Mangaluru: Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (MRPL), has sponsored Water Purifiers worth Rs 16.75 lakhs in 36 Schools in and around its Refinery premises and with an additional cost of Rs 6.64 Lakh has provided napkin-burning incinerators to 48 Government Schools and PU Colleges around it’s vicinity.

Water purifiers were installed in Schools of Thokur, Jokatte, Ucchilagudde, Madhya, Nadugudde, Nadugodu, Meenadi, Kinya etc. benefitting nearly 5,000 students. Napkin Burning incinerators were provided in Schools and PU colleges of Gandhinagara, Kuthethur, Jokatte, Kenjar, Kasaba, Borugudde, Katipalla, Mullakadu, Baikampady etc aiming to benefit 2341 Girls studying in these institutions.

MRPL under its Flagship CSR initiative “Arogya Samrakshan” had initiated a informal survey to identified Healthcare related issues in Government Schools around Mangalore for bolstering Hygiene and promoting healthcare among the future citizens of the country.

During this survey it was found that Pure Drinking water and a safe napkin burning arrangement were the dire issues facing nearly 38 Government Schools and Colleges around MRPL.

With the harsh summer season setting in, many Government schools in Coastal region around Mangalore are finding difficulty in providing Hygienic Drinking water for their students.

With well and bore water levels receding chances of contamination of drinking water sources maximise thereby putting the health of young children at risk.

Similarly during the study it was also identified that nearly 38 High schools and PUC colleges were in need of means for burning of sanitary napkins for hygiene of the surroundings.

Hence, MRPL under it’s “Arogya Samrakshan” CSR initiative took quick steps to mitigate these two issues among these Government Institutions at an expense of nearly Rs 25 Lakh.

“Health and Hygiene are key for the Children of Government Students to excel in their academics; our CSR efforts under Arogya Samrakshan focus to help them realize their dreamss” said Krishna Hegde GGM HR of MRPL. Manoj Kumar CGM steered the project. (Photo: Maltesh HM GM CSR symbolically distributed the facilities to one of the beneficiary schools).
