వెచ్చదనం పంచాలని ఉందా!! Do you have warmth in your heart to share it with others?

Dear Fellow Bloggers and Readers,

Greetings!!

As we are about to end this 2011, you might have plans to bid farewell to this year with a good activity, which can fill your heart with satisfaction and esteem for making a positive difference to others.  This is about donating mats and blankets to needy patients in M N J Cancer Hospital, Nampally, Hyderabad.

Today I went to M N J Cancer Hospital in Red Hills, Nampally to find out any requirement for blankets. By chance I could meet the Director, Dr. Prabhakar Rao.  
 
When I introduced myself and expressed our interest to provide blankets for patients, he responded very positively. He suggested that at any time hospitals require blankets. We can consider giving patients directly so that they can take it to their homes or can give to hospital itself so that they can use it for sets of patients, as hospital property. He mentioned that if we want to give to hospital it should be in red color only as they follow color code.

This is the blanket used in M N J.

 He also suggested that it would be useful to provide mats to the patients who stay in the temporary shelter adjacent to the hospital (as an annexe).  This is for patients who undergo radiation treatment. Each patient need to be here for at least 25 days to 30 days. 

Entrace of the Shelter

Usually they have to come to hosptial only for radiation treatment.  Once the procedure is done, they can leave and come back next day. But as they come from different places and also they do not have enough money to pay for dormitories to stay during this period, shelter is provided at a place adjacent to the hospital.

This shelter is arranged with the help of donors. One person provided asbestos sheets (roofing) and some provided fans and lights. One hotel owner, which is near this hospital, is doing great service. He arranged gas stoves, cylinders and provisions. Patients need to bring utensils only. In addition to that he provides milk in the morning, breakfast and one meal a day. 

Kitchen set up by hotel owner free of cost

Thanks to Kasyap who readily agreed to volunteer for this activity, we, TMAD, immediately purchased 30 mats (6X9 ft) @ 180 rs. per piece.

Our volunteers Kishore and Harinath garu also responded quickly and visited the hospital at a very short notice. We will be arranging this mats in the shelter on the coming Monday (19th Dec, 2011).
