As fight against COVID 19 is still continues in India, RenewSys, which is country’s first integrated manufacturer of solar photovoltaic (PV) modules and its key components, has offered helping hand through undertaking various initiatives in order to safeguard the health and overall wellbeing of its stakeholders and of communities across India.
With an aim to support the continued smooth functioning of subsidized eye care treatment, the company, which is the renewable energy division of the ENPEE Group, said that it has contributed over Rs 53 lakh towards providing personal protection equipment (PPE) for doctors, medical and non-medical staff at the 10 ‘Sankara Eye Hospitals’ and 11 ‘vision centres’ pan India.
Informing about this initiative, Sanjay Kirpalani, Chairman, RenewSys India and ENPEE Group alongwith Arun Lakhani, Director, said that, “whilst massive efforts are ongoing, challenges will continue to arise as we establish a new normal post-COVID 19. In such an environment, being able to ensure comfort to those who are on the frontlines of civic service and hospital care is crucial and a priority for us.”
They further added that “this contribution is a sign of our lasting, resolute commitment to support a global recovery from this pandemic and the consequences thereof. It is a part of a larger pursuit to ensure the continued wellbeing and betterment of our teams, their families, customers, vendors, stakeholders and the communities we associate with.”
They also hoped that “this contribution will bring some measure of reassurance to doctors and caregivers, as well as the patients who visit these facilities for treatment.”
However, these PPE’s will be directed through ‘Mission for Vision’, a not-for-profit organization that works on eradicating avoidable blindness in 20 Indian states.
“The ENPEE Group has been a long standing partner in our vision towards eradicating avoidable blindness. The lack of PPE prevents frontline staff from providing eye-care services to marginalized communities and this increases the risk of these communities becoming visually impaired and thereby further socio-economically compromised. We are very grateful for RenewSys India and ENPEE Group’s generous support in procuring PPE for our projects in India,” commented Elizabeth Kurian, CEO, Mission for Vision.
She further added “this will help us ensure that our doctors, optometrists and patients are well-protected from the highly virulent Coronavirus and we can continue providing uninterrupted services to vulnerable communities in need of eye health.”
Commenting on the development, Avinash Hiranandani, Global CEO and Managing Director, RenewSys India, said that “RenewSys understands the essential role that businesses can play in these challenging times and we are committed to bolstering the efforts to combat this pandemic on both the health and economic well-being fronts.”
On his company’s operations amid Covid-19 scenario Hiranandani told that, “even as business has resumed we will continue to pitch in for the wellbeing of our employees and customers, prioritizing social distancing, transport, sanitation and other health-related best practices.”
On the company’s future plans, he added that, “we are also in advanced discussions to expand our manufacturing footprint in India in keeping with the Prime Minister Modi’s call to be ‘vocal for local’ and promoting solar manufacturing independence.”
Recently during the month of May, the company had supported local policeforce at Jigani, Bengaluru near its plant location, with 300 grocery kits which contains essential items like atta, rice, dal, sugar, soap etc.
