Helping and giving free medicines to the poor and the needy people deprived of medical facilities – a true service to the society
Medicines and treatments are not the prerogatives of the wealthy people. But underprivileged classes with poor financial background also have the right to get the same. SSF in the past also had taken many such initiatives and this one described below is a classic example of Sakal Group’s viewpoint about the social harmony. Patients residing within the boundaries of Pune & Pimpri Chinchwad Municipal Corporation and suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes & asthma are given free medicines by Sakal Social Foundation and Chemist Association of Pune District. The coupons for the same activity were distributed at Sakal, Pune (Budhwar Peth) and Pimpri offices. The patients willing to collect the coupons were asked to bring the Yellow ration card of the respective patient or the relative, the doctor’s prescription (photocopy along with original document) and the identity card. This was the last phase of the free medicines distribution initiative.
