Vedanta’s VGCB to organize monthly free health check-up camps for community in Vizag

In order to provide better access to specialised healthcare facilities for the communities around Vizag, Vedanta’s Vizag General Cargo Berth (VGCB) has launched a unique healthcare initiative under which company will be organizing a specialised medical camp every month. With a series of monthly free health check-up camps, Vedanta’s VGCB is aiming to provide quality healthcare facilities at the doorstep for the needy people around its operations, especially targeting slum dwellers. The first medical camp under this noble initiative was organized at the nearby slum wherein a team of specialists including a general physician, a gynaecologist and a paediatrician provided free medical check-up & consultation services to the community. Based on the prescriptions, free medicines were distributed among patients by the VGCB team. The first camp received an overwhelming response from the community and benefitted more than 100 people.
This initiative by Vedanta’s VGCB, in partnership with FXB Suraksha, was lauded by residents and local leaders.
