Chennai: Larsen & Toubro has donated a 40-seater bus to Sankara Eye Hospital, Pammal, Chennai as part of their CSR programme that will be used to conduct free eye screening camps to benefit underprivileged people in and around Chennai and the neighbouring districts. The bus was flagged at the Sankara Eye Hospital campus in Pammal at a simple ceremony this morning.

As part of their outreach programmes, the hospital will use the bus to reach out to people with eye ailments through their various eye camps, diagnosing and treating them wherever possible. Patients with other or more severe eye problems are brought to the hospital for investigation and advanced treatment. 

“Healthcare forms a very important aspect of our CSR programme, and this donation is yet another step in our effort to make quality healthcare available and affordable to the needy,” remarked a Company spokesperson. “We value our long association with the Sankara Eye Hospital and are happy with the width and depth of their facilities and offerings.”

The donation of the bus is another milestone in L&T’s long association with Sankara Eye Hospital having already supported the construction of their multi-speciality hospital in Kancheepuram, near Chennai, donating another 30-seater bus & an ICU ambulance, installing a 50 kW solar plant and setting up training facilities.
