Udayan Update – Easter 2023
This Easter, Udayan has kindly shared an update with City of Joy Aid, UK and its donors. On behalf of Udayan and City of Joy Aid, UK thank you for your continued support to the poorest of the poor.
Udayan Vidyalaya currently has 136 children from KG to Class IV and the remaining 134 children go to nearby Government schools for Classes V to XII.
City of Joy Aid, UK donors have enabled us to provide quality medical services for the children. The 8 bedded Fred Kahl Health Centre for Boys and 6 bedded Fred Kahl Health Facility for Girls helped the children during an outbreak of chicken pox after their 2022 summer holiday. The isolation treatment protected the rest of the children. Dr Arpan Saha (paediatrician) and Dr Sucheta Biswas (gynaecologist) visit weekly to check all the children individually and prescribe medicines as needed. The nurse and paramedical worker provide medicine for the children and regularly monitor their Body Mass Index by measuring height & weight. Altogether 64 children have benefitted from the health facility in the financial year 2022-23, for the treatment of seasonal fevers, ear infections, skin diseases and other minor illness.
