Healthcare & Sanitation

Gift of Vision

The indifference and ignorance about healthy living has not changed in the villages in Raichak, the villagers still avail services of ill-knowledged quacks for remedies. Eye problems like cataract, symptoms of heart blockage or angina or ischemia, early signs of diabetes etc. are unanimously neglected as trivia, especially with senior citizens who are virtually the victim of indifference, apathy, passivity and poverty.

In tune with this reality, Ambuja Neotia organizes Eye Treatment Camps every year in association with Susrut Eye Foundation & Research Centre.

Free paediatric surgeries

Children from low income families are getting treated in the Bhagirathi Neotia Woman & Child Care Centre, our Group hospital, and getting rid of their birth defects. Its an entirely free exercise for children from 6 months to 14 years. Surgeries like Cleft lip, Cleft palate, Phimosis, Umbilical hernia, Undescended testis, Tongue tie, Syndactyly, Appendixitis, Hydrocele, Inguinal hernia, Lymphatic cysts, etc. are regularly done by our eminent surgeons.

Rural Medical Camps

We organize and implement periodic healthcare camps in parts of Sunderbans and Raichak, where we provide quality health services at doorsteps of the poor. Our team of pediatricians, gynaecologists and general physicians are taken to remote villages where they give free consultations also free medicines including antibiotics to 100 patients per day. Till now we have actualized 178 such camps. The healing process is monitored through follow up camps.

Provision for drinking water

In order to solve the drinking water crisis in remote places in Raichak and Rajarhat, 9 deep tube wells have been installed so far. It has benefited 238 odd families who earlier had to travel some 1.5 km to fetch drinking water. Water samples from the new tube wells; have been sent to laboratory for water analysis to detect presence of arsenic and other minerals. The results certify that the water is safe for drinking. Ambuja Neotia has implemented this facility in collaboration with Nurpur & Patharghata Gram Panchayats.

Spreading awareness

The CSR department is involved with creating awareness amongst the masses - especially mothers and would-be mothers, whose care, health and attention is required to make every baby survive and live healthy. Village-level meetings are held with different set of community people, segregated age-wise, to discuss different relevant issues, need for education, hygiene practices, adolescent mental & physical changes, childcare, immunization, breast-feeding, preventing diseases, family planning, promoting scientific practices against superstitions et al. Issues are selected keeping in mind the age group and sex of beneficiaries. Burning issues like personal hygiene, evils of early marriage, family planning etc. is also taken up depending upon the nature of gathering. Issues like institutional delivery, sanitation practices, low-cost nutrition is given the maximum emphasis. Also taken up information regarding different benefits available from govt. schemes /projects at the panchayat /block/BDO level.

Infrastructure support for an ICDS Centre

Ambuja Neotia is closely working with 5 ICDS Centres surrounding The Ffort Raichak, where we extend our aid in terms of infrastructure & teaching materials. Amongst them, rebuilding of the Chakloknath ICDS Centre (No.71) deserves special mention.

The Integrated Child Development Scheme - ICDS was launched by the Central govt. in 1975 with the target of giving nutritional, healthcare and pre-primary educational coverage to every Indian child. Today there is an ICDS Centre in every village providing cooked meal, vaccination and monitoring support to newborns till the age of 6.

ICDS Centre No.71 in Chakloknath village of Raichak caters to 30 families. 45 children are getting nutritious cooked food from there to address malnutrition. Children as well as lactating mothers get immunized, health monitoring done by Asha workers and children reaching 4 years, start with their pre-primary education there.

Sanitation

Currently we are giving our maximum thrust to this ambitious programme, which is in tune with the Swacch Bharat Abhiyan. With the aim to put an end to open defaecation, we have implemented 314 household sanitary toilets in villages of Sunderbans and Raichak. Work is on to cover 100% families with zero open defaecation in the villages we work for. We also promote smokeless chullah in these households to prevent carbon pollution.
