Embassy Group, India’s Leading Real Estate Developer, has continued its support to the Bengaluru City Police as the number of positive cases of Covid-19 rise in Karnataka, by providing 900 sets of protective glasses for the force. The Group was thanked profusely by Mr. Bhaskar Rao, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Bengaluru city and Dr. B.R. Ravikanthe Gowda, IPS, Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Bengaluru city during a ceremony at the Commissioner of Police’s Office to felicitate the donors, including Infosys and Titan, for this initiative.
At the onset of the pandemic and the ensuing national lockdown, the police were working night and day to contain the spread of the virus and maintain order, putting themselves at risk. To aid them in conducting their duties in a safe and healthy manner, Embassy set up 11 hydration stations across the cities of Bangalore, Pune, Mumbai, Noida and Chennai. The stations are equipped with sanitizers, drinking water, tea/coffee, refreshments, access to first aid and toilets. In addition, Embassy has procured hand 50,150 sanitizers, 1,05,800 disposable protective masks and 1,05,400 nutritional snacks for the task forces in these cities.
With the lockdown being extended, Embassy then approached the police forces across the country to offer further assistance. Besides the protective glasses, Embassy has donated 600 personal protective equipment kits to the Mumbai Police and multivitamin supplements to the Pune Police.
Aditya Virwani, Chief Operating Officer, Embassy Group, said, “We are extremely honoured to have had the opportunity to support the police forces across the country tasked with the difficult job of managing the spread. With positive cases continuing to increase, we invite more organizations to join us in not only helping the police in doing their jobs, but also our under-privileged communities who have suffered the most during this pandemic and national lockdown.”
Mr. Bhaskar Rao, IPS, Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Bengaluru city, added, “It truly means a lot to receive the support of corporates such as Embassy Group. These initiatives have demonstrated tremendous faith and confidence in the efforts we’ve undertaken during the pandemic and has also increased their expectations of the quality of our continued support.”
