Missing Infrastructure: Pregnant women vaccinated, undergo check-ups in an open field

In Pundag village of Ranchi district, the absence of an Anganwadi Centre in the village means that pregnant women are forced to undergo check-ups and are vaccinated in an open field. “We aren’t comfortable undergoing check-ups in the open. We have to put up curtains to make ourselves comfortable or travel too far,” says a woman who delivered a baby recently. She also says that she was unable to get nutrition facilities due the absence of an Anganwadi centre in her village. Since 2010, villagers have appealed to the authorities to put in place an Anganwadi centre in the village. However, their repeated appeals have gone unheard. Nirmala Ekka reports

Please call the Child Development Project Officer, Ormanjhi Block, Jharkhand on +91 9431391110 and appeal to him to set up Anganwadi centre in Pundag village.
