Essar Foundation’s efforts to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak

At Essar Foundation, our efforts to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak has been focused on reaching out to the most marginalised and vulnerable communities, including daily wage earners, homeless, transgenders, and women with a background of domestic violence. We are part of the Government of Maharashtra Corona Control CSR Group. This is helping us coordinate efforts directly with the state machinery and work jointly with leading groups. We also have tie-ups with several companies and non-profits to consolidate structured relief efforts by identifying communities and responsibly directing funds. The Essar Covid-19 Relief Fund is committed to support various groups that are in need of funding. We are also ensuring that the contributions by Essar employees and senior leadership are best utilised for Covid-19 relief work.
