Project Description

Under Project Arogya, Company has undertaken following activities.

Awareness campaign on Malaria, Dengue, and Diarrhoea (MDD)

Company organised an awareness campaign on MDD in 50 peripheral villages of Therubali. IMFA has educated communities on adopting preventive measures against MDDs. Besides, IMFA sprayed bleaching powder in wells to disinfect drinking water and killing pathogens like malaria-causing mosquito larvae. Moreover, IMFA used wall paintings in high footfall areas of the villages to spread awareness about MDDs, mother and childcare and gender equality, among others. Going forward, company expect to begin these awareness programmes in local schools too.
