Volunteers play an important role in promoting health awareness

India is a densely populated country where a large number of people live without access to the basic education and primary health facilities. The situation is more complex in rural villages comparing to the urban areas.

Their houses are poorly established and do not have proper supply of water and electricity. They somehow manage little water from resources available at the distant places and hardly think of having shower, clean their cloths and renovate their shelters.

In addition to their poor socio economic condition, another major cause of their sufferings is lack of education and public awareness.

In rural areas pregnant ladies don’t go to hospitals for delivering their baby. They think it is more complex then to take help from the local mid wife. Most of them have more number of children than the well to do people. They don’t follow the small family norms.

They think that children are the God’s blessings and are not to be stopped from coming to this world. Their children don’t go to schools. They don’t pay attention towards their personal hygiene and health.

This is due to lack of resources and public awareness of making the optimum use of available resources.

As a result, they are malnourished and often fall sick. Due to poor economic condition they are not in a position to pay their medical bills and after little struggle, most of them pass away in their fifties.

Volunteers can play an important role in promoting health awareness in this community.

They work hand in hand with the local coordinators of the community organizations in organizing health camps for medical check up, giving vaccinations, supplying nutritious supplements and deliver the informal tips of health care in the schools, day care centers and give message to the people to adopt small family norms at community centers.

These kinds of activities help the otherwise ignorant and unaware community to empower them with the knowledge and resources to improve their overall quality of life.
