Mumbai: Mahindra Lifespaces, one of the leading developers in the growing real estate industry, organised a special, free medical heath check-up camp for porters at Mumbai Central Terminus recently.
270 porters and class four employees benefited from the camp. Tests carried out included a Dental Check up, a Blood test to determine their blood sugar levels, Eye test – from which they could also avail free spectacles and a general body check up, which was carried out by a physician. Spectacles were distributed to 213 patients. Each porter patient was given a personal Health card and counseled about Dos and Don’ts to keep himself fit. A post event discussion with the doctors revealed that the most common problem faced by the porters was oral cavity due to tobacco chewing and back problems because of carrying heavy weights.
Said Mr. Pawan Malhotra, MD & CEO, Mahindra Lifespaces, 'This is one of our most fulfilling ESOPs activities to date. Through such health camps, we endeavor to provide necessary medical attention to the needy sections of society and help make their lives easier. We are planning to extend this activity to other regions as well.'
Speaking at the inauguration, the Chief Guest Mr. Satya Prakash, Divisional Railway Manager, said, 'These porters are one section of the Railways, who do the most strenuous job, and conducting such a health camp is of utmost use to them. Such camps increase awareness of their medical condition, and if need be, help them take necessary steps.'
Mahindra Lifespaces employees volunteered for the camp under the ESOPs (Employee Social Options) programme that has been initiated by Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. ESOPs is a special programme for Mahindra employees to collectively donate thousands of human hours for various social projects. Last year Mahindra Lifespaces had conducted a similar workshop for porters at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST).
Other projects that have been successfully held under the ESOPs initiative include blood donation camps in different cities, planting trees & saplings, traffic management during festivals, supporting the underprivileged girl child and flood affected people in various parts of the country and other such activities.
