Before the end of the year We, The Management, Staff and Students of Lok Seva Sangam would like to thank all benefactors, well-wishers and volunteers for enriching our lives with your support, mentoring and presence . We would also like to wish you all the Blessings of the Christmas Season and A Happy and Prosperous New Year.
If the whole world was strewn with amazing people like YOU,
Reasons for violence and hatred would be very few,
If everyone tried hard to be responsible and kind,
An Eye for an Eye WOULDN’T make the world blind !
It is with deep regret that we inform you of the passing away of the Co-Founder of Lok Seva Sangam on 9th June, 2016. She touched the lives of many and will live forever in our hearts. Rest In Peace Sr. Luigina, you will be greatly missed.
A Medical Camp in collaboration with the M East Ward MOH was held in which 50% of those tested were diagnosed as anaemic. Iron tonics were distributed but LSS plans on taking this facility to cover a larger area as Iron-deficiency anaemia is the most common form of malnutrition in the world and is the eighth leading cause of disease in girls and women in developing countries. There is a high prevalence of anaemia among women in Mumbai.
LSS’ pilot project to use technology in Case Detection in TB gave excellent results thanks to Dr. Saurabh Rane , a young and enterprising physiotherapist, who devotes some of his time to helping NGOs. Dr. Rane, when he is not tending to the Indian Football Team, developed an amazing app that records details of patients suspected and diagnosed for Tuberculosis. In the image below you see Dr. Saurabh Rane in conversation with Donna Thakur discussing the changes in the app for reports to be generated for the latest Case Detection programme now initiated by the RNTCP.
