The medical equipment was handed over to Dr. Umraskar, Health Officer at Government Sub-District Hospital, Chicalim Vasco in the presence of Shri Mauvin Godinho, the Hon’ble Minister for Transport & Panchayat, Goa.

The equipment from HCCB, in association with the Indian Red Cross Society, Goa, comes as a vital asset for the Marmugao Taluk, since the hospital caters to the rural areas of Dabolim, Bogmalo, Sancoale, Sada, New Vaddem and parts of Verna Industrial Estate.

The area had been severely affected during the second wave of the pandemic due to the lack of a proper treatment facility. People in the Taluk were forced to travel to far distances for treatment such as Goa Medical College, Bambolim or the South District Hospital. With the equipment provided by HCCB, people from the local community will be able to avail treatment facilities at the hospital free of cost.
