Story

As everyone is aware that Marrigudem Mandal of Nalgonda district in Telangana is very known for fluoride affected families. With all your help we as a team wanted to construct a fluoride rehabilitation center to help the fluoride victims get proper timely medication with an expert in house. We also want to construct to extend our support to the unseen grandmothers and grandfathers to show our love in those rural areas. In our recent survey we have identified many grandmothers and grandfathers who are really struggling hard for their sustenance with this, There are hardly very few grandfathers and grandmothers who are walking straight, Most of them from these villages are fighting with fluoride and are mostly on grounds and are floor walkers basically. It is very hard for them to move from one place to another place they definitely need support for them to move forward, in such some cases for grandmothers and grandfathers there is no one supporting them in taking care of them . So we have taken initiative Fluorosis rehabilitation center is first of its kind program that we have started for our grandmother and grandfathers to show our love. We have got a piece of land who wish to give it to us for the construction of the site. all we need is your support to construct a building and some basic infrastructure.
Introduction: Fluorosis, a public health problem is caused by excess intake of fluoride through drinking water/food products over a long period. It results in major health disorders like dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis and non skeletal fluorosis.
Problem: Dental fluorosis affects children and discolours and disfigures the teeth. The teeth could be chalky white and may have white, yellow, brown or black spots or streaks on the enamel surface. Discoloration is way from the gums and bilaterally symmetrical. Skeletal fluorosis affects the bones and major joints of the body like neck, back bone,Shoulder, hip and knee joints with severe pain, rigidity of stiffness in joints. In sere forms results in marked disability . non skeletal fluorosis is an earlier manifestation of fluorosis seen as gastro intestinal compaints etc and may overlap with other diseases leaded to misdiagnosis.

I wish everyone to support for this cause in showing our love towards the grandmothers and grandfathers of marrigudem mandal.
