Villages do not have access to life saving equipment
Villages in rural india have limited access to healthcare due to long distance to travel for hospitals. The local health centers don't always have life-saving equipment in working condition. Lives are lost due to the lack of basic medical facilities.
Saving more lives with the available resources
Ekam works to empower communities at grassroots level and improve medical care, access to treatment quickly to those in need. Ekam provides supplies, training of nurses and payment for treatment, to those in need.
A survey of needs revealed that to run the lab, the village primary health center needs a Centrifuge for blood tests, suction apparatus and an EKG machine. This will help the medical staff diagnose and treat patients appropriately and in a timely fashion. Ekam is helping to raise fund
