“It is Health that is real wealth not the pieces of gold and silver,” said Mahatma Gandhi.
For the people living in urban slums and rural villages, health is a secondary issue, food is the primary one.
Health is the aspect which is neglected by people as they do not have access to affordable healthcare. We have two health clinics – one in Village Gusbethi, Haryana and the other one in Sanjay Colony, Okhla Phase-II, Delhi
We provide basic preventive healthcare solutions to the members of the local community in both the locations.
Deepalaya and All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) have joined their hands for providing eye-care services to those who belong from deprived section of our society. From eye-check up to diagnosis to cataract surgery, everything is free of cost.
A team from AIIMS hospital visits Gusbethi one in a week and once in a month in Sanjay Colony for conducting eye check-up camps. Patients are given medicine free of cost and those suffering from cataract are treated free of cost at AIIMS hospital.
Not only this, mega camps are organized in the far flung areas of Mewat.
We also regularly conduct health camps and nutrition camps periodically in all our projects to promote good health care practices.
We are also working for women health. They are the axis of every family but they themselves ignore their health. Menstruation is taboo in our society; females are not encouraged to discuss the problems they face during the menstrual cycle. This is the main reason why many girls suffer from infections or other gynecological issues. Keeping this in mind we conduct the awareness camps among community women.
Apart from this we also set up Umang Unit self-help group and prepare Sangini Sanitary pads. The idea behind this project was to introduce sanitary pads at nominal cost among women living in slum areas and also give opportunities to work another group of women by making this product sustainably.
