Help rural children get access to pediatric care

Impact

Every monthly donation helps children like Mukesh access pediatric care

Baby Mukesh was born with hydrocephalus. He lives with his parents in Panchdevla, Sirohi. His father Kalu Ram is a daily wage construction laborer. The parents could not get Mukesh the treatment he needed because of their financial constraints.

During a regular visit, a Global Hospital & Research Centre (GHRC) field worker identified him and advised his parents to bring him to a screening conducted near his village. Mukesh was selected for surgery and he was operated on successfully by Dr.Bhatia at Global Hospital.

The in-house pediatrician Dr. Dilip Gupta took the responsibility of taking care of Mukesh throughout his hospital stay and monitored his improvement. The presence of a pediatrician was instrumental in his treatment and Mukesh has recovered because of his care.

With this program works J Watumull Global Hospital & Research Centre (GHRC) offers free or subsidized pediatric treatment to poor children through outreach programs in villages.

Consultation with specialists and treatment is a free at J Watumull Global Hospital & Research Centre, Mt Abu, where scores of patients hailing from less privileged socio-economic backgrounds come for treatment.

Pediatrician Dr Pankaj Gupta runs the clinic, assisted by a nursing attendant

During the year April 2017 to March 2018, 6312 children visited the department of pediatrics. 199 patients were admitted as in-patients of which 60% of whom were treated for free as they hailed from poor families and another 8% were given large concessions on their treatment expense.

Eight-year-old Naina Kunwar was one such child who was helped because of donors like you.

Naina lives in Aarna, a village adopted by Global Hospital's Village Outreach Programme. She was brought into the casualty suffering from generalised tonic clonic seizures. Sensing the gravity of the situation, pediatrician Dr Pankaj Gupta admitted her to the Intensive Care Unit.

Naina's mother, a widow, works as a daily wage labor earning about Rs 5,000 a month. She has three children, Naina and her two school-going brothers.

It was impossible for her to afford medical care for Naina with her financial situation.

Investigations showed that Naina was suffering from meningitis, a brain fever that can take time to cure because the medicine has to penetrate deep into the brain. In Naina's case, it necessitated a hospital stay of over a month.

During this time, she also developed Steven Johnson's Syndrome, a skin disorder, a side effect of the seizure medicine, which head of the VOP and dermatologist Dr Kanak Srivastava treated.

Seeing Naina's financial situation, she was treated for free. She is now recovering gradually to be a healthy child.

Naina and many others like her have had access to medical care because of your support for this program.
