* To conduct Free Eye checkups to the poor senior citizens
Hyderabad Based MaxiVision Eye hospitals group to celebrate World Senior Citizens day on Saturday on 21st Aug as part of their CSR initiative to create awareness on issues affecting older age people. We can do more to make life easier for our aging population and enable them to live with dignity. Unfortunately, many elderly people are left to isolation and marginalization in a lot of communities with no one paying attention to their deteriorating health conditions. More support is needed for senior citizens to live the life with nobility.
World Senior citizen’s day is observed every year on 21st Aug to create awareness on issues relating to older people such as degenerating of health with age and abuse of elderly people etc.MaxiVision has always been in the forefront to extend support to those poor elderly people who have done a lot for the society but lack physical, moral support in their ripe age. In the past few years Maxi Vision has extended support to thousands of poor senior citizens by offering free eye checkups, free eyeglasses distribution, Diabetes, Hypertension checkups, etc. on the occasion, recognizing and remembering their contribution to the society and thanked them for their services.
As a gesture towards all older people in the society, MaxiVision intends to play its part in the cause this year as well, as part of its corporate social responsibility, Said Mr. Sudheer -CEO.
