Dr Kiran visits Asha slum community Chanderpuri

Hi everyone, my visit to Chanderpuri slum was a day of mixed feelings, sadness at the terrible plight of malnourished girls, and joy that they felt valued and were given the best of care by the Asha team.

I did a health assessment of each of the young girls, and found a variety of health issues that I put them on treatment for.

They have all been coming for their daily food supplements. Some had TB, others had severe Iron Deficiency Anemia, Worms, and so on.

Most came from families suffering from extreme poverty due to complicated sets of circumstances.

They had a wonderful meal together arranged by Asha, following which I gave them gifts of clothes and shoes.

It is only because of your generosity that I am able to help them all. I am so very grateful.

How happy they were to receive clothes and shoes👇

Dr Kiran visits Mayapuri Slum Community

I had a wonderful day at the Mayapuri clinic today. I met with many malnourished girls and found that our Nurse Practitioner Shiny is taking excellent care of them. She has been regularly giving them, Iron and Folic Acid, Vitamin and Mineral supplements, D3, and she had also dewormed them all. They come regularly for their protein and calorie supplements. The ones who have been on the program for a while, have gained weight, and the ones newly enrolled have a long way to go. The ones who are recovering said that it was the first time in months that they felt strong, alert and energetic. They come to the IT center regularly and do their school work. They were filled with gratitude, and when I shared about your generosity with them, they asked me to thank you from their hearts.

Most of the sick patients come to Asha in large numbers, and I observed they are all being taken very good care of and being given free treatment.

The warriors expressed gratitude for being a part of the Asha family that they all love so much. They brought out a Gratitude Cake, asked me to cut it, and each one expressed their gratitude for so many ways in which their lives were being changed. The atmosphere was filled with love, hope, joy, ambition, and much more.
