Village healthcare workers were replenished with sufficient POD (Prevention of Disabilities) supplies and tools; 4 crutches and 138 pairs of protective shoes were dispatched to PALs in need, alongside other protective tools.
As winter comes, cases of chapped skin and burn injuries have been increased. Most of the PALs are sensory impaired and unable to feel heat. This often results in burns, especially during winter. Project staff and healthcare workers continuously conduct household safety education for PALs to help them protect themselves from burn injuries as which often develop into ulcers.
