Godrej earmarks Rs 50 crore for Covid-19 relief work
The Godrej Group has set aside an investment of Rs 50 crore ($7.2 million) for the support and relief work to overcome the coronavirus pandemic.
The fund will be utilised to strengthen the public health and delivery of essential supplies to the needy. The company has stated that it will add more money to its relief fund in the coming months.
“Godrej Group is exploring how it can leverage its medical refrigerators business as well as construction capabilities to build quarantine rooms, and utilise its vast expertise in mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems for hospitals,” it said in a statement.
“In terms of medical equipment and protective supplies, the company has already started work in Maharashtra. The State is among the most affected regions, with roughly 21 percent of total cases. Similar support would be extended to other States as well,” it added.
Godrej had earlier launched an initiative called 'Protekt India Movement', under which it has distributed one million packets of Mr Magic powder-to-liquid hand wash for free.
