April to June 2018

A summer break to look forward to in May. April was very pleasant, lots of intermittent showers which kept things cool.
A few days which were really hot. As expected a few heat exhaustion patients, some diarrheal diseases, few viral fevers. 
Patients continue to meet us daily
June started on a subdued not, with workshops at Rishi Valley School on teaching learning, counseling. The need for counseling services seems to be a felt need.
Projects wise
cVEDA - is up and running. Have made measured progress in ticking off the required numbers. The staff also trained now and are able to keep up with the questionnaires.
Having Amritha Gourisankar overseeing the project, is a huge help. She has really taken charge of the project.
