Support for a single mother and her two children
Roopa, a 24-year-old migrant from Odisha is a single mother taking care of her two kids aged 8 years and 6 years. She used to work as a helper at the construction sites and sometimes as a housemaid in and around the railway crossing at Kodathi Dinne behind the new Wipro facility. She tested positive on 23 October 2021.
Our team visited her and helped her understand the guidelines to be followed. With the help of the local contractor and the community members, the kids were moved to the neighbour’s shed and ration was given to her to manage the situation. But regular enquiry calls from Government agencies to get update on her health status left her worried and restless.
Along with the PHC doctor, we visited her to counsel and check on the medicine intake. We advised her to remain calm and call us if anything is needed.
Thereon, our team visited her daily and fortunately, she tested negative after 14 days
