At Elfin, we believe that contributing back to the society is not only a RESPONSIBILITY but a COMMITMENT. Our little value added to the betterment of society is a part of our mission, in line with our commitment to human health. Through the years, Elfin has strived to make the world around it a better place. Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is not just an integral part of our business but devotion; the promise of a brighter future for every life we touch.
We consider it our duty to contribute a share of our earnings towards health benefits to the less privileged, rural welfare to make life easier for rural poor and several charitable activities to do our part towards the welfare of society as a whole.
With a second highest population in the world, there is the tremendous requirement of blood for patient care. Unfortunately, there is an endemic shortfall of this precious item. Every year we organize a blood donation drive at all our locations for our team members to contribute to this noble cause.
Apart from regular medical initiatives, we have also been working in the domain of rural upliftment having built several Community halls in the vicinity of several hospitals. These community halls are used by relatives of patients admitted in the hospitals especially government-run hospitals. The patients’ relatives are provided with free accommodation and subsidized meals while they are busy taking care of the patient. We have also developed waiting areas in government hospitals to provide seating areas to patients and their families.
Our CSR efforts are focused on ‘how to not turn a blind eye’ to a common yet growing medical concern in India. India is home to a quarter of world’s blind with cataract being the leading cause of this problem. Our free eye camps have helped make a very simple yet vital procedure accessible to needy patients, averting the need for them to face a bleak yet highly preventable long-term reality – a life without sight.
We continue to conduct large eye care camps in various villages where we provide underprivileged people with free cataract operations and eye checkups through the services of eye specialists and surgeons. All patients undergoing eye operations are also provided with adequate post-operative care. In 2012, our dedicated team was instrumental in achieving over 11,000 cataract surgeries successfully.
