From the Desk of Dr Anil Heroor!!.
The new normal is also about having an open mind. We at Oncohope ACC stretch our boundaries when we want to find what works best for our patients whatever the stage of cancer or type of therapy. Exploring the benefits of alternative medicine albeit scientifically is one such way. Wonderful session by our patients support group Maitree parivar. Vaidya Mangesh Deshpande talked about Ayurved and cancer and the attempt we as a group are making to improve the quality of life in terminally ill cancer patients. More than100 survivors attended the session from all over India. Great job Dr Tejinder Singh, Mrs Preeti Purohit and Maitree parivar. Thank you Vd Mangesh Deshpande #cancersurvivor.
In this time of crisis, we are all engaged in various ways to do our bit to fight this pandemic. While major institutions like KEM, Sion and Nair hospitals in the public space and Fortis Kaushalya and others in the private sector are doing stellar work, we often tend to forget the rural areas. The ASHA workers, the PHC doctors and paramedics ambulance drivers are also fighting a grim battle. There is an acute shortage of PPE and even basic gown masks and face shields which we in cities have easy access to. Am happy that our NGO, GKC trust could help these bravehearts by donating Surgical gowns, caps masks and face shields through the office of the Panchayat Samiti Kalyan rural.
Long road of migrant workers carrying what is left of their dream on their shoulders, their feet burning in the hot summer sun is now sadly a common sight. We at Gopal krishna charitable trust tried to give our small help by distributing water and glucose biscuits at the Shil kalyan road. Kudos to the volunteers especially Mr Ravikant kadam to do this humanitarian work in this sweltering heat.
Great humanitarian work done by our volunteers Dr Swapnil mr kadam mr mahesh and others from GKC trust and young star group ... When you see these youngsters you realise that there is hope in this country becoming great again. Thank you to all those who believed in us and wholeheartedly supported our cause. Nearly 1000 people being fed everyday by a community kitchen and by way of distribution
Today we started in the morning at 9am from the Shastri Nagar hospital in Dombivli where we distributed breakfast to the staff and doctors. This was followed by distribution to the Police personnel on duty and staff and doctors at the Rukminibai hospital in Kalyan. Then we got to the main task of the day i.e distributing food to the poorest sections of our society. This is a basti at Durgadi killa made of brick kiln workers', road construction workers', Adivasis from near the barvi dam area. They don't have any permanent address and hence it is difficult for the authorities to reach them. We have made arrangements for their daily rice dal and vegetables. In this we were helped a lot by the RKO Right youngsters group who did a lot of ground work. The conditions of these people bring one to tears. I hope and pray that the current situation ends soon!
Gopal Krishna charitable trust is thankful for all your financial and moral help. We will continue giving you updates on the same.
