The story of Jesiah
Through the Jesiah work, we aim to provide an environment of safety and belonging for the communities from the North East, who often face discrimination and prejudices in the city, as well as for migrants and the urban poor who live on the streets.
We provide primary medical care, facilitate hospital visits, and provide counselling to those struggling with drug addiction and/or recovering from an abusive background. We provide care and support for those suffering from TB & HIV/Aids.
Jesiah runs a health center in a locality in South Delhi. We distribute TB treatment and provide six-month follow-up to patients referred to us by the government DOT centre. We do weekly outreach and house visits in the community to build relationships and provide health education.
We run a mobile dispensary and conduct regular street outreaches across the city to provide medical care and free medicines to those living under flyovers, on the roadside, or in slum areas. We counsel pregnant women and young mothers and refer them to government dispensaries for their children’s immunizations. We organize street medical camps.
Our goal is to invest in each life, plant new seeds of hope and restoration, and help people find strength in themselves, take responsibility for their families, and make healthy choices for their future.
