The CSR arm of Vodafone Idea Limited Vodafone Foundation has reached out to vulnerable sections with essential items during these testing times under its Gali Gali Gaon Gaon initiative. Collaborating with the Learning Links Foundation, Vodafone Foundation has distributed ration kits to around 3000 families across Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Maharastra &Karnataka.
“With over 64000 reported COVID 19 cases in India, the Government, as well as Businesses, have been employing various initiatives to comfort the lower stratum of the economy and invited collective support from development organizations like ours to enhance the efficiency and scale. This endeavour to provide 10 days’ worth of ration kits to 3000 families each, is supporting the larger cause as well as taking care of the basic sustenance needs of some of the most impacted families that we have been working closely with under our ongoing Jaadu Ginni Ka financial literacy programme. I would like to thank the team’s efforts and co-operation in facilitating the JGK infrastructure and network to help and support the people in need, during this crisis.” P. Balaji, Director – Vodafone Foundation, was quoted as saying.
