COVID-19, a global pandemic has registered millions of cases across the globe and are only on the rise. It is spiralling irrepressibly within many countries in the world and has disrupted the flow of life in many aspects. Effective humanitarian response to this global crisis is the need of the hour.
Transworld Group continued its legacy of working for the community in disaster and crisis situations. Lockdown exacerbated the situation of daily wagers as they lost wages and remain stranded in cities without access to food and basic hygiene. To avert the immediate hunger and starvation, we extended support by providing ration to 500 families of daily wage workers residing in Asia’s largest slum, Dharavi, in Mumbai who is the hardest hit and form most vulnerable households with the support of GiveIndia platform implemented by ActionAid.
To meet the urgent need of PPE kits to safeguard the health workers who have been protecting and safeguarding people round the clock with immense care and compassion, we collaborated with InDeed – Dentsu Aegis Network (India) to provide 300 PPE kits in Maharashtra. The support helped 300 health care workers on the front lines to do their life-saving work in Maharashtra by engaging with Maharashtra Health Department, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC).
The Transworld Group remains committed to its mission of giving back to the community especially when it is needed the most amidst these unprecedent times of human crisis.
