AURANGABAD: GP Petroleums Ltd (GPPL), a leading lubricant manufacturer in India and part of UAE-based GP Global, organized and hosted an oral health check-up and safety camp for mechanics of the small town of Sillod near Aurangabad today.

Commenting on the effort and thought of the camp, Mr. Prashanth Achar, CEO, GP Petroleums Ltd., said, “We are happy and delighted to be able to organize this camp for oral cancer and the general healthcare of the mechanics of Sillod as they do not have easy access or awareness of the medical treatments available today. This is a small step that we wish to take as a company, not just in Sillod but eventually branching out in other districts as well. We intend to provide the necessary health assistance, and simultaneously create awareness about the measures to be taken to lead a better life. The health camp is our step and support towards creating a healthier society and lifestyle.”
Also as a token of goodwill, GP Petroleums handed over tree saplings to each mechanic encapsulating the larger theme of the EHS drive – Environment, Health and Safety to raise awareness about environmental degradation and promote a greener surrounding.
