Quick Heal Foundation’s Arogya Yan initiative to benefit ~1 lakh people, including members of President-protected tribes
- The initiative will make primary healthcare accessible to Korba's tribal and rural residents.
- Currently, Arogya Yan initiative impacts 450 villages across 7 states, touching 3.5 lakh lives.
12 Oct 2022: Quick Heal Foundation's Arogya Yan medical van donation initiative was started to bring medical aid to the rural hinterlands of India. The initiative aims to get medical assistance to people's doorsteps and connect them to healthcare services. Currently, Arogya Yan covers more than 450 villages across 7 states, touching the lives of more than 3.5 lakh people, and continues to bring more beneficiaries under its ambit.
Quick Heal Foundation has extended its Arogya Yan initiative to the communities of Korba, Chhattisgarh through Sewa Bharati, a local NGO partner, in the presence of Shee Jaisingh Agrawal, Cabinet Minister Government of Chhattisgarh; Mrs. Anupama Katkar, Chairperson, Quick Heal Foundation; Sh. Rajkishore Prasad, Mayor, Municipal Corporation of Korba; and Dr. H.R. Prasad, President, Indian Medical Association, Korba.
The ambulance service is expected to benefit about 1 lakh people residing in rural Korba, including 448 people from President-protected tribes. Representatives of these tribal communities were also invited to the event, during which Quick Heal Foundation donated the Arogya Yan to the community. Korba, Chattisgarh, is primarily inhabited by tribal communities that prefer to reside in a rural environment. While this allows them to retain their distinctive cultural characteristics and traditional practices, the largely rural landscape restricts their access to quality healthcare services. The Arogya Yan will bring these communities closer to primary healthcare services.
On the occasion, Mrs. Anupama Katkar from Quick Heal Foundation said, "Despite registering unprecedented progress, India still lags in providing basic healthcare services to all. Many people in the hinterlands have limited or no access to basic health amenities. Our small contribution aims to help bridge this gap in Korba by improving the rural and tribal communities' get access to primary healthcare. We sincerely hope this small step will become the foundation of a healthier Korba."
