CSR & Volunteering
A firm’s implementation of CSR goes beyond compliance and engages in actions that appear to further some social good, beyond the interests of the firm and that which is required by law. CSR strategies encourage the company to make a positive impact on the environment and stakeholders including consumers, employees, investors, communities, and others. It is about how companies manage the business processes to produce an overall positive impact on society.
In India, cancer hospitals are overcrowded and preference is given to those patients whose disease has scope for control and cure, either through surgery, chemotherapy or radiation or a combination of the three. Several terminally ill cancer patients on account of poverty, ignorance and total lack of basic facilities do not receive the required medical and nursing care. It is against this background, several corporates can participate and contribute towards providing palliative care at Karunashraya for critically ill cancer patients to make a positive difference in their lives during their last days.
