World Health Day 2022

World Health Day draws attention to a major subject globally. During this pandemic the whole world
struggled with Covid 19 and Omicron, worsening the situation to health hazards like weaknesses,
fatigue etc. Post pandemic, with an increase in diseases and health issues, one can see how polluted
the planet is!

In view of this and to increase the level of oxygen in the air, Minyaan Foundation thought of taking
few small steps by distributing and planting saplings this time. The mission was to clear air pollution
thus preventing diseases due to contamination.

A set of our panel members decided to take such initiatives in possible areas and successfully
completed planting useful trees in and around them with the help of family members and school kids.
This is a commendable job indeed!

Vishva Hindu Parishat- Old Age Home

On 24th January, 2022, as the year started, Minyaan Foundation decided to visit Old age home at Vishva Hindu
Parishat Mulanthuruthy, Ernakulam, Kerala. When we approached them, initially the matron was a bit reluctant
but later realized the concept and, then immediately called out for everyone. It was an incredible experience!

There were approximately fifteen widows and all were happy with the service provided. We decided to explain
the pros and cons of Covid\Omicron cases outside and also explained the benefits of taking the immunity tablets.
The tablets were handed over to the Old age home person in-charge. Considering to improve their immunity
towards this pandemic like Covid 19 and Omicron, the in-charge promised to supply the same to them on a regular
basis. The VHP Kerala State General Secretary, Mr. Rajashekharan was also present and received 300 tablets
supplied by Minyaan Foundation. He further handed over few of them to Mr. Vinod, Administrator Swami
Vivekananda Cultural Society, Kochi, Kerala so that it can be distributed further to the needy.

No words for the sense of gratification we felt today by meeting those old people! Happy to reach out in bits to
the needy!

Arya Anoop, 10 year old with a congenital disease

In the month of September 2021 we came to know that the child Arya Anoop, a girl aged 10 years of a widow in
Kochi, Kerala, was suffering from Osteogenesis Imperfecta which her mother also has suffered. She showed
similar symptoms of her mother like short stature, shortening of both upper and lower limbs, anterior bowing of
forearm and feet etc.

MF decided to visit and authenticate, in order to provide some help to the widow who has joined a facility team
and is a single breadwinner. One of our member in Kochi visited the place and found Arya could not walk without
support and was using a wheel chair. She is good at her studies and gets good marks in mathemathics.

Anoop, her father was an auto driver and was suffering from Kidney problem. Later he got infected with Covid
19 and passed away in 2021 itself. Now his parents are also with Shashikala, Arya’s mother. Due to all these
problems and congenital issues, none of the NGOs were keen to help them. MF started to help Shashikala by
providing for Arya’s treatment in Amrita hospital, Kochi. Later with the medications, she started to show better
results.

This year we met her on 11 th January 2022 and we found that she was able to walk, talk with confidence and
was very cheerful. She was walking without support!

We call it as a medical miracle! The team was so grateful to God and it brought us immense happiness.

GHP – Primary section – Hulimavu Bangalore

Children are more likely to live in poverty than adults. They are also more vulnerable to its effects like food,
sanitation, shelter, health and education. Lack of awareness is one of the major concern!

Minyaan Foundation decided to visit one of the nearby BPL school, the GHP, Hulumavu, Bangalore, Karnataka
on 17th November, 2021.

The team members along with Minyaan Foundation founder visited the place and met all the kids in the school.
MF gifted them stationary items and chocolates. The overwhelming and enthusiastic nature of the children
obliged MF to think of revisiting and make the children more potential.

It was really a pleasant moment!
