Every monthly donation helps more women like Ruby access gynecology care
Ruby Shaikh lives in Chikhalwadi, Govandi. She has 3 children. With her husband being unemployed she was the sole breadwinner of the family. Ruby ran a takeaway lunch catering service for a living. She developed heavy vaginal discharge, abdominal pain and was frequently ill.
Societal taboo made her uncomfortable to seek help and she suffered in silence. She was also worried that if she was hospitalized she would lose her sustenance. During a regular home visit, an Apnalaya health worker met Ruby who confided about her problems. She was advised to come to the clinic. The doctor started her treatment.
Ruby regularly visited the Apnalaya Gynaecology clinic and completed her treatment course. She is now healthy and has resumed work completely.
