Essar Steel and Essar Foundation conducted health check-up camps in Ena, Vanzoliya and Amalsari villages in Surat district, Gujarat, recently. These areas house a tribal community, with limited access to health services. The villages have been marked as under-nourished zones.
Essar has been conducting health check-up camps in these villages on a monthly basis, which has benefitted 1,100 people in the past 9 months. Recently, a special camp was conducted for the students of the primary school at Ghabeni village, where a blood check-up was done for 355 students. Those who were diagnosed with poor blood count and required medical assistance were administered on promptly.
The camp was conducted in association with Care Nursing Home, Nand Niketan Township and the village heads who extended their support and cooperation to mobilise people for these camps.
