Provide monthly rations to a person who is HIV positive, INR 1000

Neptune Foundation provides Nutritional Supplements to people afflicted with HIV. These are the people who are taking the ART treatment from BMC. Basically they are treated at the BMC clinics for medication. It is very important that people suffering with HIV must have good immunity and nutritional supplement is the best way to boost it. Vijay Krida Mandal is an NGO, which helps them with medications through BMC, and is also working on creating awareness. With their help Neptune Foundation identifies the needy people on ART and gives them rations. This programme has been taken up with the aim to provide rations and protein supplements to HIV positive people, who include pregnant mothers who are HIV, positive as well, as a Nutritional Supplement Support Programme for patients under ART Treatment from the BMC. The ration is generally brought from local shops and distributed during the monthly meeting, which these people attend at BMC Mulund Maternity Hospital premises.

Ek nayi shuruaat- A new start
Reena was all shattered when she realized that she was suffering from a life threatening disease. She was diagnosed, as HIVpositive and she didn’t know what to do and how to carry forward the life. She thought that she had reached the point in life from where she had no way to move forward. She was getting medicines from local BMC hospital but she was completely shattered and saw no point in having it regularly. She used to work as a labourer on daily wages. She had to leave her work as her health condition made it difficult for her to go for work regularly for long hours; which lead to a situation where she found it difficult to get 2 meals every day. She was told by BMC doctors to have good diet so that medicines could work well. But she was unable to deal with her situation. She became very depressed.
The Neptune Community Social Worker contacted Reena. During the first meeting, the social worker realized that she was very depressed and weak. She was in need of emotional support. She was also in need of a proper diet, which could take care of her health. Reena was enrolled in the monthly Ration programme of Neptune Foundation. She started getting her monthly ration of dal, rice, wheat, sugar, oil, tea powder, pulses, protein powder and vitamin supplements. She started feeling better. The community social worker could see small change in her. She was more outgoing and was open for counseling. With regular counseling and better health condition, she regained her confidence. She decided to begin her life anew.
One day she expressed a wish to the community social worker that she would like to reach out to other women affected by HIV like her and help give them emotional support. She had nutritional support from Neptune Foundation so she could afford to work for fewer hours. She wanted to utilize her time in helping others. She felt that the emotional support from the community social worker and nutritional support from Neptune Foundation gave her a new ray of hope in her life. Today she is a role model for other women and men in her community and the other communities where she goes and talks to people about how to live a normal life in spite of suffering from HIV.
