SHRAVAN CHARITY MISSION VISITS APOLLO HOSPITAL DELHI ON 13TH OCTOBER TO CONTRIBUTE FOR POOR CHILDREN SUFFERING FROM CANCER

    SCM (Shravan Charity Mission) was formed to take care of poor children suffering from life threatening diseases. Since then it has been our constant endeavour to serve these bravehearts, so that, they can fight the dreaded disease with greater gumption. We also publish stories of such children. As a matter of fact, we have already published two such books with stories of two such patients.

    On 13th October 2018, SCM visited Apollo Hospital Delhi on a similar mission. Friends it is extremely heart-rending to see these young children suffering so much. And it is even more painful to see their parents seeing them going through it. And mind you parents of these children are mostly in the bracket of an income level of around eight to twelve thousand per month. Apollo Hospital has a ward for economically weaker section where these children are admitted for treatment. Our NGO has been working with Apollo Hospitals Delhi, since 2011 under the guidance of Dr Amita Mahajan, Senior Paediatric Oncologist. Till date we have made financial contributions for the treatment of over hundred children.

    At Apollo we met the following children and their wards and handed over our cheques along with our best wishes. It is extremely important for us to ensure, that these children, suffering from cancer should smile and lead a normal life just as any other child. And there isn’t a more holy feeling than the thought of interacting with these poor bravehearts. In all we made financial intervention for treatment of five children on 13th October as detalied below. Should you desire to contribute for the cause, the details of our bank account are given below.

Sapna

Sapna is female child, around 15 years old from Noida Uttar Pradesh. Her father’s name is Jagannath Dwivedi. He works for a private company with a meagre salary of around 7000/- month. Sapna is suffering from Osteosarcoma. Where, she has suffered the loss of her right leg, that was amputated recently … that reminds me of Arthur Hailey’s final diagnosis coming true. God what a pitiable scenario. Why do some people get everything in life and some need to suffer like this? Her treatment is likely to continue for a year. The expected cost of the treatment is going to be around 8-10 lakhs. May God bless Sapna and may God give strength and courage to her parents to take on this long battle.

Santosh

    Santosh is a four-and—a-half year old male child from Ghaziabad. He is suffering             from ALL (type of blood cancer). His father is a driver, drawing a paltry salary of               rupees eight thousand per month. He is likely to be under treatment for about three         and a half  years. The complete treatment would cost around 7-8 lakhs. Our blessings           to                        Santosh for a speedy recovery and best wishes to his parents.

Ayesha

    Ayesha is eighteen years old. Her father Abdul Qadir works as a labour in Jaipur. He          manages with an income of rupees eight thousand per month. Ayesha is suffering              from HLL, soft tissue sarcoma (a kind of cancer). Her treatment is likely to continue          for 2 years. The treatment is likely to cost around 5-6 lakhs. We wish Ayesha a                      speedy recovery and to her parents a positive attitude.

Asharfi

     Asharfi Parveen is male child of around 14 years. He is from Kishanganj, Bihar.                  Where, his father Atul works as a labour. His monthly income is around Rs 8000/-               month. Asharfi suffers from AML (Blood Cancer). His treatment is likely to continue        for one year and estimated cost would be around 7-8 lakhs. We wish Asharfi a speedy       recovery and best wishes to his parents.

kartik Garg

Kartik Garg is a male child of around 10 years. His father is Manoj Garg. They belong to Gopipur, in district Hapur, Uttar Pradesh. This boy is suffering from AML (Blood cancer). His treatment is likely to continue for a year. The expected treatment cost is going to 8 to 10 lakhs. We wish Kartik Garg a speedy recovery, and his parent’s peace of mind.

    On 29th May your NGO was in Apollo Hospital, New Delhi yet again to meet some brave hearts. It is believed children have a more positive attitude when it comes to fighting life threatening diseases—‘Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference—Winston Churchill.’

        One cannot help but praise profusely these children and their parents for taking up this tough fight against cancer. This time we could not interact with them as they were too young and in their mother’s lap. Perhaps, they didn’t even know what has struck them. We handed over our contribution to the parents of these children while wishing them the very best. We are more than sure soon they would be up and about.

    We are delighted to inform our donors and well wishers. That Apollo Hospitals, which happens to be one of the leading chain of hospitals in India. Has accorded recognition to the work we have done for ‘poor children suffering from life threatening diseases.’

