual blood. I found the dirty cloth from somewhere and tied up to soak menstrual blood. I used the same cloth for continues for three days. As a resulted, I got red rashes near my vaginal area”.

WE CARE team has collected a few more stories from the field & will share them with you soon in the next reports.

Thank you for supporting the flood victims especially women & adolescent girls without your sponsorship it is very difficult for us to serve them and provide them with a dignified life.

We want your continued support for helping the affected women, girls & children.

Regards,

Team IDF

Hello Friends,

Greetings from Indian Dreams Foundation!

We are happy to share our progress report of disaster relief project “WE CARE” that helps to aware & educate adolescent girls and women of flood-affected areas on health & hygiene as well as aware school children on WASH practices and distributing stationery items to the children.

Good health & education is a valuable tool to empower the individual; however, education is every children’s right. Whereas, every year children from the many parts of the country face trouble in pursuing their education due to flooding. In many cases, the children are the most vulnerable human masse during the natural disasters. During natural calamities, children lost their stationeries, books, notebooks; toys etc. and many schools destroy.

We Care project keen to provide education & good health to the flood-affected children by providing education material like notebooks, stationery items, hygiene material so that they become empower and prepare for their future, most important they can continue their schools even after the flood.

During the awareness generation workshops, we interacted with many children who had dreams to continue their schools and hoping to live healthy lives. They told their stories in their way;

Ravi, eight years old said “I love to go to school daily. However, these days I am at home, my notebooks and books flew away in flooded water. I hope to bring them again and continue my school. Many of my friends lost their books in the same way”.

We started this project in few villages of Barabanki District, Uttar Pradesh State and conducted awareness workshops with girls, women & children. We hope to deliver our services this year also through your generous support.  

With the help of your grants, we can reach more school children and provide them with education material that will give them hope for their future.

Thank you for your support!

Hello Friends,

Greetings from Indian Dreams Foundation!

It is our pleasure to share our report on the progress of our disaster relief project “WE CARE” that addresses the health & hygiene issues of adolescent girls, women & children of the flood-affected areas. The project helps to educate & aware of the target groups towards their good health & hygiene during the flood & post-flood situation by organising awareness workshops & camps and distributing hygiene kits to them.

Every year, the monsoon rains and floods continue to wreak havoc in most parts of Uttar Pradesh bringing life to a standstill particularly in the rural areas. Many villages of Barabanki district face the devastating situation during monsoon.

However, this year also, continuous rains & flood is affecting many villages of Barabanki, where hundreds of locals from the villages are living in the relief camp as their homes and agricultural lands are entirely inundated due to floods. The situation is worse in Sundernagar, Betah, Parsawal, Hetmapur, Nauvanpurva and Balihariy villages where most of the areas have converted into a lake due to water entering continuously from River Ghaghra. The Ghaghra River is flowing above the danger mark because of heavy rains and lakhs of cusec of water being released from Nepal.

Whereas, Indian Dreams Foundation is dedicated to improving the condition of girls & women in flood-affected areas through personal interactions, awareness workshops and access them feminine hygiene material to stay healthy even in devastating situations.

WE CARE team interacted with women’s group of Hetmapur flood-affected village and collected heartbreaking stories from them, these are;

Kusuma Devi said “my house has partially collapsed a few days back due to heavy rains. We do not have any place left to sleep. My family is facing a huge problem. My adolescent daughters are facing taught time these days especially during periods. The project We Care has given us a big relief to manage our periods in such a situation”.

Thanks to the donors, supporters & well-wishers who are making this project success and helping the affected people for their well- being.

We want your continued support for helping the affected women, girls & children.        

Regards,

Dear Friends,

Greetings from Indian Dreams Foundation!

It is my pleasure to share our recent report on the progress of disaster relief project “WE CARE” which is dedicated to educate, sensitise and aware flood-affected population especially children, adolescent girls and women through counselling, awareness workshops, focus group discussion etc. 

In our previous reports, we have mentioned that we have conducted awareness session with school girls on the importance of menstrual hygiene management for their well-being. About 120 girls have participated and received the hygiene kits. Along with this, we have conducted WASH workshop for all school children and realised them the importance of hygiene practices.

During the awareness workshop at the flood-affected village, we met with a young woman Pooja who is twenty-six years old and has three children. The flood divested her badly, and she lost all her hopes for the better future. She is a single earner for her family, as she lost her husband due to lack of treatment; her husband was suffering from dengue fever, and he was not treated properly due to weak economic condition and inaccessibility of therapy in flood-affected areas. She has a responsibility of all his three children; she struggles a lot to manage meal for them.

She described that sanitation facilities were limited and they are practising open defecation which further contaminates water sources, exacerbating the risk of transmission of water-borne diseases. She mentioned "I afraid to go outside for nature calls; it becomes tougher for me when I get my monthly periods. I use cloths to manage my period blood and reuse it until torn”.

When our team asked her regarding what is menstruation & sanitary pad? She replied “I don’t know about menstruation, I think it’s a curse and god is punishing me. Sanitary Pad! What is this and how it looks like? I have not seen it before”.

Our team described the scientific phenomena behind menstruation and why Menstrual Hygiene is vital for every woman. The team provided her hygiene kits to manage her periods and transfer the same knowledge to her elder daughter to stay fit & healthy. She was happy to find sanitary pads and eager to use it during her next periods.     

Our continuous efforts to improve the lives of flood-affected adolescent girls and women are showing the positive impacts on their health. 

 

Do contribute to help us for the cause that can change the lives of the girls and women of the flood-affected areas.

  Thanks
