ACTIVITIES

Glucose Supplements in Puri, Odisha

Based on a request from a corporate group, WorkMatterz facilitated distribution of Glucon-D to some very poor abandoned people (especially women & children) in coastal Odisha during the summer when many were suffering from dehydration, sunstroke and other illnesses due to excessive heat and humidity. A field monitoring of this project was conducted by WorkMatterz recently and it was a pleasure to see the joy and relief among those who benefited from this small but very meaningful project for the poor. This project was carried out at an NGO called Nilachal Seva Sansthan based in Kanas in Puri district.
