GJSCI Con­ducts Free Eye Check-up Camp For SEEPZ Ar­ti­sans

Solitaire - - SPECTRUM -

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.
