Embassy Office Parks Expresses Solidarity with India’s Corona Warriors
May 01, 2020
India’s first listed REIT, Embassy Office Parks has committed itself to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic since its outbreak. The company has launched various initiatives in the cities of Bengaluru, Mumbai, Noida and Pune with a focus on extending support to the police and fire personnel serving on the frontlines of the pandemic.
Mike Holland, CEO Embassy REIT said, “The coronavirus outbreak is first and foremost a human tragedy, affecting hundreds of thousands of people across the globe. The government’s efforts in curtailing the spread of the disease are truly commendable; it is also the duty of every corporation to help in providing supplemental support and relief where possible. At Embassy Office Parks, we have focused our efforts to support community workers and have invested over Rs 10 million to combat the COVID-19 crisis, with significant interventions.”
While maintaining order and ensuring that citizens are obeying lock-down, the traffic police are at a greater risk of contracting the virus. To aid them in conducting their duties in a safe and healthy manner, Embassy REIT has set up eight hydration stations in the cities of Bengaluru, Pune, Noida and Mumbai, where Embassy properties are located. The stations are equipped with drinking water, tea & coffee makers, refreshments, access to first aid and toilets. These hydration stations are open 24 hours a day so that police personnel can take rest and refreshment between shifts.
In addition, Embassy REIT has procured and handed over 50,000 sanitisers, more than 100,000 disposable protective masks and nutritional snacks for the task forces in these cities. Everyday over 15,000 police employees are supported by this initiative and this program has touched the lives of over 200,000 police personnel till date.
Dr. BR Ravikanthe Gowda, Joint Commissioner of Traffic, Bengaluru City Traffic Police, said, “We were very grateful and pleasantly surprised when we were approached by Embassy to offer their support to our entire force. As the traffic police personnel are working day and night to?contain the spread of the virus, we are taking precautions to safeguard their?health as well. Such acts of kindness and generosity have really been encouraging and motivating to the entire force.”
Furthermore, Embassy REIT has provided regular sanitisation and fumigation to police stations and fire stations in multiple cities. Regular servicing along with donation of fumigation equipment have helped in curtailing the spread of the virus and protecting the lives of the social workers.
Madhukar Panday, Joint Commissioner of Police, Traffic, Mumbai said, “We are thankful to the Embassy team, who have been supporting us through this tough phase by providing sanitisers, nourishment and for setting up two hydration points to help the on-ground traffic police personnel.”
