Subject: 69th ICRF medical camp at Gulf City Cleaning company (GCCC) workers accommodation , Salmabad , for 300 people.
Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) is organizing a free medical checkup camp at Gulf City Cleaning Company ( GCCC) workers accommodation at Salmabad on Thursday, September 24th , 2009 starting at 7.00 PM. Senior medical consultants will conduct the medical examinations for about 300 workers. Health awareness, safety tips and LMRA Guidelines will be provided to the employees at the camp.
Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF), functioning under the aegis of the Indian Embassy, has been organizing regular medical checkup at various labour camps in
since many years. So far ICRF has conducted 68 free medical checks up camps at various labour sites in Bahrain , which benefited about 15,700 workers. The aim is to create health awareness among Indian workers and to provide free general medical checkup as part of the Indian community services ( ICS ) activities. We have noticed that most of the workers, especially those working in remote areas, are not aware of their health problems until these reach a critical stage. By providing the medical checkup, they are made aware of their basic health problems and are advised to pursue check up and treatment at appropriate Bahrain or Hospitals. Many workers have recovered from dangerous health problems by going for further check up and follow up treatment. We are able to conduct these medical checks up camps successfully only due to the voluntary services of the senior medical consultants, paramedical staff and other volunteers and we thank all of them for their kind assistance to the community. ICRF also provides financial assistance to critically ill persons for travel to Health Centers for further treatment. A 24 hours telephone helpline number 17713509 is available for emergency services. India
