Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: India

Location: Nasik

Total Budget: $55,000

Area of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment

In India there is high incidence of the Burns injuries. Most of these injuries are household injuries, due to

1. The methods of cooking with wood or kerosene stove

2. They cook on the floor

3. They use using boiled water on stove for bath.

After the treatment of burns there are many secondary deformities of the face and extremities leading to post burns contractures and scarring. They do not have any financial support for the treatment of the secondary deformities. The government resources are either meagre or misdirected leading to permanent disabilities for these burn victims.

If you have the bird's eye view on these burn victims, they don't remain the part of the mainstream society. They remain in seclusion due to the social ridicule. Sometimes they are solely dependent on other family members for their own activities of daily living. The children suffering from the hand deformities can't eat, write or play with their hands. It leads to inferiority complexes, absenteeism form the schools and they lag behind studies, remain uneducated. In case of adults, they loose their jobs, earning capacity. Very often the victim is the sole bread earning member of the family leading to loss of resources of one generation of that family. The young women with ugly scars or the functional disabilities are often abandoned by their husbands and find difficult to get any support.

Considering the plight if these people, it will be prudent to help them correct their deformities by surgeries and rehabilitate them to the mainstream society.

This project "Hope after fire" is directed towards surgical correction of the secondary deformities of the upper limb, lower limb and face, in the hospital set up on ongoing basis.

DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
