Arcil helped set up a physiotherapy unit for the elderly
In partnership with Shield Foundation
Arcil helped set up a physiotherapy unit for the elderly of Matunga Labour Camp and Dharavi area of Mumbai through the Shield Foundation. Shield Foundation is working for underprivileged senior citizens of these localities through the conduct of free weekly physiotherapy camps under the guidance of trained physiotherapists from Lokmanya Tilak Hospital to provide the beneficiaries with proper physiotherapy care with easy access from their homes. There are around 35000 elderly residing in these localities who are not able to afford physiotherapy treatment prescribed for their ailments. Arcil’s donation of basic physiotherapy equipment to Shield Foundation will benefit 80 to 100 such patients per month to live with dignity irrespective of their socio-economic circumstances.
