Story


Nothing could be more heart-wrenching than hearing about a pregnant mother leaving this world without seeing the face of her child. Shockingly, this happened in Film Nagar due to the lack of medical care. In 2016, a pregnant woman died during the delivery to lack of necessary healthcare services. Three months later, the innocent child also succumbed to pre-mature death due to lack of proper post- natal care.

Just imagine how it would be if you have a medical emergency, and don’t have a hospital to save your life? This is the pathetic state of slum dwellers of Film Nagar. Being underprivileged, the urban health post was the only hospital they used to count on, and that too it now remains closed, and is in a poor, dilapidated condition, deeply sunk in dirty sewage water due to negligence and incompetent road-building by the local authorities.


Government Urban health post, which was established 20 years ago in Film Nagar to provide medical care for the 40000+ deprived, is now crying for help! In the year 2009, the roads surrounding the hospital were elevated to abnormal levels, without keeping in mind the infrastructural implications of
the hospital, which resulted in hospital sink to a very low level beneath the ground. The poor sewage planning spelled doom for the hospital. The hospital got inundated with dirty sewage water. Added to that dismal state of affairs was the vicinity of a lake within the 100 meters from the hospital which resulted in hospital being completely swamped by the sewage and  the lake water.

Not able to bear that anymore, the locals made many appeals to the concerned officers, ministers and leaders, but no substantial action was taken. After the formation of Telangana state, ironically, the lake nearby was developed with a massive 3 crore budget, but authorities paid little heed to the development of the hospital. Though proposals for the renovation of the hospital were made in the assembly few times, they went unheard.

Realizing the indifference of the authorities to our pleas, we, the local youth have formed an NGO called Five Fingers with a motto that no mother should die  due to negligence and lack of necessary medicare any further. We need your help to save the lives of these poor and deprived people. Even the smallest of the contributions which would come from you would help us in renovating the hospital, so that the slum-dwellers of the Film Nagar lead healthy  and happy lives.
