Mahanagar Gas Limited (MGL) has been contributing towards the health of auto rickshaw & taxi drivers through various CSR initiatives. In furtherance of this initiative, MGL organized a free Health Awareness Camp for the autorickshaw drivers at Wadala on 7th February 2012.
The camp was inaugurated by Shri A.D. Deshpande, Dy. RTO, Wadala. While inaugurating the camp, Shri Deshpande appreciated MGL for its social initiative for the health and welfare of the auto drivers.
About 100 auto drivers availed of the check-up during the camp. The auto drivers were overwhelmed by MGL’s gesture.
The camp was organized in coordination with the auto unions, through a team of medical experts from Amelio Mediocorp.
Earlier, MGL had organised eye check up camps at various places in Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai & Mira Road for auto & taxi drivers. Taking this initiative further, this health awareness camp was organized, where, in addition to eye check-up, blood sugar, blood pressure, spirometry and other preliminary tests were conducted for propagating healthy living among the auto drivers. MGL proposes to organize more such camps for the benefit of auto rickshaw and taxi drivers.
In addition to the Health check- up of the auto-drivers, a general check-up on the health of their vehicles was also carried out during the camp. For creating safety awareness in usage of CNG, MGL’s Mobile Safety Van equipped with audio visuals on Safety was stationed on the location for educating the CNG auto users.
