Healthcare outreach to labour camps a success with medical check ups
As part of its ongoing commitment to the community during the Holy Month of Ramadan, VISO initiated a health campaign that offered complimentary health check ups at labour camps to promote wellness.
Medical teams offered workers general health scans as well as blood pressure tests during the drive. The initiative, in partnership with Al Das Medical Clinic and 800 Pharmacy has been widely appreciated by workers who could not afford regular checkups.
Al Das performed Blood sugar and blood pressure tests with GP consultation while 800 pharmacy sponsored gifts for every laborer that attended. The outreach attracted 160 labourers, with various different diagnoses such as pneumonia, asthma, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, bronchitis and dehydration with most being diagnosed for high blood pressure.
Eng. Khalid Al Karama, Managing Director and Co-Founder of VISO said, “We are committed to spreading a culture of caring with initiatives that promote health and wellness in the community. Our team members offered a helping hand to end the blessed Holy Month reaching out to the neediest in our society.”
As a young brand, VISO hopes to emulate compassion, generosity and humanitarian values in its CSR initiatives and to instill the importance of being health conscious all year round. The event attracted a large number of labourers during the weekend outreach.
VISO allows patients to browse and book healthcare providers, request delivery of pharmaceuticals and lab tests as well as stay updated with the latest tips and promotions in the healthcare, wellness and lifestyle centers on a single platform.
