Upgradation of Surgery Operating Theatre Complex at the General Hospital, Solapur
Precision Foundation recently worked on the upgradation of the General Surgery Operation Theatre Complex at the General Hospital, Solapur for the benefit of the patients and the medical students at large. The ‘B’ block at the General Hospital, Solapur houses the department of Surgery. The upgradation of the General Surgery Operation Theatre included getting LED OT lamps, Ceiling Pendants with flexible gas pipe lines, Hydraulic Surgical Operating Tables in all four OTs, UPS and batteries and also equipment like C Arm, Craniotome, Cautery machines etc. for use during complicated surgeries.
A camera with zoom in zoom out facility is provided in every OT and is connected to a TV in the ‘Students gallery’ which too has been renovated. UG and PG students would be able to observes surgeries being conducted in these OTs sitting in the gallery. The Alumni Association and Dept. of Surgery of Dr. Vaishampayan Memorial Government Medical College (VMGMC) also contributed to this project.
The upgraded OT’s were handed over to VMGMC and Dept. of Surgery, General Hospital Solapur at the hands of the DMER Maharashtra State, Padmashri Dr. Tatyarao Lahane and in the presence of Dean Dr.Shubhalaxmi Jaiswal, Dr. Sunil Ghate, President of Alumni Association and Dr. Manjiri Chitale on 7th June 2019.
Watershed management in 6 villages from North Solapur Taluka
Precision Foundation as a part of CSR of Precision Camshafts Limited, helped 6 villages from North Solapur Taluka, namely Kalaman, Raanmasale, Kondi, Wadala, Akkalkoti and Wangi, for the machine work in order to improve watershed in these draught prone areas. JCB’s and excavators were provided for increasing the depth of rivulets, making trenches, digging pits for plantation etc.. These villages are participating in the Water Cup competition. This pre-monsoon preparation would certainly help increase water storage in these villages and would also improve ground water levels.
The Satyamev Jayate Water Cup is an annual competition organized by Paani Foundation in which villages compete to do the best work in rainwater harvesting and watershed management. The foundation selects drought-hit tehsils, trains a group of residents in watershed development and organizes a 45-day ‘water cup’ contest among villages to see who creates the maximum possible rainwater storage capacity, thereby gaming water conservation. Villages build water conservation structures through Shramdaan (voluntary labour), raise money for machine work, test and treat soil, budget water usage, implement water saving technologies, etc. Paani Foundation makes technical help available to the participants.
