Surekha Sunil Sakpal is our trained Swades Mitra working in Nandgaon Gram Panchayat of Mahad block from the last 4 years. Her resilience and commitment in looking after each and every household from the 4 villages in the Panchayat is long appreciated by the villagers. A middle aged villager Ganesh Dagadu who had gone to Surat for work was suffering from incessant cold and fever for months. He relied on home remedies but to no avail. This also hampered his work as he couldn’t continue it comfortably. When Surekha understood this, she immediately called him back to Nandgaon and upon seeing his bad condition, villagers felt he won’t survive for long.
Surekha escorted him to the primary health centre (PHC) at Pachad from Mahad block and the medical officer upon inspection, diagnosed him of having tuberculosis. Surekha took him back home and ensured he took his medicines and checked on him every day till he was cured. Ganesh is now happy and out of danger and has resumed working. His entire village community is all praise for Surekha’s relentless pursuit in saving Ganesh. A shining example of selfless service by Surekha who has done us all proud.
