An ambulance service plays a critical role in saving lives by providing immediate medical assistance to the critically ill. DLF Foundation has deployed several ambulances across various locations in NCR. Patients from urban slums can now avail free ambulance services to reach the nearest hospital in case of an emergency.
This project had the maximum impact in 2021 as the public struggled to reach hospitals and medical facilities during the second wave of Covid. Six ambulances were deployed for emergency evacuation of patients to nearby hospitals. The ambulances not only ensured emergency evacuation of patients to nearby hospitals but also distributed oxygen cylinders and oxygen concentrators to the Covid-affected families across NCR. The ambulances ensure that critically ill patients from underprivileged backgrounds get immediate medical care, through linkages with hospitals. Till date, this Project has benefited over 1000 beneficiaries.
Continuing its commitment to healthcare, DLF Foundation organizes free health camps, where preventive and diagnostic testing is conducted, along with requisite consultations & provision of basic medicines to the marginalised. The camps screen for all ailments to assess the overall health of the patients. Some of the tests conducted include lipid profile, diabetes, thyroid and kidney function, liver function, etc. among others. Health camps are organised at multiple locations benefitting the unorganised labour and migrant workers.
The health camps are impactful for many beneficiaries who have underlying health issues which have gone either unnoticed or were ignored. Till now, the health camps have reached out to over 8000 beneficiaries.
