The outbreak of Covid 19 pandemic disrupted not only the businesses but had a great impact the lives, livelihood, and communities. We identified that there was immediate need to come together and work towards minimising the impact of the pandemic on public health and limit disruptions people were facing within the communities.
Care for Community During COVID-19
GHCL contributed immensely to help the marginalised section of the society. GHCL Foundation Trust came ahead to help people residing in the village areas near our plants to distribute essential items and kits in collaboration with the local administration. The team efficiently leveraged the connections with the local administration and government organisations and other resources to extend all possible support to the community.
The outbreak of pandemic forced children to be confined within the four walls of their houses. Keeping children engaged with the activities seemed very difficult as children from the interior villages did not have access to various interactive learning sessions.
The members of GHCL Foundation Trust along with Swadeep-NGO partner and Project Vidyajot outlined effective plan to reach the students with various activities while they were at home. During the COVID-19 pandemic, we trained teachers and parents to connect and communicate with us via Webinars using their smart phones.
