Anglo-French Drug & Industries one of the leading pharmaceutical companies in India, donated a Vestibulator to SRCC, a children’s hospital in Mumbai. The Vestibulator will be used to aid in the recovery of children with neurological issues, especially those suffering from autism and cerebral palsy. The machine itself is unique and state-of-the-art and was custom-made by IIT for SRCC; it is only the second of its kind in Mumbai. It will help in meeting the needs of the lower economic strata parents whose children will need therapy for various medical issues. The machine was officially inaugurated by Mr. Abhay Kanoria, Chairman & Managing Director, Anglo-French Drugs & Industries Ltd. at the official inaugural ceremony held by SRCC Centre for Child Development on 17th June at their Mumbai hospital.

The machine was donated to the hospital to expand its services to cater to the needs of children who would need physiotherapy. By using the machine the hospital aims to help children to recover faster and better and go back to leading a healthier life, which always has been the AFDIL’s mission when it comes to providing the best healthcare services.

Talking at the inaugural ceremony Mr. Abhay Kanoria, Chairman & Managing Director, Anglo-French Drugs & Industries Limited said, “As an organization, we are committed to provide whatever help possible to create a great healthcare ecosystem. The reason we chose to donate this particular machine is that we felt that there is little focus on the vestibular system and how fixing it can aid in the well-being of children with neurological disorders, the incidences of which are on the rise. Our contribution to SRCC is our first step towards it. We hope that by way of this machine the needy children will get the best in class services.”
