Project Description

 

Driven by the belief of the Chairman Emeritus, Shri Sudhir Mehta ‘Children are the future of our nation and this future must be well preserved’, the flagship CSR program of the Group “REACH” – Reach EAch CHild was initiated in the year 2016 under the aegis of Tornascent Care Institute, a Section 8 Company. REACH has three major pillars: (a) SHAISHAV (b) JATAN and (c) MUSKAN. Salient achievements are: 
1. “Shaishav”, the first pillar of the programme, targets to establish baseline health status of children in age group of 6 months to 6 years, through medical camps in 372 villages surrounding the industrial establishments of the Group. This year, 277 supplementary camps spanning 351 villages were conducted to screen 12,619 new children subsequent to previous camps. Children identified as anemic and malnourished were provided appropriate treatment with very encouraging outcomes. Additionally children identified with chronic illnesses were provided long term treatment with complete handholding. Aggregate 1,471 such children having chronic illnesses have benefitted from the programme since initiation. 
2. “Jatan”, the second pillar of the programme, encompasses provision of healthcare services to children upto 18 years. Initiated with establishment of 4 state-of-art paediatric primary healthcare facilities, supported by mobile OPD vans, in areas where Group’s industrial facilities are located, primarily rural areas. The programme was extended during the year by building a state-of-the-art 150 bed paediatric hospital “Balsangam”, near Sugen Power Plant at an aggregate capital cost of ` 135 crores. The hospital, inaugurated in February 2020, will provide free-of-cost OPD and in-patient services and is eventually planned to be established as a center of excellence in secondary and tertiary paediatric care in multiple super specialties. “Balsangam” is expected to benefit children residing in about 500 villages in a radius of 40 kms. In addition, ‘Sumangal’ (the erstwhile “Swadhar”) community healthcare facility was integrated into the ‘Rangtarang’ hospital complex and expanded from a community healthcare center to multidisciplinary clinic for patients of all ages. “Sumangal” provides general and specialised healthcare services at a nominal charge of INR 10 per visit. 
The well-equipped paediatric hospital at Sugen and primary paediatric health centers at other 3 locations, namely, Dahej, Balasinor and Indrad progressed well during the year. The Sugen center added diagnostic capabilities during the year. For the year 2019-20, 1,37,297 children benefited from the services of these pediatric centers and associated mobile OPD vans.
3. Under “Muskaan”, the third pillar of the program, counselling and support was provided to rural adolescent girls around Sugen, Dahej & Indrad centers covering menstrual hygiene and sanitation, by providing free health and hygiene kits. About 6,000 adolescent girls from 125 villages, between 11-18 years of age were provided kits on monthly basis during the year. This programme has helped gradual eradication of physiological and social taboos and increased confidence and self-esteem of the beneficiaries. It is planned to expand the coverage under this programme.
Initiative aims to spread health awareness amongst the communities about curative facilities available at Bal Arogya Kendras so as to prevent diseases. This initiative is driven through large scale employee participation. The targeted population includes patients waiting for consultation at Jatan, mothers hailing from villages where camps are conducted and others who come in contact during follow up interventions. 41,230 villagers from 351 supplementary camp villages and 65,737 children from 493 primary schools have benefited from the sessions. During the year, a healthcare awareness drive through daily SMS containing a topical health message in Gujarati language was started, covering more than 80,000 villagers, mainly beneficiaries under our various programmes across all the four locations.
