Singrauli is a hilly mining zone isolated from the world for various socio-demographic reasons and also communication.
The best facilities are in any case accessible at a distance of 6 to 8 hours of travel.
With limited resources and trying conditions of poverty the  poor often the labour class remains exposed to quacks or touts in various domains including healthcare.
while modern medicine facilities do keep coming up there is a dearth of ayurvedic facilities and affordable low cost treatments.
Why Ayurveda finds a special purpose here is because this zone presents with alot of low back injuries in the labour class, alot of mineral depletion or substitution in the body and also for various reasons a strong exposure to autoimmune conditions and immune compromization.
Ayurveda over the recent history has shown immence progress in providing effective support and any facility backed by and Ayurvedic model will definitely do well for the people.
Yet at times the cost of treatments may not be affordable and hence will need to be covered in some form or the other.
Since these people are mostly ignorant and vary of insurance the available option is subsidized healthcare.
This is achievable if people who vouch for ayurveda and promote the same come together to provide a facility which can provided treatments at discounted costs.
Hope this helps understand a gist of the conditions in this place.
I am not sharing any cost files because costs of medicines remain variable but the needs are consistent.
I do promise to share details with donors upon the usage of the money they donate for this fundraiser.

Lecture 5 - Cerebral edema

Lecture 5 - Cerebral edema
Cerebral edema is excess accumulation of fluid in the intracellular or extracellular spaces of the brain. It is characterized by certain changes in morphology with the brain becoming soft and smooth and oedema fluid overfills the cranial vault. Gyri (ridges) become flattened, sulci (grooves) become narrowed, and ventricular cavities become compressed.
Physiologically it may be characterized by nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, faintness, and in severe cases, seizures and coma. If brain herniation occurs, respiratory symptoms or respiratory arrest can also occur due to compression of the respiratory centers in the pons and medulla oblongata.
Causes – Cerebral edema can result from brain trauma or from non-traumatic causes such as ischemic stroke, cancer, or brain inflammation due to meningitis or encephalitis.
Vasogenic edema caused by amyloid-modifying treatments, such as monoclonal antibodies, is known as ARIA-E (amyloid-related imaging abnormalities edema).
The blood–brain barrier (BBB) or the blood–cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) barrier may break down, allowing fluid to accumulate in the brain's extracellular space.
Altered metabolism may cause brain cells to retain water, and dilution of the blood plasma may cause excess water to move into brain cells.
Fast travel to high altitude without proper acclimatization can cause high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE).
