New Delhi: Veronica Singh is a 25-year-old health volunteer from the village of Chalakdih, Jharkhand. When a family in her village refused to vaccinate their child due to a mild fever, Singh and her friend, Vandana Kalindi, resolutely fought to get the child immunized. When the two women refused to back down, they were threatened by parents in the village armed with sticks. Eventually, the duo was not only successful in changing the parents’ minds, but also began holding regular discussions with women in the village on health and sanitation issues.
