Impact

Every monthly donation helps women like Kokilaben have a safe pregnancy

Kokilaben, 23 was married at a young age and soon after was expecting her first child. Unfortunately, she was not healthy enough to carry a pregnancy to full term. She had multiple miscarriages, induced abortions and even lost a three- day old child. All this took a toll on her physical and mental health. Due to social pressures, she got pregnant again.

The Patient Support Group counseled led her to get treatment at Charutar Arogya Mandal hospital. With inpatient care for over 70 days through her pregnancy and access to blood transfusion at the critical time, she delivered a healthy child. Kokilaben is now enjoying the little joys of motherhood.

A little medical help can bring this joy to many women who suffer like Kokilaben.

Program Description

Charutar Arogya Mandal (CAM) works in rural areas of Gujarat helping women with high-risk pregnancies. The villages do not have proper maternal health care and it is difficult for patients to travel to the hospital due to lack of transportation. CAM works with Shree Krishna Hospital to provide quality care for safe deliveries in high-risk pregnancies.

The Patient Support Group (PSG) conducts background checks to determine the socioeconomic condition of the patient to ensure that the patients in need are getting the aid. CAM works with both fundraising and monitoring the treatment of the patients.

Donations received to this program used towards concessions or waivers given to pregnant women who have to undergo critical care during delivery. Many poverty-stricken women lose their lives not being able to afford the cost of high-risk pregnancies. Help in gifting a woman a safe pregnancy by donating to this program.

Program Update

For over 2 years now, in 450 of its beds located in the “Ashirward wards”, treatment has been made free. Admitted patients have to bear only the cost of pharmacy and consumables. While undergoing surgery, these patients spend only half to one third of the amount charged by other private Hospitals. Our own as well as government schemes are being implemented to provide succour to needy patients in terms of concession in treatment costs, which annually amounts to over Rs 26 crores which is supported by generous contributions from donors. It is only through the constant support and generosity of donors that we have been able to do the kind of work that benefits the community at large. We look forward to your continued support.

Story from the field

Rafyuddin Malek lives in Dantali village of Kheda district. A daily farm wager, he shoulders the burden of his parents, wife Shehnazbibi and 3 year old daughter Tamanna. Shehnazbibi experienced severe pain in the abdomen. Medicines from a local doctor did not help. The pain kept haunting her. As weeks passed by, her condition grew worrisome. Suddenly one day, at 27 weeks, she had severe abdominal cramps. She was initially taken to the Hospital in Changa but soon shifted in a semi-conscious state to Shree Krishna Hospital. After her condition stabilized, she gave birth to a baby girl (Karishma) through ‘C’ section. Born prematurely with a birth-weight of just 650 grams, Karishma was feeble. She struggled for life in the neonatal ICU, under the radiant heat warmer, with ventilator support, higher antibiotics, feeding management and supportive care. Karishma was at high risk of medical complications and the doctors explained that treatment would cost around Rs 4.25 lakhs. When he ran short of funds, Rafiyuddin explained to the Hospital staff that as he could no longer pay the bills, they would like to take Karishma home. After quizzing him at length regarding his family profile, it was concluded that his case was genuine. The Mandal decided to support Karishma’s treatment through internal resources and fund support from donors. After 89 days treatment, Karishma went home healthy and thriving. The family is indebted to the Hospital and fund support from donors. A life was saved.

Program Update

The Shree Krishna Hospital is located in a rural area, and since most of our patients are from villages and largely of insufficient means, the services of Shree Krishna Hospital are offered at subsidized rates.

The community shares a part of this burden with their donations. The constant support of the community has encouraged the hospital to institute an extensive freeship programme, enabling those with meager resources to obtain full or partial concession from treatment. The freeship programme draws its strength from generous donations received to serve this worthy cause.

Remember that your contribution is helping a pregnant woman to deliver safely.

Story from the field

Kapilaben Talpada is 20 years old and stays at Gorel village of Anand district, with her in-laws, husband and one & a half year old son. She is a housewife. Her husband Rajeshbhai & his father work in nearby farms as daily wagers, earning a meagre income. Both leave the house in the morning and return for lunch. After lunch, the father takes rest for some time, while Rajesh plays with his son before they return to work. For most of the day, Kapilaben takes care of her son and house hold routine. After completing her work in evenings, she sits and chats with neighbours.

After passage of about 8 months in her second pregnancy, one day, she began bleeding profusely. The family got alarmed and rushed her to a Hospital in Borsad. Considering her grave condition, the doctor hesitated to take the case due to non availability of equipment & ICU facility. He advised the family members to take her to Shree Krishna Hospital, Karamsad. Kapilaben was brought to the Trauma centre of Shree Krishna Hospital. The gynaecologist examined her and informed her family that considering her serious condition, a Caesarean operation would be essential. The treatment expense estimate was also provided.

Her husband met the hospital staff and explaining his economic condition, urged for help as it would be difficult for him to fully bear the treatment cost. The Mandal took up the responsibility of treating the mother at highly subsidized rates, with the help and support of donors like you. She delivered a male child and was admitted in the Surgical ICU, and shifted to the Gyneac ward after her condition stabilized. She was successfully treated for 6 days and discharged from the hospital in sound health.

We could save the precious life of a pregnant mother and an infant due to the helping hand of donors like you and Give India's other donors. But there are many such women in need of treatment. You can make a difference by reaching out to such less-privileged patients.

The family members have expressed their sincere gratitude to you for your contribution.

We look forward to receiving your continued support for the treatment of such needy patients.

To make health-care affordable, for outdoor consultations, we offer free registration and medical advice. For indoor patients (excluding ICU and Emergency services), since April 2017, 450 of the Hospital beds placed in the 'Aashirwad' wards have been earmarked to provide free services, where the Mandal bears the cost of stay, food, services provided by Doctors & Nurses, Surgical Procedures, Ward procedures, Radiology and Laboratory investigations, while patients have to bear only the cost of medicines and consumables related to the treatment. BPL patients and patients under our Jan Arogya Yojana get a few additional rebates. At Shree Krishna Hospital, we follow a philosophy of providing professional and quality health care services uniformly to all patients, irrespective of their economic status, region, religion or caste. The annual burden to the Hospital towards the concessions and free-ships given to patients amounts to more than Rs. 20 crores annually mainly including needy patients with Cancer, Cardiac diseases, malnourished women undergoing delivery, prematurely born and underweight neonates and road traffic accident victims. Many of the patients treated would not have pursued treatment for their life-threatening ailments, had they not been supported by the Mandal and its Donors.
