“Life’s persistent and most urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” Martin Luther King Jr.
COVID-19 has disrupted and devastated our lives in more ways than one.
While many families from socio-economically disadvantaged sections have lost their livelihoods, savings, education, it is even more hard-hitting for those who have lost their breadwinners. While still grieving for their loved ones, they are also pushed to think for their and children’s very survival. Many women have become widows and many children, orphans and now don’t have any other support system to embark on their future.
In such a situation, PepsiCo Global Business Services India in partnership with the PEPSICO FOUNDATION INC and Nirmaan Organization as the implementation partner, has come forward to lending a helping hand to 260+ such families. The support consists of 6 months of Ration and Livelihood Kit such as sewing machine, pushcart etc. for earning income. This initiative is supported by Women Development and Child Welfare Department (WCD), Government of Telangana.
PepsiCo GBS leaders Atul Kapoor, Sumona Velvadapu, Amit Aggarwal and Rajini Solomon of PepsiCo GBS India distributed the kits to 50 families in the presence of Smt. KRS Laxmi Devi, Joint Director, WCD and Mayur Patnala, Founder and CEO, Nirmaan Organization.
Through this initiative, 1,19,700 meals will be served and 1300+ people will get a chance to stand on their own feet.
We are very grateful to PepsiCo leadership for their unstinting support and generous contribution.
