Indians in GCC (IGCC) recently conducted the longest ever health camp for four consecutive Fridays for the expatriate community in Kuwait to celebrate the Republic Day of India. The health camp was part of the IGCC health Initiative ‘Healthy Indians in Healthy Kuwait.’ The event was inaugurated on 19 January, 2018 and concluded on 9 February, by Krishan Kumar Pahel, First Secretary Embassy of India (Kuwait), in presence of Ashraf Ayyoor, GM Badr-Al-Sama,  Abdullah Hasan Thakur, CEO Dhow Capital and Dr. Saroj Bala Grover, Ex-Vice President IDF.

More than 900 people from various corporate houses including Centrepoint, Red Tag, 24 Fashion and Jashanmal etc. availed the benefit of this social activity. During this camp, the benevolent services offered included free services from blood sugar tests to liver and kidney screenings and free consultations and diagnosis after the tests to all cases with invitations for further follow ups handed to the special cases. 

The well-equipped hospital catered to more than 200+ participants on each of the Friday mornings by putting all its facilities and manpower to service in the most hospitable manner.

Indians in GCC, a recently formed association with its reach among Indians residing in GCC countries, with the aim of national integration through selfless services to fellow citizens. The Kuwait Chapter of IGCC is registered under Indian Embassy and has been actively involved in philanthropic activities since the time of its inception. Children’s Day on 14 November too was celebrated by organizing a free health camp for the children’s below 14 years of age by the IGCC. Indians across the whole country have been joining together in large number to this association, irrespective of their cast, creed, region or religion, making it a pan India association, a rare community representation.

Affordable health services and friendly health consultations are always valued among expatriates, sadly, many remain deprived of the basic health services. As a result, apart from lack of awareness, the timely diagnosis is also essential in today’s lifestyle. IGCC felt the commitment towards such a requirement and decided to take the initiative of organizing a Free Health Camp. A healthy population is the main asset of any nation as it’s the main resource of present and determination of its future. Hence, IGCC felt that organizing such health camp was the best thing they could do in service of their nation.

The IGCC Project Leaders Abdul Malik and Mr. Salman have taken lead in implementing the ethos of association in the Kuwait Chapter which is presided over by Ammanulla Poppere. The Vice-presidents Harminder Sabharwal and K. Gangadahr joined hands together with general secretary Mr. Hanif and Treasurer Abdul Bari.

The camps was spearheaded as a convenor by the core member Sandip Chhabba and supported by other members. IGCC shares the success of this altruistic service camp with the entire team of Badr-Al-Sama medical Centre Farwaniya under the leadership of GM Ashraf Ayyor, Admin Manager Abdul Razzak and Marketing head Mr. Nitin, an eminent team of doctors, nurses and other support staff. The support of corporates and individuals like Landmark Group ,BMA Group ,Jashanmal and Ajmal Perfumes was also commendable for their voluntary participation and goodwill gestures during the camp.
