Story of Seema: Post Pandemic

By Debadutta Dash | Secretary, Sukarya USA

Story of Seema

The Covid-19 pandemic impacted everyone, but the marginalized population received the maximum brunt. Besides the real threat of life due to the deadly virus, they also faced poverty and hunger. 

Seema, 30, lives in a slum pocket of Sonia Gandhi Camp, Delhi. Though poor, she somehow managed to live with her husband and one child in a small, rented house. Her husband worked as a laborer, and she used to be at home as she was pregnant. Her husband lost his job in the pandemic, and the entire family crumbled into hunger and starvation.

Having a better healthy diet and nutrition supplements became a challenge for Seema, especially when even the daily basic meals were complicated for them to arrange. The family was on the brink of collapse when the Sukarya team intervened.

On a regular follow-up visit, Sukarya’s Community health worker registered her into the program. Seema received the required antenatal care supports and services with food ration packs and nutrition supplements, which served as the lifeline for her family.

The continued antenatal care services and food supports from Sukarya rescued Seema from any possible risks during childbirth, and she delivered a baby at the end who was underweight. The Team Sukarya continuously extended the required services to the mother and child to better the situation. The mental health counseling from the team enabled her to cope with adverse life situations. 

Seema and her family have expressed their sincere gratitude to the Sukarya and donors for saving their lives.

Urban Slum Health Action Program, Delhi

Progress Report – July 20 to October 20, 2021 

During the reporting period project has achieved substantial progress. A total of 3010 targeted beneficiaries have been served through the Health Clinics, Medicine, pack of dry rations, and Nutritional Supplement distribution Camps, Counselling, Health Awareness Sessions, and Routine Immunizations.

Our team is constantly making efforts to recover the lost progress made in maternal-child health indicators during the peak of COVID-19 lockdowns due to the service interruption. The marginalized communities living in urban slums faced massive challenges of survival. Food security has become the major issue of concern. Most of the people remained jobless and there is no other means of livelihood.
