PFC sponsors cochlear implant surgeries for 100 hearing-impaired
children under its CSR initiative
Mumbai, Dec 16 (UNI) The corporate social responsibility (CSR)
project of Power Finance Corporation Ltd (PFC) has helped 100
hearing-impaired children to completely overcome their disability,
thereby enabling them to hear and speak coherently and making them
fully independent to lead a normal and productive life, said Union
Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot on
Saturday.
"This effort will not only bring these underprivileged children to
the mainstream of life, but will also contribute to the national
economy," he added while talking to reporters here.
This was possible because PFC sponsored cochlear implant surgeries
of 100 children with profound hearing loss, under their CSR project,
which was implemented by Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation
of
India (ALIMCO), across the country.
PFC and ALIMCO had signed an agreement for conducting cochlear
implant surgeries of 100 beneficiaries for FY 2016-17 on pan India
basis at an aggregate cost of Rs 630 lakh, under the CSR initiative.
