Care for Coimbatore
Many of the underprivileged live in remote areas, far from established medical facilities. To give them quality medical care, L&T and the L&T Public Charitable Trust (LTPCT) run mobile medical units that are well- equipped and professionally staffed.
One such mobile medical unit was inaugurated by Mr J D Patil, Advisor to L&T CEO & MD, on 2 July at L&T’s Coimbatore campus. In association with WESTRIC Trust, LTPCT will run this project serving rural and tribal communities in 17 villages in Coimbatore’s Kinathukadavu block.
Since 2013, L&T has been running mobile medical units in Coimbatore’s Madukkarai block, bringing the benefits of good health to more than 25,000 underprivileged people annually.
In terms of facilities, many government schools provide only the bare minimum, and that’s where the private sector comes in. For years, L&T has been supporting government schools in myriad ways.
As part of its CSR initiatives, L&T, on 27 June, inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Coimbatore’s district education department for the adoption of seven government schools. The MoU was formally exchanged by Ms N Geetha (Chief Education Officer – Coimbatore) and Mr S Saravanan (Head – L&T Coimbatore Central Management).
Appreciating the initiative, Ms Geetha underscored that L&T’s school adoption programme has improved the infrastructure of several government schools in Coimbatore. This is helping enhance the quality of education and student participation. Starting in 2015, L&T’s Coimbatore campus has so far adopted 23 government schools in the district.
