Hyderabad, Apr 9: With migrant labour facing tough time in coping with the situation arised due to COVID-19 pandemic and total lockdown which brought India virtually to a standstill position, GMR Hyderabad International Airport Limited (GHIAL) came to their rescue during the hour of need.
With the Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting total lockdown having brought India virtually to a standstill position, many migrant labour are facing a tough time in coping with the situation.
With neither money in their hands nor any safe shelter available during the current lockdown, the migrant labour are the most affected during these tumultuous times.
Recognizing the important role played by these migrant labour in nation building and in keeping the economy running, GHIAL believes that it is our society’s combined civic duty to support them in their hour of need.
In line with this, GHIAL in coordination with Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), has started distribution of packets of freshly cooked food to the city’s migrant labour.
From April 6 onwards, GHIAL has started distributing 1000 food packets per day (500 lunch packets + 500 dinner packets), which will continue till the lockdown is lifted (April 14).
GMR Group’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm GMR Varalakshmi Foundation (GMRVF) is facilitating the process.
The food packets have been prepared under hygienic conditions and contain 300 gms of cooked rice items in each packet. The distribution is presently being undertaken to the migrant labour residing in the Shastripuram area by GHMC, given the restrictions of movement due to the lockdown, a statement here said on Thursday.
