Hubli: Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company, has always been at the forefront of providing quality healthcare facilities to people living in and around its areas of operation. In line with this philosophy, Tata Power Community Development Trust (TPCDT), along with Family Planning Association India (Dharwad branch), organised a health camp at Tata Power’s Gadag Wind plant site for the communities of Mulgund village. The camp offered treatment and medical services to children and people over the age of 50.
The objective of this initiative was to spread awareness and provide practical solutions to common ailments that happen due to weather change and lack of hygienic practices. The camp benefitted over 350 localities through free blood tests, lipid profile tests, RBS, ESG, and general consultation. People who have been diagnosed with diseases that need further treatment will be supported by Tata Power Community Development Trust.
Speaking on the occasion, Mahesh Paranjpe, CEO & ED, Walwhan Renewable Energy Limited, said, “The health and wellbeing of the surrounding community is of utmost priority for Tata Power. We are delighted that we have been able to spread awareness and provide healthcare facilities to people. I sincerely appreciate the efforts put in by the company, members of the Family Planning Association India, and volunteers, to make this camp a success. The response that we have received has further motivated us to organize similar initiatives in future as well.”
TPCDT plans to organise a total of 7 camps in the villages of Mulgund, Harti, Kanavi, and Hosur with a focus on children, adolescents, women, and people over 50. The health camp was also appreciated by the village panchayat. The inaugural function of the camp saw the participation of members of the panchayat, School Development Management Committee (SDMC), and local Anganwadi teachers.
