Delhi, June 2020: Amidst multiple tales of the struggle for survival in the ongoing global COVID-19 crisis, Mankind Pharma has been supporting the communities and frontline workers fighting the deadly virus. The company has stepped up and offered Rs. 1 lakh aid to C. Mohan who owns a small salon in Madurai for feeding the needy during the pandemic. He has given 615 local families a kit each of 5kg rice, vegetables, groceries and cooking oil to survive.
Mankind Pharma has been involved in the country’s fight against the pandemic in several ways. The company has stepped up and applauded the heroic tale of Jyoti Kumari for bringing back her injured father on a bicycle to her home in Bihar. Besides producing affordable medicines, it has donated ventilators, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and medicines to the states. Now Mankind is extending support to Mr C. Mohan for helping the local community with necessary items during this crisis. Interestingly, he has been able to do this selfless act with the money he had saved over the years for his daughter’s education.
Mankind Pharma’s aspiration to become the top pharma company in India is not just about revenues, but also by being No. 1 in CSR activities, and by helping the nation in a crisis. Standing true to its motto of serving people, the company has also donated INR 51 crore to the CM Care Fund last month. In addition to this, all employees of Mankind Pharma have also contributed one day’s salary for the relief fund.
Says Mr. Rajeev Juneja, CEO Mankind Pharma, “Mankind Pharma is standing by everyone in this unprecedented crisis. Mankind salutes the selfless commitment and service of Mr C Mohan from Madurai, who believe that helping others is the most satisfying act. With his salon closed and no earnings, Mr Mohan continues to provide food kits to more than 600 families from his savings over the years. His strong dedication must be rewarded. We hope with our little support he can fulfil his daughter’s dreams of becoming a civil servant.”
Mr. Mohan said, “I thank Mankind Pharma for their support and look forward to supporting my daughter in her future studies. Our whole family is very thankful for Mankind Pharma for their generous gesture.”
