SOME CSR INITIATIVES BY APOLLO TOWARDS THE SOCIETY:

Apollo Dil Ki Daud, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, New Delhi
"Apollo Dil Ki Daud", a mini marathon organized by Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals in
support with the Billion Hearts Beating Campaign, in an endeavor to spread awareness
about prevention of heart disease and to emphasize the importance of a healthy
lifestyle. 1000 people participated in the mini marathon supported by the Billion Hearts
Beating Campaign.
The marathon was supported by Manish Chaudhury, President, Delhi University
Student Union along with CWG wrestlers Rajv Tomar, Anuj Chaudhary & Jaiprakash
Nath; famous swimmer Khajan Singh; singers Ashok Masti and Shankar Sahini who feel
that there is a huge need for such events to generate awareness among the masses.
200 doctors and nurses from Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals also ran for the cause.
Heart disease is the biggest killer in urban India today. It is estimated that 60% of the
world's heart disease will belong to India (and Indians) in the near future. Indians are
genetically prone to heart disease. Our sedentary and stressed modern lifestyle just
multiplies the risk.In fact, an Indian is four times as likely to suffer from heart disease as
compared to his Western counterpart. A heart attack also brings a lot of emotional
turmoil for the family; it doesn't only affect the one who gets a heart attack.
Addressing this concern, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals brought together 1000 people
from Sarita Vihar, Jasola Vihar, Sukhdev Vihar, Ashram, Friends Colony, New Friends
Colony, Defence Colony, GK-I, Jamia, etc, motivating them throughout the marathon
would be a team of doctors present, also participating to spread awareness on the need
of a healthy heart.

SAHI - Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired
Small deeds make a big difference. This was the inspiration behind establishing SAHI'-
Society to Aid the Hearing Impaired.
SAHI seeks to identify hearing impaired children, mainly in rural areas, with little or no
access to modern medical treatment. It is a scientifically proven fact that as children
grow and develop they learn about sound with little effort. But it can be a daunting task
for a child with hearing impairment to understand sounds and develop language &
communication skills, which in turn affects the child's personal development and
process of reasoning and education.
To address this and many more such problems associated with the hearing impaired,
renowned medical professionals at Apollo Hospitals along with a group of concerned
citizens volunteer their services for SAHI.
