Twenty Five years old Pynsilang L.Mawnai, lived in village Nongkrem, 10 kms from kynrud PHC, west Khasi hills district, Meghalaya. Geographically, the village is very hard to reach, with extremely bad roads. Being a young member of the family, he is the only bread earner of his family and his family was completely dependent on him. Unfortunately, on 15th March, 2011, while returning back from work, he met with an accident and got severely injured on his right ear. His family lost all hope because he was bleeding heavily. The District Hospital in Mairang is about 37 kms away and it was very difficult to get any means of conveyance during night time. The local villagers encouraged his family members and took him to Kynrud PHC at 10:30 pm. The Ayush Doctor who is also the MO In-Charge stitched his ear. He was totally cured after 10 days and now he is as active as before, working happily; With a grin he says “I was very sad thinking that I will never be able to recover and will have to spend my whole life like this, but I am really thankful that my friends and family took me to Kynrud PHC. The Doctor and other staff are very caring and I felt like at home during the entire period I was in the Hospital. The other people of my village go to the PHC when they are ill, or when the women are pregnant and have the delivery schedule, but I was not sure whether, they would be able to cure my severely injured ear. But, I must say, that the staff are very dedicated and its really appreciable to see that they did my operation at the night also”.

3rd March, 2010, Village: Kushwedia, Block: Jamtara. It was around 9 o’clock at night, a message of Diarrhoea spread like a wildfire in the village and the disease soon was declared endemic. The situation was looming with fear, agony and people were scared in the village. No sooner the information reached to the Deputy Commissioner, he immediately called the in-charge of MMU, Dr. R.D. Singh, which is run by Citizens Foundation and, ordered him to go to the village Kushwedia along with his team. Dr. R.D. Singh then asked the team to assemble, and sensitize them about the grim condition of the village. Dr. Singh’s team consisted of Co-ordinator, Counselor, ANM, X-Ray Technician, Pathologist, Pharmacist, Driver and Conductor. They reached the spot by 9:30 P.M. and inspected the village. About 40 patients were treated with immediate effect and those who were serious were sent to Jamtara hospital with the help of Mukhtaar ji and his helpers through hired vehicles. For convenient treatment in Sadar Hospital, Jamtara, few medicines were made available by Dr. B.K., Vice President and rest was purchased from market by MMU Coordinator. Dr. R. D. Singh and his assistants were beside the patients’ the whole night to look after them. During the treatment, very serious patients were continually administered with the following:

RL.
D N S.
N S.
Injection of Metromidagen.
Injection of Polybion.
Injection of Domperidon.
Injection of Avil.
Necessary Medicines.

To put an end to this endemic, bleaching powder was sprinkled at various places with the help of villagers where the incidence of contamination was thick. Certain necessary information was conveyed by the Counselor, Shree. Akhilesh Prasad:

Drink only boiled water.
Maintain Hygiene around house.
Regularly sprinkle bleaching powder.
Cover pitchers and water bearing containers, and drink ORS solution time-to-time.

Through this, Dr. R.D. Singh and his team of MMU, with their concerted effort made possible to overcome this epidemic and saved the life of villagers. Deputy Commissioner of Jamtara was appraised of the work of Citizens Foundation that runs MMU. The D.C. then praised the whole-hearted effort made by MMU and its Team.

A positive step for the reinforcement of VNHD Deodanr, under Podaiyahat P.H.C in Godda District of Jharkhand state was initiated.

Problem: – Not organizing VHND session according to ‘Micro-plan’ and the beneficiaries were deprived from accessing its services.

To put an end to this endemic, bleaching powder was sprinkled at various places with the help of villagers where the incidence of contamination was thick. Certain necessary information was conveyed by the Counselor, Shree. Akhilesh Prasad:

Reasons

Only one ANM was deputed to complete 18 VHND sessions.
Due to heavy work plan, ANM was unable to follow Micro-plan.
VHND sessions were widely spread and located in difficult geographical terrain.

Efforts made

ƒ. On 23rd December, 2010, a survey was conducted on AWC, Chorwad Sadak Tola, by the BCC/ Training Associate, which fell under the intervention area of Citizens Foundation for VHND session. It was found that the ANM was providing VHND Micro-plan services at a different centre (Chorwad Gadha Tola). After talking to ANM they identified the problem and informed MOIC over phone regarding the problem. Again on the same date, they organized one-on-one meeting with MOIC and discussed in detail about the problems. Along with the meeting, the Project Officer was advised to depute one extra ANM so that VHND sessions could not get disrupted and be organized in accordance with Micro plan. Again on 21st January, 2010 this issue was raised in Monthly Health Meeting.

Result/Effect

By 1st February, 2010 one additional ANM (Sunita Kumari) was deputed for HSC Deodanr. By deputing one additional ANM, all sessions were organized in tune with Micro-plan and the fall in number of deprived beneficiaries became visible. Other HSCs having same problem were indentified (eg. Pinjarhat, Session-20, Banjhi, Session-17, etc.). Also, it was ordered that additional ANM could be deputed to help other AWC but on the very date there will be no sessions carried out.

Paatar Singh Kuntia of Village-Bongoda, Panchayat-Kailisuta, Block- Musabani, District-East Singhbhum, is a seasonal farmer with mere 3.86 acre of land at his disposal for cultivation purpose, and stands helpless after the usual monsoon season because he solely depends on rain-fed agriculture by Traditional Method. Shree Kuntia was assisted by Citizens Foundation, through its ‘Water Harvesting, Irrigation, and Land Development Programme’, supported by MESO. Shree Paatar Singh Kuntia was trained on cultivation of rice and some vegetables, together with, construction of Lowland Well of dimension 25’x30’ in his land for irrigation. Though there was an initial hesitation for shifting from Traditional Method to Scientific Method of farming, after seeing its successful implementation Shree Kuntia himself adopted this new technique and started accruing benefits. This happened only after he was taken to another location for exposure and, his interaction with another farmer who too had adopted the Scientific Technique, Shree Kuntia could get convinced. Now, his harvest fetches him result even in the lean season. Earlier, Shree Kuntia could yield a paltry sum of Rs. 14,000 per monsoonal output. But through Proto-type Programme, his income hasincreased two-fold. Even the reduction in cost for sowing purpose was quite visible. Also, the unnecessary wait after every harvesting was substituted by vegetable cultivation, mainly Cash Crops (eg. Ginger, Turmeric etc.). Not only this, indirectly there was an employment generation, too. Shree Kuntia got no Market support and ‘Unpredictable Weather Conditions’ posed to be some challenging area but the advantage overshadowed the challenges. Today, he persuades and tries to motivate fellow farmers in and around his region, to adopt these techniques. Citizens Foundation is also planning to take up other useful scientific method of cultivation on a large scale for garnering more returns.
