THE STORY:

every one loves the look and feel of marble. however it is not well known, that the miners who work in those stone mines frequently suffer from silicosis with dust exposure during mining. This causes scarring of lungs and the miners get short of breath and can succumb to the disease. in addition the silicosis of lungs also predispose the person to tuberculosis and often the combined burden of the two diseases causes shortening of life span.one such area is in Rajasthan , India where the incidence of silicosis and tuberculosis is very high in the mining community. interestingly, however, adequate preventive measures and proper medical surveillance can preserve these miners lungs and allow them to breathe better and live longer. the current project proposal is to raise about $5000 to identify and medically screen about 1000 miners in Rajasthan. the parent organization Gramin Vikas Vigyan Samiti( G V V S) has been working in that area for over three decades. their website is : http://www.gravis.org.in current project proposal has come to India Development Service, USA and we are looking for funds to support this very worthy cause.
