Legrand India organizes Vaccination Camps across 6 cities in India
The Vaccination drive is a part of Group Legrand India’s CSR initiative which also aligns with the nation’s plan to vaccinate its citizens at a rapid pace and win the fight against Coronavirus. The vaccination doses provided across all the 6 cities will be free of cost and the goal is to immunize the electricians, retailers, channel partners and the community at large.
The mass vaccination drive is being conducted in association with the State Governments and the Collective Good Foundation – an initiative by Samhita Group (NGO), that is dedicated to developing ecosystems that facilitate sustainable impact.
One of the key focus areas of Legrand India CSR is healthcare when it comes to giving back to the society. Through the vaccination drive, Group Legrand India is looking forward to fully vaccinate 25,000 people across India and achieving this target will also mark the celebration of their 25th Anniversary. Legrand India is always committed to serve its community, and through their CSR initiatives their aim is to ensure safety of the community. Another example of their contribution was seen last year as Legrand India distributed PPE kits and Oxygen supplies to community amid growing COVID cases in India.
To boost this activity further and encourage maximum people to walk-in at the vaccination camps in these cities, Group Legrand India has also partnered with Radio Mirchi and Zee Hindustan. This partnership will help in conveying the information of the ongoing vaccination drive and create an increased awareness amongst the citizens residing in Nashik, Pune, Noida, Bangalore, Chennai and Kochi.
Speaking on this Mr. Tony Berland, Managing Director and CEO, Group Legrand India said, “At Legrand, we greatly care about our community and strongly believe in giving back to the society. As healthcare, safety and security of our people are the key focus areas for us, we invariably try to contribute as much as we can through our CSR initiatives. Owning to India’s mission of fully vaccinating the 1.3 billion population, we are delighted to be a benefactor in this process. We are also excited about the completion of 25 glorious years of Legrand in the Indian market and with this zeal we pledge to fully vaccinate 25,000 people across India, which will also mark our silver jubilee.”
