On the 19th November 2017, Toyota Kirloskar Motor along with SEED CSR inaugurated a Mobile Medical Unit [MMU] and conducted a specialized health camp at Ramnagara. The whole event was conducted and managed by the field team of SEED CSR. The event was held at Government High School in Sheshagirihalli, where Toyota’s first employee volunteerism engagement ‘ICARE’ was initiated, which was aimed at inciting a sense of social responsibility and care towards the society among the employees.
The camp which was inaugurated by Ms. R. Latha, IAS – Chief Executive Officer, Zilla Panchayat [Ramanagara District], Ms. Sunanda Venkatesh, President – Manchanayakanahalli Gram Panchayat Dr. Arun Kumar, District Tuberculosis Officer and Dr. T. Amaranath, District Health Officer – Ramanagara District and Mr. Naveen Soni, Vice President, Toyota Kirloskar Motor.
This primarily aims at providing free medical check-up and Quality Healthcare facilities to the communities actively supported by Toyota employees in mobilizing of community members, raising awareness and providing assistance to ensure smooth functioning of the activity. Mobile Medical unit project was undertaken with an objective to cater to the medical requirements of the inaccessible villages by providing them the preventive & curative health care services and simultaneously strengthening the Government health care system as a sustainable measure.
In addition, specialized health camps were also organized and a team of specialized doctors (Gynecology, Dental, Pediatrics and General Medicine) attended the patients. We distributed medicines to the patients and gave them consultation for free; medical referrals and regular follow-ups would also be done for critical cases. Through MMU, we are aiming to bring down the life style prone diseases [such as Diabetes, Blood pressure, etc] and seasonal diseases [like Chikungunya, Dengue, Malaria, etc]. Also, owing to Byramangala lake contamination, more cases are registered under skin related diseases, which will be effectively addressed through this MMU in the surrounding villages.
