Nearly a thousand villagers were treated for various ailments at a free medical camp organised by Reliance Energy Ltd. (REL) in Maharashtra's Thane district.
Villagers from 15 rural pockets of the Mira Road-Bhayander areas, about 20 km northwest of Mumbai, attended the camp held Sunday to mark the golden jubilee of the birth anniversary of Balayogi Shri Sadanand Maharaj.
Mira Road-Bhayander mayor Narendra Mehta inaugurated the daylong camp in the presence of REL vice-president for corporate social responsibility Vijay Prabhu, municipal commissioner Sudam Gaikwad and other dignitaries at the Adarsh Vidya Mandir School in Rai village.
A team of 15 doctors from the REL's M.G. Hospital in Mumbai came down to conduct general check-ups and minor surgeries. They also gave ENT, gynaecology, physiotherapy, and cardiac treatment.
REL, part of the Reliance Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group, is a leading private sector utility company with a market capitalisation of over Rs.2,700 billion.
