Our truckers are on the roads for over months, and they lack access to the basic needs for maintaining a hygienic lifestyle.
Insufficient sleep, unhygienic working conditions, poor family relationships, improper food facility, immense work pressure takes a toll on truckers’ health.
As a result, 40% of truck drivers face some kind of stomach problem and about 77% of them experience backache problems.
To help our truckers tackle this situation, we started the “Swasthya (Wellness program)”.
Highlights of the campaign
— Provided easy access to sanitizers, face mask, hand wash, and gloves in every truck so that they can use them whenever required.
— Educated them on sexual health, and the necessary precautions they should take to keep themselves (and their families) safe.
— Had several sessions with our truckers and taught them the importance of having an emergency first-aid kit and the way they can use it.
— Made them aware of personal hygiene, how to stay clean and how to maintain hygienic habits while on the road.
