As a pivotal part of its ongoing Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) activities, Orissa Stevedores Limited (OSL) held an eye-testing camp at a local school situated in the periphery of this premier port city in Odisha recently and distributed free spectacles to those students who were diagnosed with eye-sight defects.
The prescribed spectacles were given away to the students of Balijhara Ganapati Sishu Vidya Mandir by the OSL at a special programme organized for the pious purpose.
While eyes of a total number of 324 school students were examined by the eye specialists, 32 students were diagnosed having low vision defects. Accordingly, power glasses were prescribed and the requisite spectacles were distributed to the identified students free of cost on the spot.
The special programme was graced by Paradip Municipality Chairperson Basant Biswal as the chief guest and he gave away the free spectacles to the needy students.
