NEWS / HIGHLIGHTS

Dengue Awareness Campaign: Vimukti Pothnal
The Dengue Awareness Campaign was initiated on 15th July, 2024 to educate the public about dengue fever, its transmission, prevention, and management. The campaign aimed to reduce the incidence of dengue by increasing community awareness and promoting proactive measures to prevent mosquito breeding. Health staff along with other staff visited the villages and identified mosquito breeding sites such as stagnant water bodies, open drains, and garbage dumps etc. vimukti staff Motivated the people to remove stagnant water, proper disposal of waste and community cleaning initiatives. The Dengue Awareness Campaign successfully achieved its objectives by raising awareness, promoting preventive measures, and reducing dengue cases in targeted areas. Continued efforts and community engagement are essential to sustain the impact and further reduce the incidence of dengue fever.

Vimukti pothnal with the migrants’ children encouraging them not to dropout of the school:
We continue to serve the migrant families scattered in various outskirts of villages and downs. They continue to live in utter poverty and neglect. Their residences are in the most inconvenient places. They live without proper road access, no toilets, no permanent houses and no drinking water. Most of them suffer as bonded laborers. Hence, we try to serve their livelihood and dignity. We reached out to their residences to help them with dress materials, food materials, stationeries, and educational kits. With the ‘VCT School Kit’ program we hope to create that ‘moment of smile’ for the underprivileged children in the society. Due to rising inflation and unemployment, more parents are unable to provide basic needs to their children or meet their school expenses.

Sunknoor Villagers demanded concerned authority bus connectivity to their villages:Vimukti Pothnal
Though basic amenities have improved to a certain level in the past years in the villages in Sunknoor in Heridinni Panchyath Manvi Taluka, one thing that hampers their growth is the lack of bus connectivity to other places in this Panchyath. The villages are located 20 km away from this Panchyath in the midst of very bad roads where more than 3500 people reside for many generations. School students and villagers demanded one Government bus service to their villages, operating in the morning leaving them with no transportation options in the evening. This lack of service has made it increasingly difficult for them to attend school with some students having to walk up to 10km in order to reach their classes. The school students are seeking a solution to this pressing issue, as they believe that a reliable bus service is crucial in ensuring their access to education. Many individuals are forced to walk long distances to reach the main road to catch a bus to reach other villages. The villagers appealed to the MLA and concerned government authorities to solve all their grievances.

Free Health check-up camps 189 patients received treatment and free medicines: Vimukti Pothnal
The Vimukti Charitable Trust ® Pothnal, conducted a free health checkup camp, from June 1st 2024 to July 7th 2024 in 20 villages of our working area. On these occasions, Mrs. Shilp, Health Staff gave an awareness talk on health. She spoke about the consumption of healthy food and the need for regular health checkups to care for one’s own health. She highlighted the importance of visiting the doctors especially for women who face a lot of health issues and consult the doctor on their health. Mrs. Jacintha, VCT staff, spoke on the importance of self-care for women. She also spoke on keeping the house and the surroundings clean and tidy or else it would give rise to contagious diseases. There was a strong point made on consumption of vegetables, leafy vegetables, and fruits to prevent Anemia. After which there was a health checkup made. The concerned medicines and syrups were provided. The vehicle for Education, Health and Library necessities from the Vimukti was an aid for these events. Nearly 189 beneficiaries benefited from these health camps.

Carrier Guidance Training Program to youths: Vimukti Pothnal
On 5th of July 2024 Vimukti Pothnal in collaboration with Italian Bishops’ conference Italy, organized carrier guidance program to the youth of Pothnal in its premises. Mr. Charlie the member of Utakanur Gram Panchayat in his address note said that youth who pursue to become future leaders must know the Government plans and benefits of it. They must be aware of social functioning. In the present-day scenario Country has been witnessing many norms and regulations which are against the conscience of people. But despite the opposition, the Government continues to implement them in a hurry. In future these laws and regulations would bring negative results in society. So, the present-day youth must be prepared to face all the challenges in society. Fr Sathish Fernandes the Vimukti Director in his speech encouraged the youth to be great good effective leaders. They must grow towards achieving good things in life. They must be ready to work towards the society and to come together to voice against the evil influences and practices of the society. They must be ready to oppose the Government for their policies which are not people or society friendly. Because the future days are going to be harder than ever. So, we need to change our view of thinking and working. Mr. Gangappa, the resource person of the day, explained about the Panchayat Raj system. Gram Panchayat is a mini parliament where the voices matter and still the resolutions or the suggestions still can come into effect. Every sector is linked to the local Gram Panchayat.

Building Construction workers coming together in demanding for their entitlements: Vimukti Pothnal
the building construction workers came together at vimukti premises on 15th June,2024 to demand the right entitlements from the concerned department. Vimukti found most inter and intra-state migrant building construction workers are illiterate and unskilled, which makes them highly vulnerable to exploitation. Their living conditions are very poor, and the workers stay in small sheds, either at the construction sites/basements, at neighboring vacant sites or on the roadside. Some of the construction workers’ living conditions are often substandard and there is no provision for clean drinking water, toilets, and sanitation. These workers do not have access to fair price shops, or schools for their children. Migrant workers are the most exploited and disenfranchised with no access to their entitlements both at source village and destination city. Plight of migrant/construction workers and their rights become very challenging. Vimukti creates awareness among migrant /construction workers about their entitlements in various sectors such as health, education, finance, social security, and legal aid, and increases access to these entitlements to improve their livelihoods. Nearly 110 workers are benefiting from vimukti interventions.
