Mankind Pharma, the fourth largest pharmaceutical company of India, has come forward to donate Rs 1 Crore for Assam flood relief.
The company has donated the money in Chief Minister Relief Fund so that the money can be utilized to help build damaged houses, farm lands, schools, bridges and roads in Assam as lakhs of people have been affected and thousands of families are forced to take shelter in temporary relief camps because of the ongoing flood problem in the state.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajeev Juneja, CEO, Mankind Pharma, said, “This is one of the most challenging periods that our country is undergoing today when people in Assam are facing the devastating floods along with the deadly COVID-19. Being one of the leading pharma company of India, we would like the fund to be utilized for providing relief material and medical assistance. We hope the little support that we as an organization are extending can prove helpful for the affected families.”
More than 100 people have been killed in floods in the state this year so far.
