New Delhi, April 21, 2020: Fulfilling its commitment towards the COVID-19 relief efforts, Honda India Foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of all Honda group companies in India handed over 800 units of Honda engine powered High Pressure Backpack Sprayers in Haryana, Rajasthan, Karnataka and Gujarat.
The equipment was handed over to Mr. Sadan Ahlawat (Personal Secretary to Deputy Chief Minister of Haryana), Mr. Gautam Trivedi (Personal Assistant to Health Minister of Rajasthan), Mr. Sarafraj Khan (Joint Commisioner, Bengaluru, Karnataka) and Mr. M.N. Patel (Deputy Collector, Gujarat Urban Development Mission, Gandhinagar, Gujarat).
These High Pressure Backpack Sprayers are built with 4-stroke technology and Honda’s reliable engine. The environment friendly machines and portable machines can be used easily in multi-storey buildings and helps in completing the sanitization process much faster as the spray can reach to distant areas through its high speed capacity.
Additionally, being a socially responsible corporate, the company understands the need of the hour and supports those most in need as major services stay disrupted. Therefore, in order to take care of the poor and underprivileged in these difficult times, Honda started the distribution of 1,000 food packets each day since 3 April, 2020 to the people of Khoh Village (Dist. Gurugram) & Mohindergarh (Haryana) and to the villages of Vitthalapur, Gujarat.
Supporting the Karnataka Police who is risking their life for the safety of people, Honda started distributing over 500 food packets each day beginning 1 April, 2020.
Lastly, catering to the poor and homeless at this crucial time, Honda provided a total of 8,760 food packets during a period of 22 days to the local administration of Tapukara & Greater Noida.
