Schaeffler supports COVID-19 relief projects
Schaeffler supports COVID19 relief – At Schaeffler, social commitment is a major concern. With the help of the Association for India’s Development, or AID for short, the Automotive Aftermarket is also contributing significantly to the fight against the epidemic in India.
The country was one of the hardest affected by the Corona epidemic globally, with the World Health Organization totaling that more than 34 million people have been infected with COVID-19 in India.
So far, around 460,000 people have succumbed. Rural areas, in particular, have limited medical infrastructure, and the pandemic’s consequences will be seen for a long period.
CEO Schaeffler Automotive Aftermarket, Michael Song said, “We agreed to act shortly in light of the pandemic’s extensive grief and lament, as well as the urgent need for worldwide solidarity. With our donation, we can boost AID’s effective and direct efforts to assist individuals who are unable to help themselves.”
AID will put the 45,000 Euros to good use where it is most needed: New COVID centers will be established in distant areas in Gujarat, as well as in Tamil Nadu, in southern India, to give immunization to the populace. Rural hospitals will receive medical equipment, and food will be delivered to families in need as a result of the pandemic.
Somnath Mukherjee, Development Coordinator of AID, will use Schaeffler’s donation to enhance things in many communities. Improving public health care and other important infrastructure in rural areas is important for this.”
