In the Foyer, participants received registration assistance and were honored with commemorative T-shirts, symbolizing their role as champions of cleanliness. The event was graced by the presence of esteemed dignitaries who joined hands with all participants to take the Swachhata Pledge, a solemn oath affirming their unwavering commitment to cleanliness and hygiene.
Dispatch vehicles stood at the ready, symbolizing the mobilization of teams to various event sites, primed to undertake the day’s tasks with unwavering enthusiasm. The true spirit of “Shramdaan” (voluntary labor) came alive as participants engaged in meaningful activities at all event sites, embodying the ethos of selfless service.
High-ranking officials and dignitaries from the Ministry actively participated in Shramdaan activities at the Foyer and Central Lawn, setting a compelling example of leadership. Cleaning and a multitude of other activities continued tirelessly at event sites, a testament to the unyielding collective dedication to the cause of cleanliness.
As the day drew to a close, a sense of accomplishment filled the air. Participants were rewarded for their dedication with Jute Bags and Refreshments as tokens of appreciation, marking the culmination of the event.
AIIMS Director M Srinivas expressed his pride in the event, stating, “Swachhata Hi Seva 2023 is a reflection of the indomitable spirit of our citizens. It is a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi’s vision of a cleaner and healthier India.”
Professor in Charge of Media Cell Rima Dada said that a clean India will lay the foundation of a healthy India. She said we need to increase awareness regarding the single use of plastics.
India generates 26000 metric tonnes of plastic daily, and 10000 metric tonnes pollute our environment. It enters water bodies and food chains and has endocrine-disrupting chemicals.
She said further AIIMS, under CSR with Indian Oil, has installed reverse vending machines for their proper disposal. We have machines for the disposal and incineration of sanitary napkins.
AIIMS is committed to reducing pollution and has 50 E-vehicles and E-buses for patient movement and cycles for staff and doctors. The programme was organised by Abdul from hospital administration and saw the participation of doctors, students, scientists, nurses, paramedics, and sanitary and security staff
