During the COVID-19 global pandemic, we joined hands with PM Cares Fund to help the citizens of our country. We encouraged our customers to donate in order to enhance research, strengthen disaster management, provide essentials to medical staff and build capacities for quick emergency responses. We matched the amount donated by our customers to play our part in helping those affected by the outbreak. During the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, we contributed to the 'Give India Foundation' to provide medical essentials to hospitals in Maharashtra. We worked towards arranging the medical equipment such as N-95 masks, PPE kits, sanitisers, pulse oximeters in the hospitals.
