42-year-old Sangeeta Pawar is a widow. She belongs to a very poor family, living with her two sons, in Thane, Maharashtra. She was working in Asha Mahila Santha as an out-reach worker where her monthly income was Rs. 4000. After the diagnosis of ovarian cancer she could not continue her job. She was very tense and troubled both psychologically and financially.
Thanks to the ICS interventions Sangeeta is a happy and motivated person today. She can continue her follow-up treatments and is no longer tense or frustrated.
The social worker and Director counselled her to continue with her treatment. ICS supported her financially for her chemotherapy and supplementary care. She was enrolled for the 6-month tailoring at the Rehab centre. She gets a stipend of Rs. 100 per day. She additionally gets monthly rations, free food, rent for her accommodation and general medicine reimbursement of Rs. 1000.
