Quick Response Saved the Life of Female Labour Farita
In the labor camp of the Sewerage project at Bhilwara, a woman labourer who was pregnant had delivery/labor pains in middle of the night and her position was critical. Luckily, the fellow labourers had the mobile numbers of a female Social Outreach Team (SOT) member working under the Social Expert of CAPC town unit. On receiving emergency call at midnight the Social Expert and female SOT member rushed to the spot and despite a strict lock down without any delay arranged for the ambulance and took her to the hospital. Since, it was pre-mature delivery case, the conditions were very critical… and despite all efforts the child could not be saved. But quick response of the female SOT member and Social Expert saved the women’s life. She is now out of danger. Even post hospitalisation, the Town Expert arranged for all possible facilities and help like food, medicines etc., So that she did not face any kind of problem during Corona Pandemic.
Most importantly during 2nd Wave of the Corona pandemic, working regularly in the field and meeting communities & people for project and COVID-19 awareness activities, our Social Expert, despite all precautions, got corona infected but managed to prepare the daily reports desired by client and core unit of CAPC every day.
