As part of its corporate social responsibility (CSR), Reliance Industries Ltd has donated Rs 11 crore to the Bihar Chief Minister’s Relief Fund for taking forward the government’s relief and rehabilitation program towards its flood victims.
While handing the cheque to the state chief minister Nitish Kumar, Nita Ambani, chairperson, Dhirubhai Ambani Foundation, said, “Given the scale of the disaster, the need is for companies to come forward and extend a helping hand to the government as well as the institutions which are involved with the relief efforts.”
“Some of the hardest work is still ahead and it will require the creative skill and generosity of the whole country. We resolve to partner the state in both alleviating the suffering of the people as well as its future relief and rehabilitation efforts,” she added.
She hoped that the funds would be used to vanquish the spread of epidemics and provide preventive vaccination to all, especially children and old people.
