At Stedman, we firmly believe that it is the responsibility of every corporate to nurture and give back to the surrounding community. Our commitment to this cause and the involvement shown by our employees make it possible for us to do what best we can to foster our community. Here are some of our recent activities:
 
Udavum Karangal (Helping Hands) Sponsor a Child
Udavum Karangal (http://udavumkarangal.org) is a registered non-governmental, non-religious and non-profit social service organization, established in 1983, with sole objective of serving people in distress who are orphans destitute. These children are the future of our nation. Stedman has been regularly contributing to their Annual Child Sponsorship Schemes.
 
Anaemia Awareness Campaign
India has the highest prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia among children, women and child-bearing women in the world. As more than half of our population is under 25 years of age, it is important that adolescent girls are aware of one of the most important health risks that they, and in future their offsprings face. This year, Stedman has taken up the cause to promote Anaemia Awareness among adolescent girls, who are the future mothers of India. As part of this campaign, Stedman has been organising guest lectures and haemoglobin tests in women's colleges around the country, conducted by leading gynaecologists.

 
Free Medical Camps
Stedman regularly participates in free medical camps organized by colleges and social organizations by distributing free medicines and pamphlets. One such campaign we participated was organized by C.L. Baid Mehta College of Pharmacy, Thorapakkam, Chennai in association with Thorapakkam Ladies Club at the college campus. About 20 medical practitioners were invited from various city hospitals - Andhra Mahila Sabha Hospital, Sri Sankara Hospital (Formerly Tamil Nadu Hospital) and Lifeline hospital. Volunteers from Stedman attended the camp and free medicines from Stedman were distributed to the patients by the medical practitioners.
 
Tsunami Relief
The south-eastern coastal regions of India were devastated by the giant Tsunami on the morning of December 26th 2004, causing widespread damage to life and property. Stedman has donated free medicines for people in tsunami-affected areas in the districts of Tamil Nadu.
