We participated in the Green India Challenge Initiative, planting over 3,000 saplings at Medipally village in Telangana in partnership with police department and Rotary Club. Our employees and their families actively joined this plantation drive, contributing to a greener future. Moreover, in partnership with the Pollution Control Board, we organised an awareness session on individual lifestyle changes for reducing environmental degradation and mitigating climate change.
Our healthcare interventions included free health camps in the villages where our manufacturing facilities are located, offering health check-ups, eye check-ups and distributing medical kits. Over 1,500 persons from the communities received free medical services, including consultations with doctors in various specialties, and those in need received free medicines and spectacles.
To address medical emergencies, we have donated an ambulance to Gaddapotharam Gram Panchayat, Sangareddy district, Telangana, to support medical emergency transportation services for patients covering six villages. We have also donated funds for nutritional support to Tuberculosis (TB) patients under Ni-Kshay Mitra program of the Central Government.
As part of the women empowerment initiative, we have sponsored She Shuttle bus, connected with GPRS and a woman guard to ensure safety of women workforce ferrying to the factories in Bonthapally village. Also, the Company has supported sports infrastructure development in a girls’ high school.
We have supported creation of sustainable communities around our manufacturing facilities by taking a 3-pronged approach during the year. Firstly, we have constructed a 100KL water tank which benefitted around 600 families. Another element has been the creation of underground drainage system for sanitation which has positively impacted close to 300 households in the area. Thirdly, we funded construction of roads in the villages where close to 4,000 families reside.
