Distribution of Fruits, Breads and Milk to the patients in Govt Hospital

We have conducted this program with public donations generated locally. We have spent Rs.15000/- on this program. On 10-12-2014, we have distributed the fruits, breads to 50 pregnant women & tuberculosis patients in Government General Hospital, Kurnool, who comes from remote rural villages and other districts. They are not able to take nutritious food, due to absolute poverty. GWE identified this gap and decided to distribute the fruits and breads to them. This program helped the patients to recover quickly.
