New Delhi, Jan 27, 2015: Furthering its commitment towards social causes, Health Care at Home (HCAH), India’s first hi-tech, documented, quality homecare service provider, conducted a health camp for the occupants of a non-governmental organization (NGO) which houses mentally retarded people and destitutes to make them feel a part of the society and cared for.
During the camp, HCAH experts checked their blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) and provided physiotherapy, nutrition and psychological counselling services. The 200 occupants of the NGO — Earth Saviours Foundation — are either mentally retarded, physically challenged or homeless. They have found shelter in the NGO, which consistently works to improve the lives of the people.
“As an organization we are committed to social causes and have been conducting camps which create awareness about health-related issues and help out marginalized people. We conduct such camps time to time as part of our corporate social responsibility (CSR). When government is going all out to bring the downtrodden and the poor in the mainstream, it is our responsibility to work alongside it and support it in its endeavor. As a healthcare company, we have been organizing health camps for the poor and awareness workshops on hygiene in schools in various cities,” said Vivek Srivastava, Chief Executive Officer, HCAH.
Occupants of these NGOs often feel deserted and suffer from bouts of depression and loneliness. The HCAH experts interacted with them and offered psychological help to those feeling low in life. They were also taught exercises by HCAH physiotherapists to remain fit and active.
“Each member of HCAH team was profoundly touched by this initiative. The team members have become emotionally more receptive towards the realities of health and care in a metro city like Delhi. We believe that while government does its job in providing affordable healthcare to people at large, HCAH will keep on helping out people with its expertise and make the poorest sections of the society benefit from its initiatives. We are also planning to do many such events across Chandigarh, Jaipur and Bangalore,” said Gaurav Thukral, Head Medical Services, HCAH.
The HCAH and health experts employees also served lunch to the people at the NGO, making them feel good and a part of society. The camp was led by Amit Kapoor, Unit Head Delhi, and conducted by HCAH employees Puneet Waddan , Akansh Gaur and Kanika Malhotra.
