Mumbai: ICICI Lombard’s annual CSR initiative ‘Caring Hands’ was conducted across locations recently. This campaign is entirely executed and volunteered by employees with the association of the senior management team since its incorporation. This year, the initiative was held across locations with 3,000+ employee volunteering which impacted 40,000 lives. With its ethos of ‘Nibhaye Vaade’, ICICI Lombard continues to set up free eye check-up camps to ensure that no child is held back to achieve their true potential.
Since the inception of the programme in 2011, the company has touched 3,00,000+ lives to till date and reached out to 400 schools across India. It’s a true honour to be a part of a prestigious Guinness World Record Winner in 2017, with the most eye testing of 1,526 in one hour at multiple venues. ICICI Lombard believes that each child has the right to dream and make way for its future with our ‘Caring Hands’ initiative.
Speaking on the initiative Sheena Kapoor – Head Marketing, Corporate Communications & CSR, said, “We are very excited to roll out our 11th edition of ‘Caring Hands’ one of the flagship CSR initiatives of ICICI Lombard. What makes it truly unique and compelling is the fact that it is driven 100 per cent through employee volunteering. On one single day, over 3000 employees are spread across 300+ Govt schools across 50 cities in India. Moreover, it is incredibly heart-warming to meet these lovely school kids and every employee brimming with the satisfaction of being a small part of giving back to society.”
