Medical care services provider Apollo Hospitals on Friday joined hands with Sterlite Industries to support heart surgeries for 50 children from economically weaker sections.

Apollo Hospitals Managing Director Ms Preetha Reddy and Sterlite Industries CFO Mr Sushil Gupta inked the pact to help needy children under Apollo's Save a Child's Heart (SACH), a corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiative of the health services major.

Later, Mr Gupta said his company was involved in a number of CSR initiatives, including helping women self help groups and said it looked forward to carry on with more efforts with Apollo Hospitals.

Citing the growing number of children born with heart problems, Ms Preetha Reddy said more such sponsors were the need of the hour as timely treatment can help many affected children lead a normal life.

The SACH Foundation was presently working in Chennai and Hyderabad and would soon step into Ahmedabad also, she said.

According to a release, under the SACH scheme, 30,000 children have been screened so far in the country and over 1,000 under-privileged children had undergone surgeries. – PTI
