Asmita Salve, a 7 year old, 1st std. student of Ramabai Municipal School No.2, Ghatkopar (E) was detected with multi-bacillary leprosy, which is highly infectious. Around this time she was also suffering from early deformity, i.e. clawing of fingers. The disease detection was done by ALERT-INDIA's paramedical team during a routine school survey. Her treatment lasted for a prolonged period as she also suffered from reaction due to her immune response. She had to be administered the stipulated steroid treatment. In addition, she also availed of regular physiotherapy at ALERT's physiotherapy centre. Post this which there was substantial reversal of her deformity.
Now Asmita Salve is completely cured and is in 5th standard. Asmita has been living with her grandmother since her father's demise 5 years ago. Her mother remarried and did not take Asmita along. Both her uncles who were living with the grandmother died of TB. Hence, Asmita is in constant surveillance under ALERT-INDIA's medical team for both leprosy and T.B. The family is far below poverty line. Her grandmother, sole provider, works as a helper in a factory earning Rs.4,000/- per month.
Now Asmita is doing very well in her school. ALERT-INDIA continues to support all her educational requirements. Asmita is one amongst the thousands that ALERT-INDIA is supporting since its inception 34 years ago.
