On February 3, 2016, Team Nanhi Jaan took the initiative to streamline the patients coming to the paediatric emergency at PGI. Based on the inputs given by Dr Jayshree Muralidharan and Dr Arun Bansal from the department, a system has been formalized wherein patients would be categorised into different levels depending on their presenting condition. They would be issued numbered slips to prevent commotion in the emergency. The slips have been provided by Nanhi Jaan. This would also help to estimate the percentage of patients in each category and the percentage needing admission.

The start of the New Year brings with it new hopes, aspirations and a wish for a better tomorrow. In this spirit, Veeranwali Foundation, under Project Nanhi Jaan, took up the critical issue of neonatal mortality in GMSC-16. The hospital was facing an acute shortage of baby incubators and phototherapy units, and our team  installed 14 units in GMSH 16. This has helped in considerably reducing mortality in this age group. The mortality rate is down from 12/1000 kids to 1/1000 kids after the supply of baby incubators. A high-end ventilator, with an ABG machine worth  ₹14 lakh, donated by Nanhi Jaan, a project of Veeranwali Foundation, was officially inaugurated on 7 January 2016 by Mr Anurag Aggarwal, Home Secretary, Chandigarh.

On January 1, 2016, Team Nanhi Jaan celebrated New Year with children at village Masol – a village that despite being in the vicinity of Chandigarh lacks basic amenities. The land is arid and people work as labourers. Children are malnourished, under clothed and lack poor hygiene. Addiction is rampant and kids as young as 10 smoke. There is no dispensary and no motorable road leading to the village. We  distributed warm clothes, shoes, socks, stationary and goodies to children and have decided to adopt this village to help improve the level of awareness among the residents towards educating their children, bettee hygeine, etc. The event was covered by NDTV – CLICK HERE to see the TV report.
