Around 200 workers benefited from a summer campaign organised by the Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) at two worksites the Courtyard project in Seef and Dana Mall project in Sanabis.
Bottled water, fruits and biscuits were distributed as part of the ICRF’s ‘Thirst Quenchers’ drive this summer. The initiative was carried out as part of its efforts to support the Labour and Social Development Ministry’s campaign to keep workers hydrated and safe during the summer.
The tenth series helped hundreds of construction workers toiling under the summer heat. ICRF volunteers have also distributed face masks and anti-bacterial soaps, along with flyers that explain the measures that can be followed to stay safe during COVID-19.
The basic purpose of such activity is to teach workers on the importance of drinking water and encourage them on how to be healthy during the summer stated the organisation.
ICRF Thirst-Quenchers team intends to continue this weekly event until the end of September in various worksites as they are one of the most affected, toiling under the summer heat.
ICRF Thirst Quenchers Convenor Sudheer Thirunilath and ICRF Volunteers Clifford Correa, Pavithran Neeleswaram, Sunil Kumar and Muralikrishnan were present at the event.
