Fortis SEWA keeping hope afloat
With the operation of Project SEWA in full swing, our team has made significant strides in providing relief to the stranded and the ill at Badrinath, Joshimath and Gauchar in Uttarakhand. Working in close coordination with the Army and Air Force, Fortis Project SEWA team has provided much needed relief and medical aid. The rescue operations are now close to completion, all the rescued have been brought to Gauchar and from there are being transported to Dehradun. Fortis Project SEWA teams have also been moved to Gauchar by the Indian Air Force.
The Chief of the Army Staff, General Bikram Singh visited Gauchar and applauded his men and the IAF for valiantly performing this challenging and daunting task. He, then, addressed the media and was introduced to our Fortis Volunteers Brig Dalip Kapur and Grp.Capt. Gurbax Singh. Our team thanked the Army, Air Force for all their support and the Army Chief also reciprocated by applauding our on-ground relief efforts.
Fortis Project SEWA’s has also found avid appreciation from Baba Beant Singh who does a lot of social and religious work in Gauchar.
In the meanwhile, our team’s morale continues to be strong with additional volunteers for the project SEWA being flown in from Delhi to Dehradun. Being the only corporate healthcare provider present in Gauchar, Badrinath & Joshimath, the Fortis Project SEWA team is humbled to have made a difference. The team provided treatment to nearly 694 people seeking medical aid. The hard work put in by the Fortis SEWA team in adverse circumstances is a true reflection of collective strength & selfless service.
