Lanka IOC PLC, acknowledging its responsibility towards the society conducted several Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives under its theme ‘WE CARE’ with several noble programs. In addition to a series of welfare programs including assistance for elders’ homes, renovation of healthcare centre, donation of ambulances, wheelchairs and English education for under privileged children, Lanka IOC also organized free health camps at different locations all over the country.
This medical camp solicited the experience of a team of 14 medical experts from “HelpAge Sri Lanka” including 05 doctors, a nurse , a pharmacist, 02 optometrists and support staff to provide a professional service to the patients. For ensuring proper diagnosis, sophisticated medical equipments were used to screen patients for diabetes, blood pressure, vision and other diseases. Wherever critical illness was diagnosed, the patients were referred to hospitals for further investigation and treatment.
“MD Lanka IOC; Shyam Bohra conveyed that the company, as a corporate policy, places emphasis on social responsibility and giving back to society. Our public welfare projects target the deprived and deserving, regardless of any demographic differences. During the current financial year, through the ‘WE CARE’ initiative, we sponsored free health care to underserved rural families in the vicinity of Lanka IOC fuel stations.”
One more free medical camp is scheduled in March 2016, followed by a series of such health camps in the next financial year.
