With COVID-19 spreading its tentacles rapidly across the world, Governments are coming up with solutions to help their populations sail through these testing times.
With lockdowns and social distancing in place, our Government is playing its role through its efforts to spread awareness and taking measures to combat COVID-19.But in this Herculean task, individual citizens as well as organisations need to come forward to shoulder the responsibility and jointly take up the fight against the virus.
Gati, a household name in India and one of the leaders in the express logistics space, recently acquired by Allcargo, with help of its CSR team has always been in the forefront of worthy social causes, with the desire to serve society and fellow beings being part of its DNA.
On 11th April 2020, the team organised distribution of 200 kits (with 15 grocery items each), which could serve a family of four for one week, to migrant labourers and the needy from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Orissa, Jharkhand, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, who have lost their daily earnings due to the lockdown.
Localities Served: Madhuban Colony, Padamsalipuram Village, Shivrampally Village, Attapur Village and Rajendra Nagar in Hyderabad
