SHGs are the Platform of Community Development
POORS SHG members have emerged as community warriors by contributing in every possible way to contain the spread of COVID-19. As the masks were the first line of defense against COVID-19, SHGs immediately took up the task of production of masks. Various categories of masks including 2-3 ply woven and non-woven surgical masks, cotton masks etc. adhering to the advisories of Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Ministry of Consumers’ Affairs and instructions of Health
Departments from the states are produced by SHGs. The masks have been supplied to the local open markets and raised money and also distributed freely to the poor and needy people in the slum areas. It has also been distributed free to the rural households in many areas of Kandhamal and Khurdha districts. SHG members have now also started making Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) like aprons, gowns, face shields etc. Now they are revitalizing the community counselling door to door and aware them to take extreme precaution to defeat COVID-19 pandemic.
Elderly & Differently Abled are Fostered
Project takes utmost care to the chronic illnesses which can influence the quality of life in elderly populations, and there is evidence that there is increased risk of multiple comorbidities in elderly populations that may lead to disability. It has been well recognized in many studies from India that morbidity influences the physical functioning and psychological well-being of elderly populations; the need “to develop geriatric health care services in developing countries on the basis of existing morbidity profile” must be emphasized. A number of morbidity patterns have been identified in elderly populations, which include “hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, constipation, cataracts and hearing loss.” In another way, the project recognized many morbid conditions “[pain/swelling of joints, limitation of movement, indigestion/heart bum, backache, breathlessness, giddiness/fainting, frequency/urgency, change in bowel habits and blurring of vision” in the elderly population from a mix of rural and urban communities. So POORS organisation conduct the health check of the people on the quarterly basis and provides medicines, doctor honorarium and other nutritional food.
It has been well recognized that elderly persons constitute one of the most vulnerable groups, who have more chances of developing chronic disease, infections, and subsequent disabilities. As a result, the elderly population is at greater risk of being less healthy than the nonelderly population. It has been suggested that the aging population in India will lead to increases in the prevalence of chronic conditions, including diabetes and hypertension, and nearly one-half (45%) of India’s disease burden is projected to be borne by older adults in 2030.
