Corporate Social Responsibility is a management concept whereby companies integrate social and environmental concerns in their business operations and interactions with their stakeholders. CSR is generally understood as being the way through which a company achieves a balance of economic, environmental and social imperatives (“Triple-Bottom-Line- Approach”), while at the same time addressing the expectations of shareholders and stakeholders. In this sense it is important to draw a distinction between CSR, which can be a strategic business management concept, and charity, sponsorship’s or philanthropy. Even though the latter can also make a valuable contribution to poverty reduction, will directly enhance the reputation of a company and strengthen its brand, the concept of CSR clearly goes beyond that.

Cleft Info: The birth rate in India for cleft deformities is a staggering 1 in every 700 infants born . In a country like India where a large portion of the rural population still believes in superstitions, people consider children with cleft lip deformity to be bad luck and some even consider them cursed. They are often forbidden from attending school, playing with other children and even barred from leaving their homes. The project will help cleft children to go to school with confidence and self-esteem after their surgeries and treatments. The children will have less chances of getting bullied and traumatized. The families of these children will have confidence to bring up their Cleft children.

Sight test and glasses could dramatically improve the lives of 150 million people with poor vision

A simple sight test and eyeglasses or contact lenses could make a dramatic difference to the lives of more than 150 million people who are suffering from poor vision. Children fail at school, adults are unable to work and families are pushed into poverty as a result of uncorrected visual impairment.

school eye screening

ON 12 October 2006, the World Health Organization (WHO) has released new global estimates which, for the first time, reveal that 153 million people around the world have uncorrected refractive errors (more commonly known as near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmatism). Refractive errors can be easily diagnosed, measured and corrected with eyeglasses or contact lenses, yet millions of people in low and middle income countries do not have access to these basic services.

Refractive errors bangalore schools

Without appropriate optical correction, millions of children are losing educational opportunities and adults are excluded from productive working lives, with severe economic and social consequences. Individuals and families are frequently pushed into a cycle of deepening poverty because of their inability to see well. At least 13 million children (age 5 to 15) and 45 million working-age adults (age 16 to 49) are affected globally. Fully 90% of all people with uncorrected refractive errors live in low and middle income countries.

“These results reveal the enormity of the problem,” said Dr Catherine Le Galès-Camus, WHO Assistant Director-General, Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health. “This common form of visual impairment can no longer be ignored as a target for urgent action.”

Correction of refractive errors is a simple and cost-effective intervention in eye care,” said Dr Serge Resnikoff, Coordinator of WHO’s Chronic Disease Prevention and Management unit. “Now that we know the extent of the problem of uncorrected refractive errors, especially in low and middle income countries, we must re-double our efforts to ensure that every person who needs help is able to receive it.”

Refractive errors occur when the eye is not able to correctly focus images on the retina. The result is blurred vision, which is sometimes so severe that it creates functional blindness for affected individuals.

The three most common refractive errors are:

  1. Myopia (nearsightedness) – this is difficulty in seeing distant objects clearly.
  2. Hyperopia also known as Hypermetropia (farsightedness) – this is difficulty is seeing close objects clearly.
  3. Astigmatism – This is distorted vision resulting from an irregularly curved cornea.

In general, These projects reach populations who are underserved or who have limited or no access to eye health care services. The program funds high-quality, sustainable projects that deliver eye care services, develop infrastructure, train personnel and/or provide rehabilitation and education in underserved communities.
You could start Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Initiatives for your Company in association with us. Such healthcare projects will make CSR contribution targeted, making them simple to execute as turnkey CSR projects. ‘Promoting healthcare’ is an area identified under schedule VII of the Companies Act 2013 that is eligible to receive CSR funding either directly or through an implementing agency that has a track record.

World No Tobacco Day 2012 !

Trinity Care Foundation organized a program on June 15th 2012 on the World No Tobacco Day Theme 2012 “Tobacco Industry Interference”.

World No Tobacco Program 8

Program intended to create awareness among the people about the harmful effects of tobacco consumption highlighting the ill health effects of smoking to both smokers and non-smokers. An Oral Screening with Health Education on the evils of tobacco was given to the patients and their attendants. Patients were given education about the risk factors associated with tobacco consumption and smoking.
The Program focused on :
1. Health Education – ill effects of Tobacco
2. Oral Screening – Diagnosis and Referral to M.R Ambedkar Dental College for Further Treatment
3. Dental Treatment – Minor Treatments on the Mobile Dental Unit

The Health Team from Government of Karnataka Health Department, Trinity Care Foundation and M.R Ambedkar Dental College were present in the KSRTC Bus Stand Kanakapura Town, Ramanagara District, Karnataka, India for providing Health Services to the General Public.World No Tobacco Day 2012

World No Tobacco Day 2012 will educate policy-makers and the general public about the tobacco industry’s nefarious and harmful tactics. Tobacco industry interference is the theme of this year’s World No Tobacco Day.

The campaign will focus on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry’s brazen and increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine global tobacco control efforts. The campaign will focus on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry’s brazen and increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) because of the serious danger they pose to public health.

Tobacco use is one of the leading preventable causes of death. Each year, the global tobacco epidemic kills nearly 6 million people. It is on a track to kill more than 8 million people by 2030, by which time approximately 80% of the deaths would occur in low and middle income countries.

A tobacco ban on tobacco marketing can substantially reduce tobacco consumption and consequently tobacco related deaths and disease. We have to look into the causes of tobacco usage and think of new strategies to curb it, said Dr. Umashankar G K, Trinity Care Foundation.

Many patients were diagnosed with oral dental pre-malignant condition and lesions like oral sub-mucous fibrosis, leukoplakia, tobacco quid lesion, smokers palate. Complete oral was done and many patients received treatments on the Mobile Dental Unit stationed at the Bus Stand.
