ii. Ambulance Service for villages : Parivaar has started 24 hours Ambulance services for the population in the adjoining rural areas. Since there were no hospitals in the nearby area, all patients in critical condition have to be taken to hospitals in Kolkata. General village population used to face enormous hardship in taking the patients to hospitals in the city at odd hours with no means of public or private transport available at such times. Now they can avail of Parivaar’s Ambulance services.
iii. Monthly Foodstock Scheme for old and ailing villagers : In our Panchayat area and adjoining Panchayas, 700 old and ailing persons are under Monthly Foodstock Scheme, i.e. they receive a stipulated quantity of rice, dal (lentils), oil etc. required for the month, and medical help (with medicines etc) when required. These persons are not in a position to fend for themselves, nor do they have any family support. A large number of them are old widows, and around 100 are old women who in their youth were victims of flesh trade but now in old age undergo tremendous suffering as being devoid of family or relatives, they do not have anyone to look after them.
