The health and well-being of our employees and communities is critical to the Manrik Group and has been promoted both internally and externally through the Amrit Foundation Trust. Internally, the management has organized for employee medical insurance covers, which are supported by in-house medical clinics in some of the units.
Externally, medical camps are run with the joint support of other partners. In Amboseli the county representatives conduct periodic health talks and medical check-ups. Medical camps are also conducted in conjunction with other partners and volunteers from various countries. Amrit Foundation Trust has also made contributions towards children requiring heart operations, neuro-surgery and chemotherapy both locally and overseas. Apart from this, the foundation continuously supports persons with special needs as well as persons living with disability.
In addition, the management has supported sports initiatives like football/soccer and volleyball teams in some units to keep staff motivated and healthy. Our initiatives in healthcare include:
GURU NANAK SIKH HOSPITAL – MAKINDU
The Amrit Foundation Trust constructed and established the Guru Nanak Sikh Hospital Makindu, a project initiated and completed by our founding Chairman, the Late Harbans Singh Amrit. The hospital aims to provide affordable healthcare options to the community. The hospital, foundation and partners conduct regular free medical camps for the community.
NYUMBA YA WAZEE – KASARANI, NAIROBI
The home hosts elderly people in the community mostly from the age of 76 and above. It is important to note that the home depends on well-wishers and donations to ensure that they are able to meet the day-to-day requirements of the elderly members. The foundation supports this home through donation of food items, cleaning detergents as well as having a sharing session with the elderly and their caregivers.
