The advised / diagnosed cases for cataract surgery were taken to Sadhuram Eye hospital on the same day for admission and operated on the next day after completing the required tests and ensuring that they are fit for surgery.
They were dropped back home after the surgery the next day. The KMRF team took the operated villagers from Aziznagar for a review check up to the hospital and brought them back home that ensured that all the patients are recovering better with good vision for which they were operated for cataract.
It will not be an exaggeration in admitting the fact that the KMRF—team took a task of convincing each and every affected case and advised for cataract to take up the surgery as most of them did not have people to go with them or to give any moral support. As they being senior citizens and aged were in need of regular persistent motivation for encouragement and make them feel easy without any fear or hesitation.

Ongoing project under healthcare program
Immunization Program & TETRA—Project
The Immunization program that has been started from June, 2008 is an ongoing program with KMR Foundation with the aim of targeting infant and children up to 18 months old through a comprehensive healthcare system and with the help of a software program developed.
The data software has the data of entire village to monitor and maintain 100% immunization of every child that was born. We collaborate with the primary health centres of villages in Moinabad Mandal with the “ alert report” showing the data of default and delayed cases in immunization of villages.
The foundation has thus adopted 37 villages in Moinabad Mandal for this program and developed data for the each and every village. The mapping of villages under GIS-has also been done for the 37 villages that enables to track the location of the houses for default cases. KMRF-healthcare team engages regularly in motivation of the parents of default cases just before the active immunization day or on the day of immunization to take the children to the health centre for vaccination. Sometime the team takes them by KMRF-transport to rach the health centre in case they live far away from the health centre.
A 100% immunization goal
Our area of focus covers health care of children and expectant mothers through a comprehensive healthcare system to
- Enable 100% immunization of all village children.
- Collaborate with Primary health centres for vaccination on due dates.
- Visit village homes and motivate parents to maintain the due dates of immunization.
- Monitor expectant mothers from the fifth month of pregnancy till the first month after delivery through village Anganwadi workers.
- Promote institutional deliveries rather than home deliveries to reduce infant mortality by constant education and encouragement.
- Report to hospitals for referral services, expert advice and treatment.
The KMR team works with individual villagers for immunization of children on due dates.
After initialization of our program in Aziznagar village in 2008, our program has been expanded in phases to cover other villages in the region. In the first phase we covered 10 villages.
The expansion program that we embarked in 2010 to cover all 38 villages in Moinabad Mandal has been completed with software update of data by 2013.
In partnership with Government health centres and with persistent effort and commitment on our end we were able to reach our set goal of achieving 100% immunization in every village.
A data survey program is conducted every six months to keep abreast of any new information like new birth, new marriage, addition in family and change of house and immigrants details in addition to routine visit of defaulters for motivation, update of data on immunization, antenatal and delivery information. The entire village data update with data survey program is also a routine work undertaken by the KMRF team.
