ESI Health Project
SIF in collaboration with Employees State Insurance Hospitals (ESI), Government of erstwhile Andhra Pradesh, provided health care services to thousands of workers working in various industries and factories in Hyderabad. Our staff organized meetings in hundreds of factories and industries to sensitize the workers on occupational health hazards and the need to take safety precautions to avoid accidents. SIF established Health Help Line centre for workers and assisted their families in availing ESI services.
Blood Donation Camps
Poor patients who lack money to buy blood should have access to blood in times of health emergencies. We at SIF encourage individuals to donate blood voluntarily with an objective of saving the lives of poor people. We have formed several partnerships with various hospitals and conducted blood donation camps.
As part of the project ‘Effectiveness of 3 layer cloth washable masks’ we have distributed around 30000 masks in 8 villages of Rangareddy District which include Sheriguda, Uppariguda, Pocharam, Lingampally, Mankhal, Thummaloor, Mansanpally, Sardar nagar.
