Empowering Health in the Slums: Lalta Prasad’s Journey with Asha

Empowering Health in the Slums: Lalta Prasad’s Journey with Asha

Lalta Prasad, a native of UP, has been a resident of the Kusumpur Pahari slum for the last 40 years. In 2012, he unexpectedly lost his job as an office assistant at Corporate House in BPL. With two children to support, life became challenging, especially after Lalta underwent a lung operation in 1995, leading to asthma complications.

Financial strains forced Lalta to neglect proper medication, worsening his condition. During the COVID pandemic, his health made him high risk. Recognizing his situation, members of the Asha Mahila Mandal promptly intervened, connecting him with a senior nurse practitioner at Asha.
Under their guidance, Lalta received regular medication, follow-ups, and support with breathing exercises and a balanced diet.

With their assistance, he was provided with a home-based nebulization facility, enabling him to manage breathing difficulties effectively. With continuous treatment, his overall health and quality of life

has improved significantly. He is deeply grateful for the support he receives from the Asha family.
