Matilda Kullu, a 45-year-old woman, has been enlisted among Forbes strongest women personalities in the country. She is an Accredited Social Health Activist (ASHA) worker belonging to Sundargarh district located in Odisha. Matilda is truly the best example of women empowerment. Despite belonging to a small district, she has emerged out as the ideal for many women living in small areas or villages. Ever since the Forbes India W-Power 2021 list was announced, netizens are searching about who is Matilda Kullu and what has she done to secure a spot in the popular American business magazine.
Kullu is an ASHA worker who has been working for the last 15 years in Gargadbahal village in Baragapn of Sundergarh District. Talking about her work, Matilda has been instrumental in bringing the healthcare system closer to the people residing in the rural village of Gargadbahal. However, the worker was oblivious of the fact that she has managed to get herself enlisted in Forbes. She spent her Saturday like her yet another usual day where she attended a vaccination programme, doorstep health checkup of newborns, sector meeting, and other routine works. Her immense dedication towards the rural people has really made the country proud.
Who is Matilda Kullu?
Naveen Patnaik, Chief Minister of Odisha, even congratulated the ASHA worker for her dedication and achievement. The minister congratulated Matilda for representing thousands of dedicated Covid Warriors who have always been at the forefront to save lives. Apart from this, Matilda has also been complimented for her exemplary services in the fight against the ongoing novel virus by the local administration. Let us inform you that Matilda did not hesitate to serve just a day after getting infected with the said virus.
The worker had said that when the virus outbreak led the people to remain indoors, it became her duty to provide all the infected people with proper treatment and to ensure that they get the complete knowledge of the virus and take proper precautions of the same. Besides creating awareness on health services among villagers, her duties also include medical care for pregnant women and nursing others along with sanitisation, immunisation, administering polio. It is really a proud moment for all the Indians, especially for the women, that a local woman from Odissa has achieved a place in the most-strongest women personalities in India in Forbes. We congratulate Matilda Kullu for the achievement too.
