"Children's Health, The Nation's Wealth" is the motto that all the staff of UAE Exchange Shamshabad branch held close to their heart. The second phase of the Pulse Polio Immunization program, was held across India on February 24th. The branch also decided to take part in this initiative of the India government to make efforts in the development and welfare of children.
The staff covered 8 villages travelling in the company van, creating awareness among local people about the program and inviting them to come and get their children immunized. On the Pulse Polio Immunization program day, the employees of Shamshabad branch Mr. Joji Reddy , Mr. Sammaiah, Mr. Naveen, Mr. Tirupati, Mr. Mahender and Mr. Balakrishna devoted their man hours and helped in administering the vaccine to about 600 children up to 5 years of age. The children who had come for the immunization program were welcomed with sweets and biscuits. They also took this opportunity to educate the parents on routine immunization and why it is important for the children.
Mr. V George Antony , Director and Country Head commented, "UAE Exchange's employees select the social activities based on the company's focused areas of environment, health, and education. We allow them to get involved in local activities and so in a year, somewhere in India, a UAE Exchange employee will be contributing something to society."
UAE Exchange promotes the culture of lending a helping hand to the society whenever possible. This motivates the staff to spare their time, knowledge, and other resources for the benefit of the society and experience the joy of sharing and caring. It also helps to inspire the spirit of social volunteering in the employees.
