In Bastar, Chattisgarh Rest Of My Family has partnered with Dr. Ramchandra and
who have dedicated their lives to improving the health and wellbeing of the
tribes residing in the
region for almost 20 years.
Through this collaboration we have been providing financial and
administrative support to the
project in order to ensure that we have all the necessary diagnostic
equipment, medicines and man
power for effective implementation.
There are two key components of our project.
1. Medical Camp Drive (M.C.D)
Since July 2017, 2 medical camps have been conducted every month in
different villages of Bastar
region. Through these camps we have been able to diagnose and treat over
5,000 patients who have
little or no access to public or private healthcare.
Every camp consists of 6 key steps as shown below:

In order to conduct 2 medical camps every month at the cost of 50,000 INR per
camp, the total
annual budget is 12,00,000 INR per year.
The breakdown of the costs is as shown below:
2. Anemia Alleviation Scheme (A.A.S)
There is rampant malnutrition and anemia among the local communities. Most
elders and children
complain of issues that are directly or indirectly a result of severe,
prolonged malnutrition. With
age, prolonged malnutrition leads to compromised immune system and can lead
to many health
issues and diseases that can be hard to cure and can sometimes be fatal.
Hence, it became very clear
that Malnutrition and anemia need to be detected and cured in children at a
relatively young age.
With this in mind A.A.S was started in 2021 with the goal of providing
nutritional and medical
support to anemic children. Under this scheme 2 batches consisting of 50
children each will be
treated and given nutritional supplements for a period of 5 months every
year. Key steps of A.A.S
are as follows.
The first batch consisted of of 31 children from Korkoti, Bhatpal and Benglur
villages and has been
completed successfully. Below are the cases of 2 children that were part of
the first batch.

The second batch with 50 children is all set to begin in October 2021.
The cost per child is 3,750 INR and thus each batch of 50 students needs a
budget amount of
1,87,500 INR. Hence the annual budget for 2 batches is 3,75,000 INR.
Breakdown of individual
cost is as shown below.
