In a bid to ensure the overall well-being of the community, DLF Foundation organized a multi-specialty health camp at Village Bada near Nawada Fathepur, Gurugram. Held in collaboration with Institute for Global Development, New Delhi, the camp witnessed over 300 people being screened for various diseases. Besides the general health checkup, the community was provided the services of Obstetrician/Gynaecologist, General Physician, Paediatrician OPD, Eye testing and Dental OPD. The objective of the initiative launched under Project Aarogyam was to provide regular qualitative primary health services in the Project area.
A health talk was also delivered by two eminent doctors Dr. P K Goswami, and Dr. R P Sharma. The lab testing facility was also made available for all the patients. Panchayat members of neighbouring villages actively participated in spreading the messages on preventive and promotive aspects of health.
“DLF Foundation has always aspired to make a difference to society by contributing to it in every possible way. This initiative is a part of our endeavour to keep residents healthy. We will continue to organize such initiatives in future,” said Mr. Vinay Sahni, CEO, DLF Foundation.
Recognizing the facts that follow- up of the patients is an integral part of the activity, the team from Institute of Global Development shall be coordinating with local health care workers for ensuring the identified cases receive the due care.
“I appreciate the efforts of DLF Foundation’s initiative. Such activities enable access to basic healthcare facilities to those who can’t afford it,” said Mrs. Rama Devi, a beneficiary.
Such health camps have been regularly organized under DLF Foundation’s Cluster Development Programme which represents a holistic approach to development and contributes to five major development areas: social, economic, environment, health, and education. The aim of the programme is to improve the overall health profile of local personnel and their families.
