Mokhada

 Nutrition

 

Mokhada, a taluka located in Palghar district of Maharashtra has long been known for malnutrition amongst children between age group of 0-6 years.

 

Taking its focus on rural development ahead, Indiabulls Foundation has adopted the entire Mokhada taluka with an intention to curb its growing malnutrition rate along with improving the health conditions and bring about sustainable change amongst the people of Mokhada. More than 3,15,000 (children + pregnant ladies + lactating mothers) individuals have benefitted till date through the IBF nutrition programme in Mokhada.

 

The implementation plan includes direct interventions through:

• Providing nutritional supplement (Paushtik Aahar) to primarily the target population of children in the age group of 6 months to 6 years, pregnant women and lactating mothers. Paushtik Ahar ensures to supplement the existing local food practices and confirms a nutritious addition in the daily dietary intake of the women and children
• Initiation of Free Mobile Medical vans that will cater to primary medical needs of the people living in villages without access to essential medical aid
• Conducting mega health camps in schools and villages so that regular medical interventions will help in promoting a healthy living among the people
• Creating awareness and sensitisation with the help of IEC’s to ensure sustainability in our approach and helping build a healthy future for the locals

 

Indiabulls Foundation involves the entire community in this programme so as to make the community accountable for their growth, progress and also their sustained health development.

 

Healthcare

 

To cater to almost 84,000 residents there are only 4 Primary Healthcare Centres (PHC's) and 1 Rural Hospital in Mokhada taluka. The lack of proper connectivity has majorly affected the health conditions of locals here.

 

This limited availability of basic health care prompted Indiabulls Foundation to start 3 JanSwasthya Kalyan Vahikas (Mobile Medical Vans) initiative. Jan Swasthya Kalyan Vahika is a community centric project initiated by IBF with an objective of providing primary health care services to the under-privileged population through a medically equipped mobile van. These Mobile Medical Vans currently are running, covering all 4 divisions of Mokhada providing treatment for scabies, anemia, nutritional deficiency, infestations etc…Good quality medicines at doorstep coupled with professional diagnosis has started immediately to improve the health conditions of local people of Mokhada each day.

 

The vans cover 4 divisions of Ase, Morhanda, Washala and Khodala. Each van runs 6 days a week visiting 24 locations per week and diagnosing 150 to 200 patients per day.

Trimbakeshwar

Trimbakeshwar famous for its temples is a place for religious tourism in Nashik district of Maharashtra. Trimbakeshwar as a town has got comparatively better roads and transportation and health facilities. However, Trimbakeshwar as a taluka is as vulnerable as Shahapur and Mokhada. The Trimbakeshwar tribes are still facing day to day challenges of poverty, lack of education, superstition, unemployment etc. The healthcare facilities, education facilities etc are yet not sufficient enough for majority of the rural and tribal belts of Trimbakeshwar. Hence, Indiabulls Foundation came forward to adopt Trimbakeshwar as a taluka with an aim to enhance the healthcare facilities, nutritional status and sanitation, especially amongst women.  

 

Health: under its health domain Indiabulls Foundation is running 2 mobile medical vans and conducting regular rural health checkup camps.

Jan Swasthya Kalyan Vahika (JSK) - Mobile Medical Van: JSK van is a fully equipped van with primary health care facilities, free medicines, an MBBS doctor and a qualified pharmacist.

Rural Health checkup camps:  As an immediate response to the dire need of the locals Indiabulls Foundation organizes multiple regular health checkup camps in the remotest villages of Trimbakeshwar taluka.

Nutrition:  To curb the growing malnutrition in the taluka Indiabulls Foundation provides Paushtik Aahar- Nutrition Supplement to children from the age group between 6 months to 6 years, pregnant women and lactating mothers. However, distribution is only a part of the entire project; the other part which is equally important is to create continuous awareness in the people. Educating the people on the importance of nutrition, health and other related issues are the backbone of this project. The entire taluka of Trimbakeshwar is divided between 15 Out Reach Workers hired and professionally trained by Indiabulls Foundation. The major task of these ORWs is to reach out to the target beneficiaries, provide them Paushtik Aahar if needed and give them life skill education on daily basis. Indiabulls Foundation has benefitted nearly 30000 beneficiaries through its Nutrition project.


Shahapur

The people of Shahapur are very poor and their extreme poverty has affected their level of education, health, nutrition, sanitation etc. Due to extreme poverty people migrate to the adjoining cities in search of employment. Indiabulls Foundation after assessing the situation adopted the entire taluka of Shahapur with an aim to provide them better health facilities, to increase their nutritional status and offer them better ways of sanitation.
