Project Description

REACH: Driven by the belief of their 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. REACH has three major pillars: (a) SHAISHAV (b) JATAN and (c) MUSKAN. The program has made a strong headway in the current year at all the four centres viz. SUGEN (near Surat), Dahej, Indrad and Nadiad / Balasinor and across all the three pillars, with increase in the scope and reach. Salient achievements are:

  • Under the first pillar of the program “Shaishav”, so far 289 paediatric camps covering 372 villages and 58,000+ underserved children (in the age group of 6 months to 6 years) were conducted, to obtain their base line health status, identify and treat anaemia and malnutrition and provide specialised treatment to those identified with cardiac, neurological, respiratory and the like disorders. Till date, more than 90% of the children were cured of their anaemic condition and around 79% of children were brought out of severe malnourishment. To improve the effectiveness in treatment of malnourishment an extensive in-house research was carried out to develop palatable nutri-dense recipes from easily available local ingredients, without any compromise in the nutrient content. After duly testing for nutrient content in certified laboratories, “Mauji Biscuits” were launched. “Mauji Biscuits” proved to be a success story as 63% of 12,976 children addressed were cured. In FY 19, emphatic focus was to ensure complete recovery in children having specific ailments, identified during camps or in Jatan centers. Specialised treatment was co-ordinated with referral hospitals and 985 children were restored to normalcy till 31st March, 2019.
  • “Jatan”, the second pillar of the program, focuses on providing the paediatric care through well equipped Paediatric centres to children in the age group of 0-18 years. Established in year 2017, all 4 centres at SUGEN, Dahej, Balasinor and Indrad are successfully supporting the basic medical needs of children in these four areas. Treatment by doctors, medicines & basic laboratory tests are provided free of cost. 1,47,000+ children have benefited till 31st March, 2019.

A Paediatric Hospital at SUGEN

  • To provide intensive and inclusive healthcare solution to paediatric patients, a 150 bedded secondary care hospital is being constructed near SUGEN plant. The target date for commissioning and dedicating the hospital is 2nd October, 2019.

 

  • Under “Muskaan”, the third pillar of the program, counselling and support is provided to the adolescent girls of villages near SUGEN, Dahej & Indrad centers for menstrual hygiene and sanitation by giving them free health and hygiene kits which include sanitary pads, soap, shampoo, etc. About 6,300 adolescent girls of Annual Report 2018-19 26 125 villages near above specified centres, 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 amongst them.

Through large scale employee participation, a new initiative was launched in the name of “Jagran e j Nivaran ”, with an aim to spread health awareness amongst the communities about curative facilities available at Bal Arogya Kendras so as to prevent diseases. The targetted 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.
