  5. 5. Cairn India – CSR InitiativesRespect | Relationships | Responsibility East Godavari is primarily an agricultural district and is among the most prosperous districts in the state. Statistically, it is a potential hinterland for hydrocarbon reserves in the country, as many locations in the Godavari Basin have been identified as rich sources for oil and natural gas in the country. In sharp contrast to the district, Surasaniyanam is one of the most backward villages. Its population is mainly engaged in agriculture, prawn fishing and petty labour.A majority of women across the country aredenied even the basic dignity and humanrespect of having the provision of individualtoilets.
  6. 6. Cairn India – CSR InitiativesRespect | Relationships | Responsibility Health and Sanitation As per statistics, crimes against women in smaller villages and towns are mostly committed when they step out in the open fields due to absence of toilets in their vicinity. Cairn designed and implemented a total sanitation programme in the village. The investment made to construct individual toilets is much higher than the national average. Women in the village feel these toilets have helpedrestore their dignity. They no longer have to step out in fear and it has helped improve hygienepractices in the village.Cairn has created infrastructure for storage of potable water and has implemented a model fordistribution of safe drinking water to individual households in collaboration with the Panchayat.Our intervention on health in Ravva has been related to both preventive and curative care atdifferent levels. Cairn runs a clinic in Surasaniyanam, which addresses the primary healthcareneeds of the community in the village and other neighbouring villages. Apart from an Out PatientDepartment (OPD), facility Cairn also provides round-the-clock emergency services. Healthcamps are also organised from time to time with focus on specific health issues. Absence of state of the art healthcare facility in the vicinity of Surasaniyanam resulted in a lot of health related problems being left unaddressed.