MEET THE MIGHTY WARRIORS- NGO ACTIVITY ON JULY 3, 2015

By Kamlesh Tripathi

 

“Strength is born in the deep silence of long-suffering hearts; not amidst joy.” – Felicia Hemans

So true! And quite undoubtedly, when cancer strikes, it takes you to those long and dark tunnels, from where you need only a warrior’s might to return.

And, as a part of our NGO activity today, I met two bright young, smiling girls braving it out, with cancer. They were nothing else, but an unrelenting streak of energy and confidence. And I’m more than sure they will be out of the scourge soon. And, to help them smile we made a contribution towards their treatment. So join us in wishing them the best.

20150704_143024
Neha KumariMiss Neha Kumari, age, 15 years, is from Katihar, in Bihar. She doesn’t have her parents and she is here with her uncle for treatment, who happens to be a student. The family income is a measly five thousand rupees. She is suffering from ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia-blood cancer) and the treatment will cost around rupees 4 lacs. We wish her all the best.

2. Miss Sheetal Sharma, age, 13 years, is from Faridabad. Her father is a driver and earns a monthly salary of around seven thousand. She has bone cancer, for the past one year and the treatment, will cost around rupees 6-8 lacs.

We salute the uncle of Neha, and parents of Sheetal for tirelessly fighting the battle.

Our best wishes to them.

NGO ACTIVITY: DISTRIBUTING TOYS TO POOR ANGELS SUFFERING FROM CANCER

Copyright@shravancharitymission

New Doc 29_1

On two occasions we visited these poor unfortunate children in the hospital to distribute toys. Surprisingly, some of them were from foreign lands as far as Mauritius. The hospital letter speaks of our little effort in bringing about smiles on these otherwise dull faces. And at times we do wonder why such tiny little children get cancer?

Article: ARE RURAL SCHOOLS PLAYING WITH THE FUTURE OF OUR CHILDREN AND INDIA?

Copyright@shravancharitymission

NGO Pratham has done well in bringing out an outstanding report called the Annual Status of Education Report (ASER 2014). ASER is an annual household survey to assess children’s schooling status and basic learning levels in Reading and Arithmetic. It is the tenth such survey facilitated by Pratham. This is the largest and most comprehensive annual household survey of children in rural India. It surveyed 16,497 villages located in 577 districts across India covering 341,070 households and 569,229 children.

POSITIVES AT SCHOOL LEVEL:

India, would love to hear, that enrolments in schools, are at a level of 96% and that too for the 6th year in a row. So, most of our kids are now at least, sauntering down the school classrooms. And, to toast the occasion there are regular mid-day meals, to take care of their nourishment and over 80% of our schools have improved infrastructure. And the buck doesn’t stop here, as 75% of rural schools now have provision for drinking water, while 65% even have toilets, which is significantly higher than about half a decade ago.

NON-ACHIEVEMENTS AT SCHOOL LEVEL:

So, while we have made steady progress on the infrastructure side of our schools, what still remains deficient is on the teaching side – how well are these schools teaching their pupils? In depth details are available online. But here are some disturbing points:

  • Almost 50% of the kids in class 5 cannot read simple sentences that are taught in class 2.
  • 50% of the kids in class 5 cannot do basic two digit subtraction which is taught in class 2.
  • And half the kids in class 8 cannot do even simple division that is taught in class 4

So then what is going on in these schools? As half of our school children after having spent more than half a decade in school cannot read basic sentences and do even simple arithmetic; when they could have learnt this in 2-3 years of urban education or in any private school. So do these teachers employed with these schools have any accountability?

ruralrr4

SO THEN, WHERE ARE HEADING TO?

Are these schools responsible for creating a talent pool in our country or are we just to rejoice over enrollment numbers and mid-day meals and forget the core issue of educating our children. In the literacy chain of India this could be the weakest link. For what is literacy anyway? Is it just being able to write your name or learn the bare minimum skill of being able to read and solve those basic arithmetical problems. A skill that you will require lifelong. Or is it something much more than that.

Basic skill of reading and arithmetic is vital for survival in today’s world; as life in any form will require these skills. And if the basics are not strong. No matter how much of education you add in later years will only go for a waste. As the data explains adding number of years of education to such laggards will be of no use. And, also, such laggards though counted in enrollment will never get educated.

And, mind you the percentage of such students is very high, and at a staggering fifty percent. India could have lived with a miniscule percentage of such students but because it is half our students, it depicts an applecart failure in our education system.
