In May 2020, there were many doctors in the COVID-19 wards and many police officers 👮♂️ in the metropolitan areas of Mumbai who were exposed to the virus. The exposure was taking a toll on the task force. There was an increasing number of deaths, which was of great concern to the administration.
We, in our Dr. KG Deshmukh Charitable Trust and Making A Difference Foundation, decided to offer necessary help to the doctors in a few Government hospitals in Mumbai and all the 115 Police Stations in Mumbai Metropolitan Region.
We provided them with sanitizers, masks, personal protection kits, and sanitizer stands. In the process of distributing the items, the team also faced the risk of exposure, yet all our volunteers bravely carried out the distribution.
It gave us immense satisfaction to protect all the frontline workers when there was a shortage of these lifesaving kits. This act was made possible by the generous donations from our family and friends 😊. My heartfelt gratitude 🙏 .
