Mylapore based NGO Viswajayam Foundation that focuses on providing housekeeping services at Government Royapettah Hospital is now offering food to doctors, nurses, and sanitation workers, at various government hospitals in the city.
Says Shekar Viswanathan of Viswajayam Foundation, “Through the lockdown period we have been providing food to doctors, nurses, sanitation workers and caregivers at the cancer ward of Royapettah government hospital, and Government Children’s hospital, Egmore. At Government Maternity hospital, Egmore we also provide lunch to mothers who just delivered their babies.
Most of these doctors, nurses, he says work for more than 12 hours a day. “They do not get proper food during the lockdown period. So we collaborated with a corporate kitchen in Injambakkam to provide them with nutritious food thrice a day.”
Recently, we also distributed lunch to 150 homeless people in Wall Tax Road area.
Viswajayam foundation is located at 187, Kumara Vijayam, Royapettah High Road, Mylapore. Ph: 93819 22775
