Monthly Medical Kits to Underprivileged Bedridden Patients.

Monthly Medical Kits to underprivileged Bedridden Patients.

Thousands of underprivileged bedridden patients in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana states have become paralyzed due to spinal cord injuries. The majority of these individuals are daily laborers who used to work at construction sites, and due to accidents and spinal cord injuries, they have become paralyzed and are essentially bedridden. Because of their poverty, they can't afford diapers, urine bags, catheters, and other basic medications that are essential for their daily survival. They endure immense suffering every day and often feel as though they are waiting to die. Many develop bedsores, which typically occur over time from lying down continuously in unhygienic conditions.

All it takes is one bundle of diapers, urine bags, catheter tubes, cotton packs, and some medicines. Altogether, for a month, it costs Rs. 850 plus Rs. 150 for courier/mail, totaling Rs. 1000 (around $15) per month, which could extend their life by a month. For the past three years, Hope4Spandana has been providing medical kits every month to underprivileged bedridden patients. It's practically impossible for the organization to assist all bedridden individuals. To begin with, Hope4Spandana provided 100 patients who were in the most need of the medical kits. During the first week of every month, medical kits are dispatched from Hyderabad to various remote locations in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, reaching their doorstep. This initiative is providing them with hope and the opportunity to live longer.
