ANM's Journey in Transforming Lives
P. Sujatha's life was not an easy one. Born to P. Joginaidu and P. Tulasi, she faced the challenges of being married to a husband addicted to alcohol. His addiction affected her and their children's lives in many negative ways, and tragically, he passed away due to his addiction in 2018. However, Sujatha found strength in her struggles and emerged as a beacon of hope in her community.
In November 2019, Sujatha was appointed as a Sachivalayam ANM in Munagapaka Mandal's Patipalli village, where she provided her services with utmost dedication. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, she continued to serve the people, and her efforts were appreciated by the villagers.
In 2022, under the Vimukthi Pilot Project, lead by Joint Collector, Anakapalli where efforts were made by stakeholders across to run an alcohol de-addiction program. The cause resonated deeply with Sujatha, who was inspired by the vision of a better society free from addictions. Sujatha and her team worked tirelessly to implement the Vimukthi deaddiction program, visiting homes and counseling families affected by alcohol addiction. Their efforts were not in vain, as many people stopped consuming alcohol and improved their lives, much to the delight of their families.
P.Sujatha's dedication towards her job has made her an inspiration to many in her community. She continues to meet alcohol-addicted people regularly and gives them the necessary medication. Her efforts have not only impacted the lives of the individuals she has helped but also the families of those individuals.
Sujatha's story is a testament to the power of perseverance and determination in the face of adversity. She showed that with hard work and dedication, even the toughest challenges can be overcome. As the famous quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe goes, "Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn." Sujatha's story is a true example of this quote, and her efforts have undoubtedly made a lasting impact on her community.
