Actis believes in making this world a better place by creating opportunities for all members of our community. Our interventions are designed to assist underprivileged children by helping eliminate malnutrition and support their primary education, which we consider a basic right of every child. We also look to participate in the rehabilitation of abandoned women and children as a way to assist them in creating a better future.
The improvement of healthcare infrastructure is another area that deserves our attention as a society, because of the critical role it plays in ensuring the health and well-being of our fellow citizens. Hence, we seek opportunities where we can contribute to making healthcare more accessible to those who need it the most.
The absence of adequate life-saving equipment can fundamentally result in losing precious lives. As part of its CSR efforts, Actis donated life-saving machines to Bhaktivedanta Hospital and Research Institute. Motivated to collaborate with Bhaktivedanta Hospital in its pursuit to provide support in saving lives, Actis has continually shown its solidarity by providing emergency care and super-speciality medical services in a committed manner.
This time, Actis showed its unwavering commitment by providing these life-saving machines:
Over the last two years, the Cardiac ambulance has been of high utility for about 186 emergency calls which include Cardiac and other emergencies. The ECG machine in the ambulance was used by the medical team on 162 patients. Besides, we were able to use the defibrillator about 74 times. Also, the ambulance was a great supporter at the recent flood relief camp at Chiplun, Mahad in Maharashtra, for providing the needed care to about 900 patients. The hospital has performed 2912 dialysis from December 2019 till October 2021 using the donated machines.
Suffice to say, all the equipment and the Cardiac Ambulance have been optimally used in service to patients.
As they say, “You are.. if your life is.” Actis takes a step towards helping cardiac patients in times of emergency by donating a Cardiac Ambulance to BhaktiVedanta Hospital and Research Institute. We are committed to working together with BhaktiVedanta Hospital on their journey of saving lives, helping families have wider smiles and more joyous memories.
Actis will be supporting the infrastructure refurbishment of Anganwadis in the North-Western region of Mumbai by remodelling the kitchen area and introducing greening, solar lights and functional toilets. Anganwadis are courtyard shelters which are meant to support early childhood development for children aged 0-6 years.
The program will also work closely with young mothers to help raise awareness of the importance of hygiene, nutrition and early education. Actis will be implementing this program with the help of United Way India which is one of the leading non-profit organisations worldwide.
