We strive to work as a helping hand in identifying the hospital bed availability, ambulance, oxygen alternatives, references of medical stores and the plasma donors. In case you need help, kindly submit your request prayaas.org.in

CHILD SURVIVAL INDIA

The second surge of COVID19 in last two months challenged and overwhelmed our healthcare resources, especially with respect to the availability of oxygen beds and ICU beds in hospitals.

Severe COVID-19 caused significant numbers of patients to develop respiratory symptoms that required increasing interventions. Initially, the treatment for severe respiratory failure included early intubation and invasive ventilation, as this was deemed preferable to be more effective than Non-Invasive Ventilation (NIV). However, emerging evidence has shown that NIV may have a more significant and positive role and BIPAP machines are being recommended for use for those with complex respiratory conditions who contract COVID-19.

The Administrators and hospitals are now focusing on getting more oxygen cylinders ,oxygen concentrators , BIPAP machines etc. so that they could expand their patient capacity for treating more and more COVID patients coming in with respiratory issues .

Thus Child survival India with the CSR support from Asian Paints limited today donated 18 Bilevel Positive Airway Pressure (BiPAP) machines and 25 D type oxygen cylinders to district authorities at Mysuru so that district could operationalise more ICU beds in its hospitals .

COVID 19 Relief :
The second surge of pandemic brought to fore the need of strengthening our public health infrastructure .Many patients requiring oxygen support needed to be shifted to the nearest hospital and those requiring tertiary care needed to be shifted from Taluk hospital to district hospital .It was realised that a well equipped ambulance with oxygen support could also help in saving lives as patients get timely support even on the way to hospital .

Realising this vital need , Child Survival India with the support of Asian Paints , Mysuru has donated an ambulance to the Taluk hospital at Nanjangud.

The ambulance was handed over by Asian Paints senior management at Mysuru plant to the MLA for Varuna constituency Dr yathindra Siddaramaiah and Ms.Mohanakumari, tahsildar Nanjangud taluk.

Good initiative

It is natural for children to feel stress, anxiety, grief, and worry during an ongoing pandemic like COVID-19. Fear and anxiety about their own health and the health of loved ones can be overwhelming and cause a lot of stress to children. The second wave of COVID has disrupted many families and many children would have seen death closely in their own family ,in extended family or in neighbourhood. Children may feel confused and at loss with the current situation. This sense of loss and loneliness is enhanced when children are not able to go out, play, attend school or interact freely with their peers.

COVID-19 is also bringing new stressors on parent and caregivers. This can hamper their capacity to provide care and remain engaged with their children. Being very keen observers of people and environments, children will notice, absorb and react to the stress in their caregivers and community members, which unavoidably will affect their well-being. Levels of stress will be exponentially higher among vulnerable families, especially families where wage earners loose their livelihood.

When stress levels go up for adults and children, there is a greater risk of gender based violence and other forms of violence against children. Children may express psychological distress (anxiety, sadness) by acting out in a different way – each child behaves differently. Some may become silent while other may feel and express anger and hyperactivity

Thus it becomes very important that when schools reopen ,they are well prepared to provide a space where children can relax , express their thoughts and feelings, are listened to, and are free to ask any question and are answered honestly.

Realising this vital need, Child Survival India , with the support of Save The Children has created “Happy Rooms” in 10 MCD schools(5 buildings) in South Delhi . Each Happy Room is a cheerfully painted room with different activity corners –a music corner, a reading corner , a games corner and a art & craft corner. These corners would provide opportunity to children to engage in a creative interactive activity, such as playing and drawing that can help them find positive ways to express disturbing feelings such as anger, fear and sadness. This would help children to heal and to feel safe and healthy .#Happyrooms #mentalhealthofchildren #stressrelease #COVID19andmentalhealth
