Message from the Chairperson

What an unforgettable year it has been! The Coronavirus pandemic hit the world like a hurricane more than a year ago, and humankind continues to be in its path of destruction even today. This past year has been incredibly challenging as the virus surged across geographies, inflicting the loss of loved ones on so many people. Bound to our homes, we expended ourselves in every direction like never before. In all this turmoil, I find strength, optimism, and motivation to continue helping society in this time of need. It is indeed heartening to see the collective dedication of so many like-minded individuals and corporations. The community has come together to face the calamity by sourcing medical equipment, hospital consumables, vaccines, and food kits to help people in need. This show of unity and collaboration between corporations and the Indian government has been the true epitome of democracy. I am sincerely grateful to all our dear colleagues for their generous donations. We were able to increase the scope of our contributions quite significantly because of your generosity. My team has been working tirelessly throughout and has been very committed and enthusiastic in driving our mission forward. As the new year began, we were faced with tougher challenges and the need to provide faster and quicker solutions to address the current situation and to be prepared for all possibilities in the days to come. I would like to send out a collective prayer into the universe to end these trying times and for the world to be a happy and safe place for humanity once again.
