Former Mayor of Nagpur Sandip Joshi would be distributing healthcard to children of 200 families of Nagpur who have either lost one or both parents to COVID-19 infection.

Joshi would be distributing the same on the occasion of former Chief Minister of Maharashtra and current Leader of Opposition (LoP) Devendra Fadnavis birthday tomorrow (Wednesday, July 22).

The healthcard would ensure the children get all healthcare facilities and treatment from doctors on the panel.

Joshi along with Shri Siddhivinayak Seva Trust, under Project Sobat Palakatva? have undertaken the responsibility of the same.

When Nation Next spoke to Sandip Joshi, he said, You can say we’ve adopted the children of 200 families across Nagpur. It’s just that they’re not staying with us. But, we’re taking care of their education, nutrition, counselling, health and several other aspects.”

He said, “The Centre and the state government have promised to provide an aid of ₹10 lakhs and rupees five lakh respectively to each bereaved family. The government is certainly taking care of their future, which is a great initiative but what about their present??


He elaborated, For an instance, a nursing mother in Nagpur lost her husband due to COVID-19 infection. She couldn’t lactate her child; she reached out to us for help. When my staff went there to provide her the required food for her baby, he saw her crying inconsolably in an eight by eight room! Such is their condition.


He added, We are going to provide school text books to students, pay their fees, take responsibility of young girls till they get married. The only exception is that we won’t include salaried people who earn more than ₹15,000 per month, people who would receive pension above ₹25,000 or are employed by government.

Speaking further, Joshi added, We’re also focusing on skill development. We’re even providing e-rickshaw to select people tomorrow so that they can become financially independent. I’m glad we have such a noble and varied panel of doctors that include gynaecologists, neurosurgeons, psychiatrists, physicians, etc., who voluntarily got associated with us.

The panel comprises Dr Raj Gajbhiye, Dr Vaidehi Marathe, Dr Sudhir Bhave, Dr Shilpa Bhoyar, Dr Sandip Paraskar, Dr Seema Dande, Dr Pramod Giri, Dr Sushma Deshmukh, Dr Kamal Bhutada, Dr Suhas Deshpande and Dr Prabodh.
