IMPLEMENTATION OF THE PROJECT
ROTARY CLUB OF KANPUR GREATER took note of
this scurge encompassing the city of Kanpur and launched the RCKG TB CLINIC in 2004 at 16/95,Pratap Sons Compound, Mall Road ,Kanpur- every Tuesday from 11 am to 12.30 noon After consultation with various experts the weakest link was identified in the Management of Tuberculosis – DISCONTINUATION OF MEDICATION DUE TO LACK OF AWARENESS & INABILITY TO AFFORD THE MEDICINES OVER THE WHOLE PRESCRIBED COURSE OF TREATMENT
ADMINISTRATION We have on our panel about twenty prominent
doctors who screen and send their ‘poorest of the poor’ patient to the RCKG T.B.Clinic. The patient is counselled and given branded drugs as per the doctors prescription on a fortnightly basis. In the first year itself we started off with 50 patients The programme is entirely monitored by the Annes of the Club, who come rain or storm, to personally distribute the medicines to every patient on all Tuesday throughout the year.
FINANCES The finances were arranged by contributions from the
parent Club, private donations and from Rotary Club of Umea Sodra, Sweden. In the year 2008, it was a great honour for our Club & District to get a Matching Grant of USD 52,500 (Project No.63284) for this prestigious project from Rotary International for a period of two years. With approx:
USD 17,500 from internal sources USD 17,500 from Rotary Club Of Umea Sodra ,Sweden USD 17,500 from Matching Grant - Rotary International,
We had a comfortable corpus of USD 52,500 for two years(USD 26,250 per year) for our patients.
GRAPHS (contd) YEARWISE EXPENSE TILL DATE (USD) 30,000.00 25,000.00 20,000.00 15,000.00 10,000.00 5,000.00 0.00
Present Status The Matching Grant Programme ended in January,
2010, the completion report of which has been submitted and accepted by Rotary International after a detailed scrutiny of the accounts and working of the programme. Over 700 patients successfully treated till date. The fate of the hundreds of MDR & Tuberculosis patients now hangs in uncertainity. USD 6500 can be arranged from our sources annually. This is only barely enough to sustain treatment of the already registered Tuberculosis Patients.
ď‚— All MDR Patients will have to turned away ď‚— No new T.B. Patient can be taken up for
APPEAL Our fervent appeal to Rotary clubs of Future Vision
Districts , to step in and financially support this project for 3 years as an International Partner for Global Grant for USD 65,200 total (1/3rd contribution from each partner). So that the hundreds of helpless patients may be treated. Your kind intervention will be in true Rotary Spirit of ‘Service to Mankind’ It will also be an encouragement to our Rotarians & Anne’s who are working tirelessly in this amazing venture, Appreciation from the prominent Doctors, Citizens and Indian Medical Association & Rotary International.
