A Healthier Approach to Health Care
“Heart In Hand” is one of the Pillars of The Bridge-India, focusing on free Health care services in remote and rural villages. We extend the deep consolidation in remotes areas through our Medical Camps. We are educating the importance of maintaining cleanliness in attaining a sound health to the rural people by means of our Health Awareness Program.
We are enhancing our great effort to strengthen the phrase “building active and sustainable communities based on social justice and mutual respect” via Community Empowerment.
Majority of the People living in remote Villages are daily wage laborers, who earn very meager income. They don’t go hospital or get a health check up even when they are sick. Because, their little income won’t be sufficient to afford to the lost of getting a good health check up or buying the medicines the doctor has prescribed for them. Hence, many people die each year even though their sickness was easily curable.
Lack of Awareness:
Many people fall sick easily due to the lack of proper awareness. They don’t know the importance of washing hands, taking bath daily or the need of keeping houses and the surroundings clean in maintaining a good health. They don’t bother about the quality of water they drink or the food they eat. Hence, they become physically unstable and fall sick very easily.
Over 40,000 children die every day from malnutrition and the diseases caused due to it. They don’t get to eat a healthy food or proper nourishment's. Many of the time, they don’t even get basic vaccinations or the needed vitamins for their better health.
We organize free Medical Camps in remote and rural villages. We Invite specialized doctors from renowned hospitals and give them general health checkups, eye checkups, dental checkups and other medical checkups to them. We also provide free medicines & treatments to people according to their need. Through this, we help the underprivileged people to have the access to health care services freely. Apart from camps, we also conduct health awareness programs in villages & communities.
