Signify-FINISH make a splash for illuminating 5 PHCs in Udaipur
Signify, the world leader in lighting, recently illuminated 5 primary health centers (PHC) in Udaipur, Rajasthan under its Swasthya Kiran CSR program. The idea and execution of the project created a major buzz in local media both in Udaipur and Jaipur and the credit for this should go to FINISH Society Regional Manager Naval Sharma, Signify team member Rakesh Kumar Singh and FINISH team member Sanjay Srivastava for galvanizing coverage from over a dozen media publications in both Udaipur and Jaipur.The project, executed in partnership with FINISH Society, will provide stable, clean and reliable energy supply to these health centers, thereby ensuring better access to health care services for more than 1 lakh people in the district. The project includes the installation of a 2.5 KW solar energy power plant along with energy efficient lights and fans in each health center. The solar power plant will enable the centers to function even in the absence of power supply and will be especially relevant in this arid region, considering the extreme weather conditions during the summer months. The project was recently inaugurated by Shri Tara Chand Meena, IAS, District Magistrate, Udaipur. He highly commended Signify and FINISH Society for their efforts and bringing their synergies for the benefit of the citizens in the district.
“We are delighted to illuminate 5 primary health centers in Udaipur, Rajasthan under our Swasthya Kiran CSR program. Our intent is to provide good quality illumination in these centers, thereby enabling better access to medical services while also ensuring long term sustainability. We shall keep moving towards our goal of touching many more lives in the future with our CSR projects,” said Natasha Wadhwa, Head – CSR, Signify Innovations India Limited.
Inaugurating the event, Mr Abhijit Banerji, Member Secretary, FINISH Society said, “It is a privilege to be associated with Signify and continue working towards betterment of the society. In the second phase of the Swasthya Kiran program, we are glad to partner with the company to provide quality medical services to citizens of Udaipur who will no longer face power supply obstructions and will also be able to save on cost and energy simultaneously with the solar power plant installed by Signify.”
FINISH Society with Signify is ensuring that the rural population of Udaipur gets uninterrupted healthcare services by providing solar energy to primary health centers of the city.
