With summer already here, community organizations are gearing up to promote and spread awareness on a healthy and safe summer. The Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) is coordinating an awareness campaign which is being organized by the Ministry of Labour & Social Development.

The campaign is for the purpose of reducing the Occupational Accidents and Diseases during the Summer Season and to raise the occupational awareness of both employers and workers on the importance of prevention as clarified in the Ministerial Order No. 3 of 2013 with respect to Work Ban during summer. It will be held at the Bahrain Keraleeya Samajam premises, Segaya, on Wednesday, 10 July 2019 starting at 6 pm.

As part of the event, there will be a team of doctors and nurses to provide medical checkup for summer diseases. Also, a number of multi-lingual awareness leaflets will be distributed during this summer. Employers and workers have been invited to participate in this seminar to know more about how to be healthy and safe during the summer of 2019.

Meanwhile, as part of Workers' Welfare Project, ICRF in coordination with AXA Insurance staff and other individuals also distributed dry ration such as rice, oil, sugar, milk powder and more to around 70 workers at a labour camp in New Zinj.
