AASHIANA CENTER FOR PHYSICAL AND MEDICAL REHABILITATION
Paraplegia (Spinal injuries) is one other cause considered in the CSR interventions. In Kerala, there are limited facilities available for rehabilitating ‘people in wheel chairs’ making their lives productive like any other normal human being. This requires a professional approach and dedicated effort which is envisaged through Aashiana Centre for Physical and Medical Rehabilitation (PMR) at Mulanthuruthy near Cochin. The centre is in final stages of its establishment phase. The construction of the Centre is about to finish and the customised facilities are getting ready. The PMR centre is expected to start functioning from next FY.
Treatment Support Scheme
MFL has constituted a Treatment Support Scheme to financially help patients with the objective of supporting its stakeholders and communities in India who are in critical ailment conditions, wherein, due to their poor socio-economic conditions they could not access required treatments. The requests are received at MFL branches and braches are asked to complete a verification process to recommend the deserving cases. During this reporting period, 73 patients from disadvantaged sections of the society were supported through this scheme. Financial aid were given to patients suffering from cardiac issues, renal issues, cancer and also patients with other chronic diseases.
Apart from the financial aid, periodic Medical Camps were conducted through Muthoot Fincorp branches at various locations partnering with local hospitals. The camps were benefited for a population above 20000.
