The Board of MRF Limited has committed to spend a sum of Rs.25 crores to support various initiatives to address the exigencies arising out of the COVID pandemic.
The support would be in the form of contribution to the PM Cares Fund at the Central level, support to various State Governments where the Company’s factories are located and also direct district level projects undertaken to provide relief in various forms including providing medicines, personal protective equipment for medical and relief personnel and also weaker sections of society, sanitisation of areas, distribution of essentials to migrant labour and local community to ensure better access to food and nutrition for the underprivileged sections of the society that is affected in the current situation.
The Company’s management team will be working with District level authorities to roll the relief activities that are being supported directly.
COVID-19 pandemic is one of the toughest challenges that the world has faced. At such a time, it is imperative for businesses to join hands with the governments to support the communities we live and serve in. MRF recognises this and is accordingly rolling out these initiatives.
