Reena fights her disease and becomes a counselor for patients like her

Reena worked as a daily wage laborer. With her meager income, she worked very hard to make ends meet. Her life was completely shattered when she found out that she was suffering from a life-threatening disease.

She was diagnosed as HIV positive. She didn't know how she would survive and manage her illness and be able to work. She was being treated at the local BMC hospital where she received her medicines. She couldn't work regularly because she fell ill often. She had to stop working and with no answer to what her future was, she resigned herself to fate. Very soon the situation where she found it difficult to even get 2 meals every day. The doctors used to advise her to have a good diet so that medicines could work well. Unfortunately, she couldn't afford her two meals.

The Neptune Community Social Worker then contacted Reena to help her. During the first meeting, the social worker realized that she was very depressed and weak. She was in need of emotional support. She also lacked a proper diet, which could take care of her health.

Reena was then enrolled in the monthly Ration program of Neptune Foundation. She started receiving her monthly ration of dal, rice, wheat, sugar, oil, tea powder, pulses, protein powder, and vitamin supplements.

She began to get stronger. With her health getting better she became receptive to counseling. With regular counseling and better health condition, she regained her confidence. She decided to begin her life anew.

She reached out to other women like her affected by HIV. She wanted to help give them emotional support. The emotional and nutritional support from the Neptune Foundation gave her a new ray of hope in her life.

Program Description

Neptune Foundation runs a program to provide underprivileged HIV positive patients with adequate nutrition to help them withstand the strong medical treatment and help them through recovery.

One unit of donation to this program will support the monthly ration kit for one underprivileged HIV positive patient.

Neptune Foundation's outreach workers identify patients who need support from the government hospitals where they come for their Antiretroviral therapy (ART) treatment. The patients are treated at the BMC clinics where they receive medication as well. It is very important that people who are HIV+ must have good immunity and proper nutritional supplements are the best way to boost it.

Neptune Foundation works in collaboration with Vijay Krida Mandal an NGO which helps HIV+ patients from the lower strata of the economy with medications as well as works on creating awareness around HIV and AIDS. With their help, the Neptune Foundation identifies the needy people on ART and enrolls them into the monthly ration program.

This program was started with the aim to provide rations and protein supplements to HIV positive patients including HIV+ pregnant mothers. It has now grown to a Nutritional Supplement Support Programme for patients under ART Treatment.

The ration is generally brought from local shops and distributed during the monthly meeting, which patients attend at BMC Mulund Maternity Hospital premises.

The program is run with the philosophy that being HIV Positive is no reason to live a negative life.

They help patients who have been diagnosed positive to stop worrying about the essentials by providing them with a monthly ration kit. The ration kit contains

7 kgs of rice

7 kgs of wheat

2 kgs of tur dal

1 ltr cooking oil

1 kg tea

2 kgs of sugar

1 kg of moong dal

Along with this, a bottle of protein powder and monthly vitamins supplements are also given to the patients.

The program has so far reached out to 46 HIV positive couples. After providing monthly nutrition supplements there has been a definite increase in the weight and there is a general feeling of wellbeing.

The program also guides them towards empowerment so as to improve their economic condition as well as enrolls the members in Sanjay Gandhi Pension Scheme, Govt.of India.

When you donate to this program, you help patients affected with HIV get access to adequate nutrition and help their recovery.
