A Quick Response

Dhaniya, 6, living in Basin Bridge, Chennai was suffering from constant fever and cold. Her parents took her to a private hospital by for treatment. The doctors diagnosed it as a normal fever but in time, her health took a turn for the worse. When our health department held a general medical camp at Basin Bridge, Dhaniya was brought to the doctor. The doctor advised the parents to take her to the hospital immediately as she might have dengue. They also suggested for her brother Tharun, 4, to be taken as well, since he also showed symptoms of the infection.

The two children were taken to a government hospital and treated for Dengue. Dengue has become a common occurrence in many parts of India. The number of dengue cases reported to the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme (NVBDCP) has increased over the years, especially that of children. Our focus in the health department is to always help individuals in the community like Dhaniya to diagnose the sickness immediately and receive the right treatment as soon as possible.

Dear friends and patrons,As 2022 draws to a close, I would like for us to look back at a year that heralded in new directions for Oasis India: year one of the 5-year strategic plan of new partnerships, a year of social enterprise, and organisational sustainability.While it was certainly challenging in many ways, it also showed how strong our commitment to the vision and mission are as an organisation – be it as board members, supporters, members of senior management, the national leadership team, or project staff.We can take pride in the fact that we resumed the annual Mukthi Bike Challenge this year, launched Oasis India’s 5-year strategic plan for 2022–2027, and started a new integrated community empowerment project in Assam—Oasis Academy Guwahati and Football for Life (FFL). We also initiated potential partnership discussions with PCI-Mizoram for anti-human trafficking and Thrive for Good under food security, etc. These great achievements lays the foundation for our work in the upcoming new year.There were notable life-changing stories of beneficiaries in each of Oasis India’s hubs and the many other challenges we overcame as a team. Successes achieved in a time when we were forced to adapt to very adverse circumstances So, I want to thank all our staff for the hard work and commitment they have shown over the past year. Our combined strength is what makes us flourish as an organisation.Thank you, our supporters, for walking this journey of growth and development hand in hand with us. As you celebrate Christmas with friends and family, I hope you will look back on the year with the same sense of accomplishment and joy that we all feel at Oasis India.I wish you and your family a happy Christmas season and a prosperous 2023! Best regards,Mangneo LhungdimExecutive Director,Oasis India
