For us at LAPP, giving back to the society is our chosen responsibility. It’s the people of the society who enable us to progress and evolve in our business and we believe we can only keep excelling if we keep doing our bit for the welfare of the society.
In the quest of strengthening Community Health initiatives, we organized Preventive Health Screening for the local community inhabiting the areas around our manufacturing facility at Bengaluru. Two such screening camps were held by LAPP, one at Government Cocoon Market Sidlaghatta, Chickkaballapura district and the other one at Palana Jogihalli Village, Doddaballapura Town, Bengaluru Rural district.
The aim behind conducting these screening camps was to be able to reach out to the socially and economically underprivileged communities of the society and evaluate their health. The screening included evaluation for heart diseases, respiratory diseases, skin diseases, eye screening, vision correction, providing spectacles, referral for cataracts, blood pressure and ECG monitoring. On the basis of each individual’s reports, they were suggested treatments, dietary changes and were educated about government schemes and hospitals that will cater to their treatment without burdening them financially.
With three health camps per day at two sites, we screened more than 492 people and guided them towards necessary medical aid, thus preventing the possibility of fatal future health complications.
