Increasing Health Awareness

Ɖorgovska mahala, Serbia

 

My name is Snezana. I work as a Transformational Community Development (TCD) trainer in Ɖorgovska mahala. We are going through a difficult period again due to the coronavirus and the increasing number of patients. We have worked to keep people well informed about the virus, including the mode of transmission and prevention. There is fear in a larger number of people. Socialising is limited due to the virus, but this offers a great opportunity for education through the TCD programme. 

 

Smilja is a 67-year-old widow with two sons. She suffered a stroke three years ago and is a part of the TCD programme. She is grateful that the programme enabled her to adopt healthy habits and take care of her diet and health, and presently there are no symptoms of the condition. Smilja is independent and regularly takes medication and reports to the health institution. She is interested in applying her handicraft skills of crocheting to teach young Roma women the skill so that they can provide for themselves and earn an income for their families.

 

Thank you!
