Masks are playing a crucial role in controlling the spread of COVID – 19, and in keeping the community safe. In our societies and condominiums, we find many of our front-line workers (house helpers, security, couriers, guards, etc.) not wearing masks due to unavailability of proper masks.
Amplus Solar, as part of its CSR activity, has pledged to make available 1 million reusable cloth masks to the front-line workers. We have already committed to contribute 14 Lakhs for this initiative through our own funds. We are actively working in Gurgaon to reduce the spread factor in the city and have started distributing masks to various societies as well as to government workers through DC Gurgaon.
We have collaborated with Urmul, an NGO, to procure the masks being used for this drive. This has enabled us to magnify the impact of our initiative. We are providing a livelihood to the ones who have lost their jobs, while securing the safety of the ones in need.
All the masks distributed in this initiative are being procured from multiple NGOs that are utilising the manpower of the underprivileged workers. The money being used by us to buy these masks would go to the underprivileged artisans whose work has been struck badly due to the pandemic. It is directly going to the people in dire need of basic income and employment. We have also collaborated with Urmul for the same. Urmul is an NGO that focuses on the upliftment of vulnerable and marginal sections of the society – women and children and has been actively making an impact through health, livelihoods, education, governance and advocacy interventions. This enables us in maximising the impact of our initiative.
Our distribution drive started with our employees at the forefront. These drives started with societies and the DC Office, Gurgaon. We have covered multiple residentials societies and the number is growing by the day. With the help of more volunteers, we plan to take this initiative to a higher level for a better social cause.
Join us in our Mask Distribution Drive to help us achieve our target of ensuring better safety for a million people, spreading a million smiles.
