Better Hope, a non-governmental organization proposes to organize “Medical
Camp for Better Health of Kashmiri Rural Population”
We are looking forward to organise medical camps covering eight villages, approximately benefiting 4000 families. The villages have been identified based on their inability to reach to urban area health care facilities during pandemic, when public transportation is limited and panic is aloud among local population while visiting health care facilities owing to travel involved. Loss of employment, decreased earnings due to loss of tourism (Majority of Kashmiris being involved in tourism industry) is another factor identified for the population evading basic health care for them and their families. The project duration will be for 6 months (Starting from September 2021 to March 2022) & estimated cost is 5,00,000/- INR.
The project will be carried out in three stages. The blue print for these is discussed below briefly:
Stage I- PREPRATORY STAGE (2 months)
The volunteers from NGO will visit each village panchayat and will indulge in
dialogue with the heads of villages. Identification of more local volunteers will
be done. Site selection for organizing camp will be carried out. A site easily approachable, timings convenient to local population as per the activities they are involved will be worked on. Once, exact date and time are finalized, a suitable marketing will be carried out through announcements from text messages, village panchayats, posters at local markets giving wider coverage to medical camp. Purchase of required medical supplies will also be carried during this phase. Services of voluntary medical professionals like Doctors, Nurses and Pharamacists will also be
arranged during this phase.
It is expected that a time of two months will be required to work on ground in this
Stage 2: IMPLEMENTATION STAGE (3 months)
During implementation stage, medical camps will be held at identified villages with involvement of all volunteers and NGO people. Clinics will
be held for a day or more than that as per requirement gauzed during stage I at
particular site. Qualified Doctors, trained nurses/ dispensers will be posted to
provide up to mark service to local population. If required, the doctors may
further recommend a particular medical case to only Govt Hospital for further intervention. During this phase primary focus will be to create awareness among general population about hygiene, early acknowledgement of signs and symptoms of COVID and other common ailments. The focus in case of young girls and women will add to it awareness about menstrual hygiene too. Women will be encouraged to discuss the issues involving menstrual health with the
doctors at local govt hospitals. To achieve menstrual hygiene, free distribution of sanitary napkins will also be carried out. A session on cost effective nutritious
diet for adolescents and pregnant woman is also planned. Various traditional recipes and cooking methods will be introduced during this
Complete detailed record for OPD patients, referral cases, prescribed and supplied medicines, sanitary napkins will be maintained by team in registers. As
same team will cover all villages, a period of around three months is dedicated to this phase. More health-related issues will also be identified and noted for future interventions.
Stage III: EVALUATION AND REPORTING STAGE (1 month)
The team’s performance and success of medical camps will be measured on satisfaction level of beneficiaries. Phone calls, personal visits will be made to the
people who visited during camp to have feedback. The same will be recorded by NGO based on pre decided indicators. The success will be measured, flaws will
be noted to avoid repetition in future.
Documentation of funds spent on medical supplies, stationary items (registers etc), organizing of medical camp, engaging services of professionals (if unable to
get volunteers), transportation charges, refreshment charges for the team on day of activity will be maintained along with list of beneficiaries. The same may be asked in addition to utilization certificate by the funding agency. Picture sharing from site, wider coverage on all social media platforms, publicity with local population is ensured by NGO.
