DEMPO responded to the appeal to business houses made by the Goa Chamber of Commerce & Industry (GCCI) in assisting the Hospicio in refurbishing itself. The Hospicio is the main civil hospital in the South Goa district. The Chamber had joined the initiative along with a number of like-minded industry associations in response to the appeal made by the Government of Goa through its Minister of Labour. Items of linen and utilities needed by the hospital were determined and their cost estimated, with a number of industrial houses contributing towards these costs, DEMPO offering Rs. 50,000/- to the cause. Health being one of the key DEMPO concerns, it is natural for us to do our bit to make a difference to the state’s health care system in a small but caring way!
