Tata Power organises free promotional health camps in Mumbai

Detailed diagnosis for women conducted by the doctor

Mumbai: Tata Power, India's largest integrated power company, has always been a forerunner in providing quality healthcare facilities to communities in and around its areas of operations. In line with this philosophy, Tata Power organised free promotional health camps in slum localities in Mumbai. Five camps were set up by Tata Power Community Development Trust (TPCDT) to provide free promotional medical diagnosis and free distribution of medicines to slum dwellers of Mumbai and nearby localities.

The camps, organised over the period of a month, focused on reducing the expenses on the consumption of curative healthcare. More than 622 individuals were benefitted by these camps. Women, children, and elderly people were given priority during the drive. The medical camps were organised in partnership with the CSR wing of Larsen and Toubro (L&T) and BSES Hospital. The camp was driven by a qualified doctor, nurse and pharmacist and was supported with a mobile medical van with necessary medicines.

Free medicine distribution among slum dwellers

Speaking about the programme, Ashok Sethi, executive director and COO, Tata Power, said, "We, at Tata Power, always prioritise the health and well-being of the underprivileged community. We are happy to be able to spread awareness and provide healthcare facilities to the people in need. We sincerely appreciate the efforts put in by the volunteers and the L&T team to make these camps a success. The response that we have received has further motivated us to organise similar initiatives in future as well."

The TPCDT team plans to undertake similar camps in more than 10 slum clusters, and aims to cover over 1,000 beneficiaries. The health camps were greatly appreciated by the slum dwellers and mobilised around Rs67,500 resources through the partnership.
