India, September 2020: The pandemic has affected the lives of millions of people worldwide. The various phases of lockdown have made it worse, especially for the people in rural areas of our country. But this did not stop BlueConch Technologies from fulfilling their social responsibility.
Team members from BlueConch Technologies went an extra mile and decided to celebrate their birthdays in a unique way this time. They extended a helping hand to the families of the Bamburde, Tailbaila village who were severely affected by the Nisarga Cyclone. BlueConchers decided to use the funds they would otherwise use for birthday celebrations to buy solar lamps for these villagers.
During the early stage of the pandemic, BlueConchers, along with the Company contributed funds through Personal Social Responsibility (PSR). These funds were donated to Sassoon Hospital Pune. This helped the hospital authorities in buying medicines and the day-to-day necessities to help fulfil their shortfalls. Along with this, they also donated hot/cold water dispensers to the patients affected by COVID-19 and health care workers at Sassoon Hospital.
The COVID-19 volunteers from Pune guided BlueConchers on how to go about making the donation. They stepped out of their houses and personally visited the cyclone-affected Tailbaila village even amidst the pandemic to make their contribution. They helped the villagers get back to their normal lives and also ensured safe drinking water for the health workers and patients without the fear of being infected amidst the COVID-19 risk.
BlueConch Technologies also joined hands with Goonj to aid in rebuilding the lives of people living in shelters in states of Assam and Bihar. Goonj is a non-profit organisation that undertakes disaster relief, community development, and humanitarian aid in various parts of the States across India.
States of Assam and Bihar were badly hit by massive rains in the month of July that led to devastating floods, resulting in the submergence of various villages, and affecting the daily livelihood of these villagers. Also, in addition to rains and floods, the spread of COVID-19 was a risk for these people.
So, the BlueConch Technologies’ team made a contribution and with the help of Goonj, donated funds raised to these displaced villagers to help rebuild their communities and lives and provide the much-needed aid in form of food, clothing, and shelter.
BlueConch Technologies and their community service team, Prerna – Inspiration, have always believed that Corporate Social Responsibility is a chance to give back to society and to create a happier and stronger community. BlueConchers look forward to carrying out many more acts of kindness by giving back to society and making a difference.
On “Prerna – Inspiration”, Prasanna Joshi, SVP-Finance & Administration (Facility Management), Legal, Procurement, CSR & Immigration at BlueConch Technologies further says “At BlueConch Technologies, we believe that there is nothing more rewarding and satisfying than giving back to society and making a difference in the lives of people. Our Prerna team along with other BlueConch volunteers have inculcated the habit of “Personal Social Responsibility” (PSR) and are always actively involved in contributing to society and being the positive change-makers.”
