As the entire world battles unprecedented challenges posed by the Coronavirus pandemic,
HEALTHCARE INFRASTRUCTURE ENHANCEMENT
With the help of implementation partner United Way Mumbai, we contributed towards augmenting the healthcare infrastructure in the country. Public hospitals have been supported through the provisioning of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) comprising N95 masks, 3-ply disposable masks, surgical caps, surgical goggles, waterproof gowns, shoe covers, gloves for the safety of healthcare workers, sanitizer dispensers, additional ICU beds, and non-contact thermometers for medical preparedness.
FOOD SECURITY AND OTHER HYGIENE ESSENTIALS
We joined hands with CARE India to provide dry-ration kits to meet specific nutritional needs of various underprivileged groups such as migrant workers, daily wage earners and people living with HIV/AIDS across the country. Approximately 1.8 lakh+ people benefited through the three-month long programme beginning June 2020.
We leveraged our extensive supply and distribution network to distribute hydrating beverages to our communities living on the margins and frontline warriors serving the nation during the hot weather conditions. In addition to these initiatives, we are tirelessly working with several Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and NGOs such as Akshaya Patra Foundation, Vanarai, Chintan, Hasiru Dala, Manthan Sansthan and American India Foundation among others towards providing free meals to the distressed communities and relief to waste workers through provisioning of dry rations, PPEs, and emergency medical funds.
