Hyundai Motor India Ltd. today distributed over 10 000 Khadi masks across multiple slums of Mumbai. The reusable Khadi masks have been distributed to help the underprivileged residents of Mumbai slums protect themselves from the ongoing pandemic.
Commenting on the Project – ‘Rakshak’ under Hyundai Cares 2.0 CSR Program, Mr. Tarun Garg, Director (Sales, Marketing & Service), Hyundai Motor India Ltd. said, “As a responsible and caring brand, Hyundai has been leading on the CSR front since the beginning of COVID-19 outbreak in India. Under Hyundai Cares 2.0 CSR Program, the distribution of over 10 000 masks across various slums of Mumbai, is an extension of our community healing endeavor to create a Safe and Healthy Environment for masses. The reusable Khadi masks have been consciously procured from the self-reliant groups to support them financially and proudly make them a part of India’s fight against the pandemic.”
Since the lockdown, Hyundai has been at the forefront in providing COVID-19 relief measures and has extended its support to the Government of Maharashtra in April 2020 in the form of PPE kits, masks (3-Ply and N-95), sanitisers and dry rations. These measures have continued to help our frontline warriors, support workers, healthcare staff and those sections of society that have been severely impacted by this Covid-19 pandemic.
During phase 2 of Hyundai Cares, Hyundai will support India’s indigenous fabric ‘Khadi’ and drive sanitization campaign in Districts/Tehsils for a safe and healthy environment for the citizens of India.
