New Delhi: Home Credit India (HCIN), a local arm of the international consumer finance provider with operations spanning over Europe and Asia, has extended its full support by partnering with Don Bosco Society to provide dry ration to feed over 20,000 people in Gurugram (Haryana). The relief effort is aimed at reaching out to vulnerable communities like stranded laborers, migrant workers and homeless people who are most harshly impacted by the pandemic.
Each dry ration kit per family contains food items like 5kg Rice, 5 kg Wheat flour/Atta, 2 kg Dal, 1 kg Sugar, 1 Ltr. Mustard oil, 1 kg Salt and 3 pcs of soap. The national lockdown has been unfavorable to millions of people, particularly the daily wagers. Given the magnitude of the health crisis, Home Credit endeavors to support the community and the authorities in every possible way. Social distancing, a key step in controlling the spread of Corona virus, will be strictly followed by the distribution team. The team will also be wearing masks during the drive.
Ondrej Kubik, CEO, Home Credit India said; ““We all stand as one, this is the time to stand together and we shall win over together. Our heart goes out to those suffering the most, we at Home Credit stand committed to support the community during the pandemic and have therefore collaborated with Don Bosco Society to reach out to the vulnerable sections of the society by offering assistance in the form of dry ration to ease their burden. As a humanitarian gesture we hope that we can contribute to the nation in some way or another, until then, we’ll continue our efforts to serve the society and be able to overcome this unprecedented period.”

The society has been empaneled with the government and mobilizing relief measures across the country.
