HOW MANAPPURAM HELPED IN INDIA'S FIGHT AGAINST COVID-19
UNIQUE TIMES|January - February 2022
Manappuram Finance collaborated with the Indian Medical Association (IMA), various Government Homoeopathy hospitals, and local governing bodies to distribute sanitizers, masks and Homoeopathic immunity boosting medicines to the common people and police personnel.

The year 2020 brought with it an unprecedented challenge to humanity. As Cov-id-19 spread like wildfire to become a worldwide pandemic, governments across the world were forced to take harsh measures to deal with the contagion. Businesses and educational institutions had to be shut down for prolonged periods disrupting the livelihoods of millions of people and affecting the education of children. Many people found themselves out of work and in deep distress, unable to provide even basic necessities for their families.

It was against this backdrop that the entire team of employees at Manappuram Finance joined forces to contribute to the nation’s fight against COVID-19. A 24x7, the multipronged approach was put in place where Manappuram deployed its human and financial resources for on-the-ground efforts to help in the nation’s battle against COVID-19. Our team worked relentlessly during the pandemic to assist the most vulnerable people as they tried to cope with this calamity. Here, then, is a brief account of all that was accomplished in our quest to overcome the virus.

Free Vaccination to employees across India:

The best way to win the fight against the virus is to begin at home. That was the idea behind Manappuram tying up with FICCI to extend vaccinations to all its employees and their family members. The drive began in earnest after India opened its vaccination campaign to all citizens over the age of 18 years. Employees of the company and their family members located across the country were covered, as also all the employees and family members of our group companies.

Distribution of food kits to the deprived:

As soon as the lockdown began, it became clear that deprived communities across the country would need support with daily essentials, as many were in dire straits. At Manappuram, we quickly launched a programme to distribute food kits to the needy accompanied by generous financial contributions to ensure the continued functioning of community kitchens in nearby villages.

Support for health infrastructure:
