People living around the town of Sauraha and in the Tharu villages are in a marginal income group. Due to the lack of education and finances, they do not have regular check-ups. The nearest Hospitals are 20 k away and it is difficult and expensive to travel. They go to hospital only when they are completely ill. Sometimes it is too late, causing more serious illnesses and sometimes death.
