D.B. Kuppe PHC staff, ASHA workers get solar lamps

July 23, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: Moved by a report in Star of Mysore on the plight of ASHA workers and health volunteers who are trying to protect the health of tribals in D.B. Kuppe range of Nagarahole Tiger Reserve, two senior citizens from Bengaluru have distributed the solar lamps with mobile chargers for them.

On June 24, SOM had published a report titled ‘Healthcare workers brave wildlife to save tribals from virus’. The report had highlighted how a team from D.B. Kuppe Primary Health Centre (PHC) comprising three health volunteers, four ASHA workers and one Anganwadi worker was on a mission to save people from COVID-19 by trekking several kilometres covering 11 haadis (tribal hamlets) and 13 villages on the forest border in Nagarahole National Park. This has reduced the fear of Coronavirus in villages. 

Seeing this story, Shanmugam Kuppeswamy, an alumni of IIT Madras and Solarcell Consultant, and a resident of HSR Layout, and Dhananjaya Kollur, a former employee of IIT Kharagpur, who is also a software consultant and a resident of Koramangala in Bengaluru, donated solar lamps with mobile charges for the PHC staff as well as to ASHA workers and the staff nurses. A demonstration on the operation of solar lamps was also given to them.
