HYDERABAD: The Health, Education and Literacy Program (HELP), a non-government social welfare organization, has adopted government dispensaries in four villages of Chhachhro and Nagarparkar Talukas of Desert District Tharparkar to provide free mother and child health services to the people.

The dispensaries are located in Dhabo Sama and Sindhian Jo Wandhiyo villages of Nagarparkar and Chhachhi Juneja and Gul Muhammad Rind villages of Chhachhro.

With the support of district health authorities and certain donors, the HELP has renovated the dispensaries, appointed community midwives and other staff and started providing round the clock facilities to the villagers.

The HELP officials told that after making the dispensaries functional, some 126 normal deliveries were carried out and 590 pregnant women were examined and post-delivery checkup of 181 women was conducted. Moreover, 205 women were provided with family planning facilities, 40 awareness sessions were held in different villages and newly born babies were vaccinated.

Dr. Harji Lal Bheel, Project Manager of HELP, told that under the project of ‘Health and Nutrition Response for Drought Affected Population of Tharparkar’ food was also distributed among the pregnant and other women at the dispensaries.

He further told that 267 Lady Health Workers and Lady Health Supervisors have been imparted training about the nutrition needs of girls of ten to nineteen years of age. Similarly, 300 midwives of Chhachhro Taluka have been trained in safe delivery methods.

Dr. Harji said that through 138 Lady Health Workers, 2231 pregnant women were provided with safe delivery kits while in 82 villages of Chhachhro food supplements were distributed among 1231 pregnant women and 1233 young girls.
