Blood Donation At SPIC Nagar
AM Foundation in collaboration with the Rotary Club, Lions Club of Spic Nagar and Government Medical College Hospital, Thoothukudi, organised a Blood Donation drive at SPIC Nagar Medical Centre, on 6th August, 2023. Blood transfusions meet a key requirement in medical interventions and can be a life saver.
Donating blood at the camp were participants from Rotaract, Interact, Leo Club and employees of our group companies SPIC, Greenstar Fertilizers and Tuticorin Alkali Chemicals and Fertilizers. The camp was inaugurated by Ekanurthy Balu, Whole-Time Director, SPIC.
A total of 88 people donated blood while many expressed their gratitude for our services.
Health is often not a priority in marginalised communities and yet it is vital to living a normal and productive life and to our overall well-being. Aiming to mainstream health as an important goal, AM Foundation conducted two medical camps recently. On 5th August 2023, with the support of Tamilnadu Petroproducts (TPL), we organised a free General, Skin and Gynaecology camp at Tsunami Quarters Community Hall, Ennore, Chennai, for the benefit of the local community.
The camp was attended by more than 220 patients, while more than 25 patients availed the Foundation’s Laboratory facility.
As part of our commitment to deliver essential healthcare services, AM Foundation also organised a General Medical Camp at Anthoniyarpuram, in Thoothukudi, on 30th July 2023. The camp was organised with the support of Greenstar Fertilizers and SPIC, and benefitted around 120 patients while 30 patients used the Foundation’s Laboratory.
Nutritional Mix & Path Lab in Abirami Nagar
Am Foundation achieved another milestone in our CSR outreach work in July, when we delivered two health services in Abirami Nagar AMPHCC, Thoothukudi. To support the nutritional needs of children and women in this community, we distributed Nutritious Mix, a tasty and well-balanced, healthy snack, on 14th July 2023.
On the same occasion, the Foundation also inaugurated a Pathology Laboratory in Abirami Nagar AMPHCC, an important step in our journey towards delivering the highest standards of diagnostic testing and patient-centric care. The lab will provide testing services for blood sugar, blood-urea, complete blood count, serum bilirubin, dengue card method (IGG, IGM, NS1).
PHCC & Sanitation Blocks
We’ve been really busy taking our outreach work to the maximum number of vulnerable people who need them, and the month of September saw AM Foundation launch two more vital health facilities.We inaugurated the AM Primary Health Care Centre in Seemavaram, Chennai, under the CSR wing of Tamilnadu Petroproducts, on 25th September 2023. Seemavaram covers more than 4 villages, and around 5,000 individuals will benefit from our new initiative.
We are also excited to announce the inauguration of our Sanitation Blocks at Thoothukudi on behalf of our group company, Sicagen India Limited. As we support Swachh Bharat’s goal to end open defecation, the Foundation initiated the renovation of sanitary blocks in government schools in Thoothukudi, creating a healthy space for learning.
