While the health statistics of rural India continue to be poor, the health status & access to health for the poor in urban slum dwellers has surfaced to be equally deplorable & have less than 4% of government primary healthcare facilities. Urban slum dwellers suffer from adverse health conditions owing to mainly two reasons – first the lack of education & thus lack of awareness; and second the unwillingness to lose a day’s wage in order to reach the nearest medical facility. Healthcare for underprivileged, which is a desperate need, thus remains unaddressed. The need of the hour is thus a two pronged approach – first to bring quality healthcare services to doorsteps of the needy & second to promote healthcare awareness & contemporary healthcare seeking behavior among the underprivileged. Putul Foundation has been undertaking and organizing various free health camps, checkups & Doctor patient’s interactive programmes for the general people.
Putul foundation also endeavours to develop new talents & has a tremendous penchant for improving the extracurricular talents of amateur artists. Not only high in words but also quite adept in its activities, the foundation has mobilized its resources to organise many a events in its short span of existence which has already developed its forte and underlined its emphatic presence.
Smt. Sunaina Verma Memorial Cricket Tournament which will soon see its fourth edition is an invitation tournament and having started on a soft note has soon become a talked about and sought after tournament of Patna in the winter season. Some of the best teams of the country with star studded Ranji Trophy players are participating in it and Moinhul Haq Stadium has been staging this coveted tournament amidst fanfare, tremendous enthusiasm from the audience and sport being played in its true spirit. Some of the most fancied business houses support and sponsor this tournament with an intention to improve with every step. This endeavour is going an extra mile in giving a facelift towards improving the status of game in Patna.
Under the aegis of Putul Foundation, an annual magazine named “Sewanjali” is published every year & is normally brought out on the occasion of its foundation day. Sewanjali gives an opportunity for the budding writers, poets, cartoonists etc.. to exhibit their unattended talents.
Community service has always been a regular fixture all through in this beautiful journey of the foundation. Donation of Lawn Mowers is one of the initiatives taken up by the foundation.
Putul Foundation has successfully organised a Police Public Relation conclave in which several experienced speakers representing various facets of profession participated and delivered lectures. The event was very successful and invigorated this sensitive topic. Few Police officers were rewarded & acknowledged for their untiring efforts in extraordinarily executing their duties.
