Provide nutrition supply for a person living with HIV/ AIDS

Impact

Durga is infected with HIV/AIDS. Her husband died of the same infection, leaving two children behind, of which one is also HIV infected. She lives with her mother and works as a coolie for daily wages. She is on the ART treatment and was very weak owing to her low CD4 count. Due to this she was unable to attend her work regularly.

During their routine visits, NMCT field staff found Durga and got to know about her dire situation. She was counseled by the NMCT and motivated to take ART medicines regularly. A health supplement 'Dabur Chawanprash' was also provided to her to recover faster. She is regularly monitored by the NMCT field staff and reported about her health status. Her CD4 count has also improved and now she is regularly going for her work.

Health problems for the poor could also make them lose their livelihood. Expensive treatments are often out of their budget with pressing daily needs and less income. Your donation can give a poor person another chance to live. You can donate with confidence because every program on our platform is GIVEASSURED.

Program Description

The program aims to provide healthy and dignified life to people living with HIV (PLHIV). They do it by helping to reduce poverty, discrimination and human rights violation and improving victim's self-confidence, health, economic status and social acceptance.

The field staff through regular field visits and personal interview identifies the most needy beneficiaries who need support. This project supports infected beneficiaries out of which 80% are from the BPL families. This is because poor often tend to get infectious diseases, which often makes them unable to work regularly due to physical weakness. Continuous illness also makes them lose most of their earnings on medical expenses. This in turn results in the acute poverty in the family.

NMCT provides the beneficiaries with health drinks to increase their CD 4 count (if less than 350). They also provide Manna Health Mix on doctor's recommendation. The NGO distributes these at their head office. Patients visit them once every three months and collect three packets of 600 grams each. Doing so, the patients save almost 600/month.

Native Medicare Charitable Trust

NMCT implements sustainable livelihood development program for remote tribes, care and support for the people and children infected/affected by HIV/AIDS, prevention of HIV/AIDS among industrial migrants, and childhood development through health and nutrition education. Around one thousand families infected by HIV/AIDS have been provided with care and support for treatment services, nutritional food supplements and health care activities in 8 blocks of Coimbatore district.

The health and nutrition education in Anamalai block covering school and community children, adolescents & women has impacted thousands of children, adolescents and women in practicing healthy lifestyle through regular nutritious food. The mission of the organisation is to have sustainable holistic development among the underserved.

During 1986-87 the founder of the organization was a student in the Bharathiar University doing studies on Ethnic Tribes and their traditional practices. The needs of the underserved community and desire to support them as a part of the society was his reason for joining the voluntary sector.

Mr. A. S. Sankaranayaranan, Director of NMCT, formerly a Professor at an Ayurvedic college, met tribal people during his research in the forest area. He found that the Tribes were selling their lands for meager amounts and so he decided to dissuade them by making them economically viable. NMCT also felt the necessity for empowering women and run programmes on childcare, health and hygiene for the needy.

In 2017, Native Medicare Charitable Trust was awarded the Credibility Assurance Team by the Credibility Assurance Team Certificate of Appreciation for Awesomeness and the Guide Star India by the Guide Star India Commitment to Transparency.
