Performance – Cum – Achievement Report for the Period: 18-7-2009 to 31-10-2009.
I.For the year 2009-10, the mobile dispensary, service work in chenchu gudems, Kurnool district,is entrusted to 3 doctors only instead of 4, dividing the area in to 3 sectors.II.A grant of $12,000 (Rs.5,72,160), released by IDRF USA for the 3
time, received on 1-7-2009into SB a/c no10486273775 at SBI, Bazar Road, Nandyal kurnool dt. for the year 2009-10.III.As we contemplate to have an alternative strategy so as to sustain good results that we achievedin combat with TB, which was rampant in the chenchu tribal area of Kurnool dist., we startedscreening with the help of LCD projector, CDs of spiritual values, Mythological films, followed by counseling by the doctors present on health aspects, with reference to the ill effects of liquor,spurious drugs and other bad habits.IV.(a)The regular visits as per schedule, the mobile dispensary started with effect from 18-7-09, for theyear 2009-10.(b)Unfortunately during the period 2-10-09 to 5-10-09, unprecedented, unexpected flood slashedKurnool district, particularly town and few parts of rural side and tribal area in the district. In 6chenchu gudems where in our mobile medical service is catering the needs, the floods swept awayall the belongings of chenchus i.e. fishing nets, the few numbers of goats and sheep they arenearing crop, cooking utensils and other daily items which is all the poor man’s only wealth;while they themselves ran away for shelter to nearby hill rocks stranded there for about week days, till the waters receded, while some more gudems also had the impact of flood, but in a smallway. Any way, in a big way many philanthropists and seva societies came to the rescue of allthese flood victims in the area (chenchus and non-chenchu victims). They are slowly stabilizing.Though it is already past about 60 days, most of the victims who lost their houses are still takingshelter in tents in open areas.(c)In these floods at Kurnool, residents of two of our doctors are badly damaged and are to beequipped from the scrap.
