I lead a healthier life and I’m no longer anaemic."

SHAKUNTALA’S STORY

Shakuntala, a coolie worker, residing in Thirupulivanam Panchayat in Kancheepuram District used to experience frequent bouts of headache and complain of fatigue. She attended our anaemia camp organised in Thirupulivanam. Her haemoglobin count was found to be 7.8, much below the normal average value of 12. She was prescribed medication and advised to modify her diet to include more green leafy vegetables and other iron-rich food. Shakuntala diligently followed the advice. In a few weeks’ time, she started to feel the difference. Today, a healthier Shakuntala is able to do her household chores with ease.
