Problems in Gulbarga
Problems in Gulbarga, a city in the South Indian state of Karnataka, for one of our former funded trainees
The story is about a 2 year old girl, who hails from a near by village Jewargi (population 19000 and she is having a Tessier craniofacial cleft. When her parents saw her for the first time, they were shocked to see their daughter, and the worse was that the mother had to leave that ill fated baby with her mother (grandmother of the baby), as she (mother) was asked by the in-laws to leave her.
The important thing is that the grandmother of the girl is trying hard, but alone what she can do without any help as she herself is a daily wages worker and she is well supporting her granddaughter but she is not the decision maker, to take her to the hospital for the surgery.
Many such cases go un reported. I want to overcome this problem by establishing the Craniofacial Unit in Gulbarga, but at this stage I would like to appoint an executive who can go deep into the villages to conduct camps, can motivate them, and get them to the hospital. For all these promotional activities I do lack the financial help.
