Roshni is looking ahead to build a healthy stronger community in coming days. Apart from deficiency of nutrition, potable drinking water and curative medicines, non-accessibility to immediate medical support adds to the misery of community members. Many hamlets of Hangal have already become the victims of HIV/AIDS.
To support the health needs of the people Roshni provides curative and preventive health care support through its dispensary as well as mobile clinic. Programmes are designed to provide access and referrals to both Government and community based resources. Also community awareness on hygiene, safe drinking water, sustainable health conditions are providedthrough awareness songs, street plays, slogan writings and rally. Free health care and eye care camps are conducted in collaboration with other charitable groups. This is a small step taken by Roshni in building a healthy hygiene society by promoting Physical and Psychological wellbeing all around.
