Good to see that you are interested in our work. On the following pages we would like to tell you about our projects in India.
You will certainly realize very quickly that we are mostly concerned about safeguarding medical care for the poor children in the tribal villages of West Bengal. For this reason we are currently in the process of establishing a children's hospital in which children can be looked after and cared for.
By building public washhouses and lavatories and with the help of regular workshops we will succeed in improving the hygienic conditions in the villages in the long run. This will also help to prevent many health-related problems up front.
We intend to support the people in India in their endeavor at independence also with the help of sustainable projects such as the building of solar installations, the organization of food programs and a small bakery.
Please look for yourselves and page through the different reports we have compiled for you.
Your Shining Eyes Team
Dr. Monika Golembiewski
We found this young men with severe anemia and breathing difficulty and hemoglobin was down to 1.5g%. We transferred him for blood transfusion. Also women and children are often found with anemia in the villages and we try through the nutrition prgrammes to enrich the diet.
Our TB patients regains strength
Very weakly we found this mother in the village with severe TB and no food. We have taken her in our hospital and can provide medicines and 5 nutritious meals every day. Now she can sit again and laugh - also her 3 small children get preventive medicines.
Nutrition training for mothers
Kallol and Anindita train the mothers of the malnourished children every week at the hospital: At what age children need supplement food? What is a healthy meal? And how to provide it at low cost? Mothers eat a nutritious meal and are invited to start a vegetable garden at home.
New nutrition programme started
After Durga Puja celebrations Patharkata villagers started their nutrition programme in the village. Three days a week children below 3 years and pregnant ladies receive a highly nutritious supplement meal with wheat, nuts and milk. Mothers learn to enrich thier daily diet and plant vegetable kitchen gardens.
Nutrition day in the hospital
We have implemented a nutrition day in our children hospital. We invite all malnourished children and pregnant women from one village for medical checkup and laboratory tests. Afterwards we teach about valuable food at low cost and mothers prepare nutritious meals on their own.
