The second camp was organized on 12th May at Mahimanahalli of Kanakpura District which covered Kaggalahalli village in the activity. To provide the best checkup to the residents, the camps were serviced by 8 doctors, 8 medical staff & 25 volunteers. The doctors and MEI volunteers received enthusiastic response from the residents who went through the general health checkup of Hypertension, preliminary diabetes, Pulse, etc. The activity also provided vitamins and medicines to people who needed medication.
Mr. Katsunori Ushiku, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Electric India Pvt.

We are consistently working towards the betterment of the society and through such activities, Mitsubishi Electric India wants to give the message that the people should be aware of the healthy lifestyle which is necessary for a developed society. We have planned our CSR activities in accordance with United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals and Government of India's National Rural Health Mission so that societies at large benefit from our activities.”
Enhancing the health awareness and focusing on the well-being of the neighborhood, providing necessary medicines and supporting with essential vitamins are a step towards our mission to be a responsible corporate citizen. The residents who attended the camp were also given instructions by the doctors and medical team, on how to maintain healthy living and benefits of preventive health awareness. Many of the residents came up with the concern of Hypertension and preliminary diabetes. We briefed them with tips on how to keep blood pressure and preliminary diabetes in check by following a healthy and active lifestyle to avoid complications arising from these symptoms.
