Medical facilities through Drishtikare, our health program

Champawat is the first project chapter of Drishtikare and Child Care is our primary concern. Aid is subsidized/free as the case may be Drishtikare is the main medical centre for Raven Mount School (T)

ETHOS

To seek and get medical relief is the right of every citizen. Quick effective medical aid is all the more a distant dream in remote areas . If the terrain is mountainous, then nearly an impossibility. To make such impossibility and dreams a reality, is the ethos of Drishtikare.

AIMS AND OBJECTIVES

Organize medical relief and transport trauma cases. Set up health camps at regular intervals. Spread health awareness through print and visual media. Establish a medical aid center. Land acquired in 2005 for the same.

PEOPLE

Villagers of target areas are the active participants while Drishtikare team led by professionals are to effect such health camps. Volunteers are welcome with specific/specialized qualifications -against board and lodging at Camp Warren.

FINANCES

The activity and effectiveness is directly proportionate to the amount of finances at our disposal. Inception and maintenance of a mobile medical unit (MMU), is of primary concern still.

DISPENSARY

The land has been bought which is located at the road head. The dispensary/building and the required infrastructure is directly linked with the amount of money at our disposal. Contributions for the same are welcome the target to commence the work is year 2009—2010.

THE YEARS GONE BY

Working at the micro level; Drishtikare has successfully effected health care for the students of Raven Mount
School (T)
along with dozen workers of Drishtikone and their immediate family.

Over and above the allopathic administration importance is given to naturopathy through natural herbs and concoctions.

Other than the regular cough and cold the only bout is of measles amongst the children, with only very few being effected.

Drishtikare has been able to administer and advice the local populace in emergency and First Aid situation. Liberal use of the Drishtikone vehicle has been made by providing transportation to the District medical centre and Mayawati ashram hospital located at Loha-ghat. However a single vehicle can never ensure availability for such endeavours of emergency evacuation.

There is a strong case for a mobile medical unit with paramedic support in the outreaches of this remote mountainous border district, long pending. Suggestions/Advice/Donations are invited.
