Healthcare in Communities

Awareness programs and rallies

SEESHA team in association with the local administration at Chennai Vanagaram, organized a campaign creating awareness on keeping the surroundings clean & proper hand washing methods, educating the layman on the symptoms of coronavirus and urging them to seek early medical assistance.

Beginning at Karunya Nagar and extending through the nearby tribal villages, awareness programs are being conducted through educational posters and demonstrations. Staff nurses demonstrate safe hand-washing techniques to each village community volunteer and they take it to the communities. The method of mixing disinfectants in the right proportion to be used in the communities, is also taught to them through demonstration. Dos and Don'ts to create coronavirus awareness are made as banners and are placed at high visibility areas both in English and Tamil.

The Team has boldly stepped out with necessary precautionary measures to fight the pandemic, risking their lives.

Helping hand of the elders of OACH and SEESHA women's group

Listening to the concerns of the community volunteers, doctors and paramedics with regard to the demand of masks in the market and their rising prices, the elders of the OACH, despite their physical ailments offered to stitch cloth masks to be used by the volunteers, healthcare workers and the general public in the surrounding areas. Watching the zeal of the elders, the women's self-help groups also joined them in stitching cloth masks. They have rendered their helping hands to ensure that someone is safe through their small gesture of kindness. SEESHA took the responsibility of buying the raw materials for the masks. SEESHA also gave them incentives in order to encourage them to do the work joyfully.
