GJSCI Conducts Free Eye Check-up Camp For SEEPZ Artisans
Gems & Jewellery Skill Council of India (GJSCI) conducted a free two-day eye check-up camp for jewellery artisans working at the Santacruz Electronics Export Processing Zone (SEEPZ) in Mumbai on April 17th and 18th. GJSCI has been working relentlessly for the betterment of the labour force in the gems and jewellery sector and the free eye check-up camp was one of several initiatives.
According to the GJSCI, the jewellery creation process can cause a strain on the eyes as each piece can take several hours to be crafted to perfection. “In this process, the eyes do get exerted and it is thus essential to undergo timely check-ups,” it noted. The camp witnessed a footfall of 500 artisans over two days.
“At GJSCI, our aim is to help the labour force of the industry to live a better quality life. Such health drives create health consciousness as well as help the artisans diagnose any ailments they may be suffering from. The health campaign received an overwhelming response and we are glad that the industry and its people warmly embraced our initiatives,” said Binit Bhatt, CEO of GJSCI.
