One of our corporate ethos, enhancing our SBI Life brand value, is about giving back to the society. In line with our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives, the cause of supporting our Elderly Citizens was initiated. Incidence of cataract blindness, annually at 3.28 million, is one of the most prevalent health ailments suffered by old people, particularly in rural pockets of our country.
On the occasion of World Elder’s Day on 1st October, CSR initiative - "Gift Drishti" (Restoring vision) was launched in partnership with HelpAge India, a registered national level voluntary body, working for the cause of disadvantaged aged persons. Restoring vision is done through Intra Ocular Surgery (IOL). SBI Life employees made monetary contributions to the cause. SBI Life donated twice the sum contributed by its employees. Eye sight for thousands of elderly citizens was restored across the rural parts of the country.
