TDT | Manama
The Indian Community Relief Fund (ICRF) yesterday kick-started its “Thirst-Quenchers” programme aimed at raising awareness on the procedures that must be followed to make summer safe for workers. The activity, now in its fifth year, educates workers on the importance of drinking enough water to stay hydrated and how to remain healthy amid high summer temperatures.
The weekly event, ICRF said, would distribute bottled water and fruits to workers for the next 8 to 10 weeks at various worksites. The first event of the series was held yesterday at Charilaos Apostolides (Bahrain) WLL (CHAPO) worksite in Budaiya with the participation of 200 workers.
ICRF volunteers also distributed face masks and anti-bacterial soaps, along with flyers explaining measures to remain safe during COVID-19. ICRF Thirst Quenchers convenor Sudheer Thirunilath, ICRF Volunteers Suresh Kumar, Muralikrishnan, Sunil Kumar, and Nisha Rangarajan took part in yesterday’s event.
