With the increasing cases of Coronavirus reported, most of us are compelled to stay indoors to ensure social distancing and safety and be less prone to contracting the dreaded virus. Pourakarmikas, unlike us, bear the task of keeping our city clean and remain exposed to the environment that is currently grappled with spread of the contagious virus through community transmission. Thus, it is of utmost importance for these social warriors to maintain physical wellbeing and undergo deworming once in six months to boost immunity.
Speaking on the launch of nutritional program for the Pourakarmikas, Mr Mahendra Jain – President of HRWA & Mr. Mohankumar P K – Vice President of HRWA who initiated this outreach healthcare support program said, “On our 74th Independence Day, we are pleased to announce the launch of this nutritional program for our hardworking Pourakarmikas that offers an awareness program, health check-ups and nutritional food supplements to ensure their holistic wellbeing. I am sure, through this program, we will be able to help them improve their overall health and be able to defend themselves from COVID-19 and other chronic lifestyle diseases.”
Speaking on the importance of maintaining a good personal hygiene, especially during waste management for the Pourakarmikas, Dr Govardhan, Ph.D, Senior Food Scientist – Enlightlife said, “One needs to realise that our daily basic habits like brushing, taking baths, washing our hands with soap before and after eating, and using toilets, etc. have significant impact on our health. These simple yet basic habits, if followed religiously, can make a big difference to protect us from Covid-19, take care of our personal health and hygiene is vital to avoid infection. Make wearing of masks mandatory before stepping out and practice hand hygiene; wear gloves at work and especially during handling waste.
