BBWS is engaged in providing quality health care services to the underprivileged
section of the people in the rural areas and in the city slums free of charges.
The Society's programmes on health care for the rural tribal people in Jhargram
- especially for the Physically Impaired Persons, needs enhancement of the
existing service set-up of the Orthopaedic Hospital and Rehabilitation Unit in
Jhargram, Midnapore West in West Bengal. The medial set-up is one of its kind in
the entire Midnapore and adjoining districts and cateres to a large number of
patients coming from adjoining East Singbum district (Jharkhand) and Mayurbhanj
district (Orissa). This necessity of the proposed Occupational Therapy and
Mid-way Home set-up is being felt in view of the growing number and complexity
of the disability category being attended to at present.
Over the last few years our Orthopaedic Hospital and Rehabilitation Department
in Jhargram is registering increased number of poor rural Children with Cerbral
Palsy, Mental Retardation and Adults with other related ailments. For effective
treatment and rehabilitation of these Children and Adults, setting up of an
Occupational Therapy Unit and Mid-way Home Structure is found of immediate
necessity. The requisite infrastructure - which include the cost of the building
and machineries for the set-up is estimated at around Rupees 10 lacs. The
proposed set-up is expected to benefit around 200 poor patients monthly.
BBWS in its pursuit of development of the Occupational Therapy & Mid-way
Home set-up for these poor rural tribal patients, and the constraints of
fund-crunch faced by the Society, makes the humble Appeal to the
benevolent Individuals, Business & Corporate Houses and National and
International Agencies to donate generously for the " Fund to set-up the
Occupational Therapy & Mid-way Home Units in Jhargram ".
