Chennai, TN – [08.11.2023]: Omega Healthcare, a leader in healthcare outsourcing services, announced the evolution of its CSR wing into the Omega Forum for Social Impact (OFSI) on November 6.
Omega Forum for Social Impact (OFSI), registered as a Section 8 Company, integrates healthcare with socio-economic upliftment, focusing on critical areas like maternal, menstrual, and mental wellness. OFSI’s approach combines preventive and curative health services to foster resilient and self-sustaining communities.
It empowers through entrepreneurial enablement, microcredit, and skill development, with special emphasis on women as drivers of community prosperity.
The foundation’s genesis was celebrated with a unique community event in Tharangambadi, near Karaikal on the coast of Tamil Nadu, on October 20. This set a collaborative tone for the official launch. The pre-launch celebration, attended by community members from Hyderabad, Bidar in Karnataka, as well as Chidambaram and Trichy in Tamil Nadu, was a testament to OFSI’s grassroots philosophy. In this philosophy, communities are not just beneficiaries but active partners in change. Having already impacted 46,775 lives, OFSI is poised to amplify its outreach and deepen its roots in the communities it serves.
The grand launch event on November 6 celebrated OFSI’s strategic vision but also highlighted the foundation’s alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), showcasing a roadmap for impactful initiatives and partnerships. OFSI’s roadmap includes expanding health education, increasing microcredit accessibility, and scaling up skill development programs over the next five years.
