We deeply regret the untimely demise of our 2010 CHLP batch fellow Mr.Hanumantappa who hailed from Davangere, Karnataka, a B.Com graduate. He was associated with the Karnataka chapter of the People’s Health Movement (PHM), the Jana Arogya Andolana – Karnataka (JAA-K). His focus of work was on issues related to Disability, Right to Information Act, HIV/AIDS, TB and NREGA. He claimed the Community Health Learning Programme (CHLP) of SOCHARA helped him gain in-depth understanding on the issues of migration, right to food, right to livelihoods and right to health. Post fellowship he continued to work in Davangere to support people’s struggles for their rights. Recently we met him during the sanitation workshop on ‘Access to toilets: Mental Health and Gender Perspectives’ held on 18-19th September 2014. He will continue to inspire us in our work on the rights issues. May his soul rest in peace.
